    The rationale behind this assumption is highest level of ambiguity, balance of power and considerable deterrence on both sides. These early talks by agency watch dog were failed partly due to their miss-calculations about Iran. Given the media hype, Israeli threats and economic sections on Iran, they were demanding access to “suspected military sites and workshops which are not covered by current inspections.” Now it’s very interesting to see if Iran let these inspectors walk around wherever they want to. History is repeating itself --- similar inspections were underway in Iraq ten years back and to an extent that various presidential palaces were considered suspected areas and pictures of ‘drop-tank’ dumpsites were shown in media as potential N-bombs. There were times that Iraq was humiliated enough to retaliate and not to let further inspections. Similar recipe is being made ready for Iran. However, scenario is little different here this time; following the same blueprint would be another miss-calculation, as per my understanding; especially once Iran allegedly tested explosives designed for its Shahab-3 missile warhead in Marivan in 2003, the agency said in its Nov. 8 report last year. It is very unfortunate to see this development taking place ahead of any wider nuclear negotiations between Iran and the six world powers, the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
