War mongering politicians : Rahul Gandhi supports idea of surgical strikes in Pakistan!

1397/6/4 | 22:51
Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Indian National Congress – India’s principal opposition party - has added his voice to claims that the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes on Pakistan earlier in the year, saying his party supports such action “100 percent”. Pakistan rubbished the claim when it was originally made and duly warned international organisations, including the United Nations, that the responsibility for the “escalating crisis” would rest with New Delhi. Talking candidly to a select group representing international ...

US House bans Trump from declaring war on Iran

1397/3/5 | 22:51
The US House of Representatives has unanimously passed an amendment that bans President Donald Trump from declaring a war on Iran without the Congress’s approval. The bipartisan amendment on Wednesday received approval from the House as part of the US National Defense Authorization Act of 2019. The amendment, introduced by Democratic Representative Keith Maurice Ellison and cosponsored by a number of other Democratic as well as Republican lawmakers, made clear Congress’s position that no law exists which gives the president power to launch ...

Is this the end of Gandhi dynasty in India?

1396/10/1 | 22:51
  As 47-year-old Rahul Gandhi becomes the sixth member of his family to head the 132-year-old Congress Party, I argue that a combination of circumstances and personal qualities will make it hard for Gandhi to claw his way back to power. Of course, South Asia isn’t the only part of the world where political dynasties bloom. (Just ask Justin Trudeau or Shinzo Abe.) But until recently the region has provided a handful of families exceptionally hospitable conditions in which to pass down power like a family heirloom.   Should Rahul ...

Democrats need many GOP senators to vote for Trump’s removal: Analyst

1396/9/25 | 22:51
An American political analyst and activist says calls for Donald Trump’s impeachment will not go very far since Democrats need many Republican senators to vote for the president’s removal which will not happen easily.    Myles Hoenig, a former Green Party candidate for Congress, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Friday while commenting on a statement by a US congresswoman who said Trump “poses a dangerous threat to national security.” Carol Shea-Porter, who serves as the Representative for New Hampshire's 1st congressional ...

Iran becomes the first country to sanction America over terrorism support

1396/5/25 | 22:51
  US Congress’s latest anti-Iran embargo's prompted a counter-measure by Iranian legislators. The US Congress’s latest anti-Iran embargo’s prompted a counter-measure by Iranian legislators. They overwhelmingly approved a motion denying visas to American military and intelligence forces as well as freezing their bank accounts.    The Iranian parliamentarians also voted to increase spending on the national missile program as well as the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’s defense mechanism. Press TV has asked Jim W. Dean, managing ...

More US lawmakers line up to derail Trump’s $110bn arms deal with Saudi

1396/3/8 | 22:51
  US President Donald Trump’s massive $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia faces a bleak future in Congress as more lawmakers raise questions about the regime's atrocities in Yemen. Trump signed the multi-billion dollar deal with Saudis during his maiden overseas trip to Riyadh last week, boasting that it was going to make and save “billions of dollars and millions of jobs” in the US. Besides fighter jets, warships and other weapons, the deal also included precision guided munitions (PGMs), the sale of which was halted last ...

Kashmir plebiscite: Would BJP listen sane voices in India?

1395/5/5 | 22:51
Congress leader Jyotiraditya Madhavrao Scindia called for plebiscite in India-held Kashmir, Press Trust of India (PTI) reported on Thursday. “In Kashmir today, there is a need for ‘rai shumari’,” Scindia said in his address to Lok Sabha, the lower house of India’s parliament. “PDP-BJP government has shed all the principles. Administration is divided and the government, which should support people, is using weapons against them.”Jammu and Kashmir People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are in a coalition ...

Shrinking space: The appalling state of Indian minorities

1395/3/26 | 22:51
 The Human Rights Commission of the US Congress on Tuesday expressed concerns over the growing violence against minorities in India. Joseph R Pitts, Co-Chairman of the Commission noted growing ties between the United States and India in different sectors but said these relations have failed to take note of the rising tide of human rights violations in India. “Many of these developments, certainly positive, have overlooked a troubling array of human rights concerns that should give us a pause,” said the Congressman. Lynching of Muslims ...

Indian lobbying: Pakistan losing charm for US

1395/2/12 | 22:51
 Several members of the US Congress launched on Wednesday a multi-pronged attack on Pakistan, questioning its policies and priorities. Pakistan had to bear this humiliation for the $742 million that the Obama administration has proposed for the country in the next fiscal year. The lawmakers suggested using this money somewhere else. Two US officials, Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Olson and US Agency for International Development’s Donald Sampler, made feeble attempts to defend the proposed aid but they could ...

A ticking bomb: US terms Pakistan a potential threat

1394/10/26 | 22:51
 Observing that "instability will continue for decades" in many parts of the world including Afghanistan and Pakistan, US President Barack Obama on Wedensday said both al-Qaida and ISIS pose a direct threat to the US during his final State of the Union Address to the Congress. "Both al-Qaida and now ISIL pose a direct threat to our people, because in today's world, even a handful of terrorists who place no value on human life, including their own, can do a lot of damage," Obama said. In his eight State of the Union Address, Obama said terrorist ...

  Congress president Sonia Gandhi will lead her party's protest march to the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Tuesday against "rising intolerance" during the BJP-led government's tenure.

The march will start from Parliament House and party leaders are expected to ...

Address to congress: Would pope leave an impact on the US political agenda?

1394/7/7 | 22:51
Pope Francis dove into some of the United States' thorniest political debates during his historic visit by urging the world's wealthiest nation to welcome immigrants, to end homelessness and do more to address climate change. Sometimes his political messages were blunt, like when he pleaded before the U.S. Congress for Americans to end "hostility" toward immigrants. Other times, they were more subtle, like the climate-conscious pope's decision to ride around in a tiny Fiat rather than a gas-guzzling SUV. Shortly before arrival, Francis denied he ...

Failed to sabotage Iran Nuclear deal: Has the AIPAC lost its clout?

1394/6/23 | 22:51
 It is hard to exaggerate the damage inflicted on AIPAC by the congressional defeat of its efforts to torpedo the Iran nuclear deal. It is not as if AIPAC won’t live to fight again, because it will, but this defeat has ruptured the status quo, possibly forever.  The extent of its efforts to defeat the deal was unprecedented even for a lobby known for its no-holds-barred wars against past White House initiatives it considered unfriendly to Israel, going all the way back to the Ford administration. AIPAC, and its cutout Citizens For A Nuclear ...

Communal violence: Modi distorting image of secular India

1394/5/3 | 22:51
Incidents of communal violence in India rose by nearly a quarter in the first five months of this year compared to the same period in 2014, the Economic Times reports. The newspaper, citing data from India’s Home Ministry, also reported a rise in deaths from communal violence, which rose from 26 between January and May 2014 to 43 over the same period this year. Outbreaks of communal violence, meanwhile, rose from 232 during the first five months of 2014, when a Congress Party–led coalition government was in power in New Delhi, to 287 over the ...

US-Iran deal: Let the congress exhaust

1394/2/23 | 22:51
SHAFAQNA PAKISTAN (Shia News Agency)-Republicans who are determined to sabotage the emerging nuclear agreement between Iran and the major powers wanted to pile on a number of problematic amendments but debate on them was precluded because of party infighting.The rationale for Congress to get involved in approving the Iran deal is perhaps a unique one: that Congress had initiated some of the economic sanctions on Iran—the harshest ones yet—that would be lifted in connection with the agreement. Other sanctions, imposed by the administration and ...

US-Iran deal: Congress playing in the hands of Zionist lobby

1394/2/17 | 22:51
SHAFAQNA PAKISTAN (Shia News Agency) Members of Congress said they remained unconvinced after Secretary of State John Kerry and other administration officials on Monday briefed them on nuclear negotiations with Iran. Republicans overwhelmingly oppose the framework agreement, arguing Congress should have a say on any final deal. Corker who proposed a bill against the dead said that he believes his bill to require congressional approval can withstand a threatened presidential veto. The bill also would prevent President Barack Obama from easing ...
