John Bolton may push Pakistan to the orbit of Iran-Russia-China

1397/1/18 | 04:33
  Pakistan, a country that's long been a thorn in Washington’s side, could also be affected due to President Donald Trump’s choice to tap John Bolton as national security adviser who is widely expected to produce more hawkish U.S. foreign policy on North Korea and Iran.

1397/1/5 | 04:33
  President Donald Trump's decision to oust former national security adviser H.R. McMaster in favor of John Bolton in the latest major White House shake-up has experts concerned that the U.S. is positioning itself for conflict with North Korea and Iran.

Bush, has earned himself a reputation for advocating for aggressive foreign policy. Bolton's appointment was announced just two days after the 15th anniversary of ...

N Korea rejects chemical links to Syria as ‘mean US trick’

1396/12/11 | 04:33
  North Korea has dismissed reports of its cooperation with Syria over chemical weapons, saying such claims are mere US fabrications meant to put more pressure on Pyongyang and justify the American military intervention in Syria. “As we have clearly said several times, our republic does not develop, produce, and stockpile chemical weapons and opposes chemical weapons themselves,” the state-run television KRT cited a spokesman at the North Korean Foreign Ministry’s research institute of American studies as saying Friday.

Is Trump Talking Himself Into War With Iran, N Korea?

1396/11/18 | 04:33
  Neatly defining President Trump’s foreign policy has never been easy, characterized as it is by contradictory impulses, fragmentary ideas, and strains of paradox. However, on the two most arresting national security issues at the top of Trump’s agenda—Iran and North Korea—his approach is plain: aggressive confrontation is good; diplomacy is bad. The problem is that, even if Trump himself is not determined to go to war with either of these countries, he is making it far more likely. Last month, Trump once again waived nuclear-related ...

Indian clandestine support for Korean nukes

The Occident has been accusing Pakistan for alleged nuclear proliferation. Despite the concrete steps taken by Pakistan after the identification of the Dr AQ Khan network in 2004 and establishing security checks and balances comparable to developed countries’ nuclear programs, Pakistan continues to be whipped and sordid assumptions are made of ragtag militia making away with nuclear devices from Pakistan’s arsenal and threatening the world.   With the rise of North Korean nuclear devices and the war of words between US President Donald ...

US attacking North Korea would be like trying to get rid of Allah: Retired South Korean General

1396/10/26 | 04:33

Will North Korea's Kim Jong Un destroy the environment with his nuclear bombs?

1396/9/13 | 04:33
North Korea’s pursuit to successfully launch a long-range nuclear missile brings about a number of questions. Among the many curiosities, lies the question: how will the bombs affect the environment?

1396/8/9 | 04:33
