    Herlad Sun, January 01, 2018 - IT may wind up fizzling out, or it may end in tears. But the current wave of protests sweeping Iran is, in a world that seems more chaotic and dangerous every day, a real reason for optimism for 2018.Not only have the protesters raised the real possibility that one of the world’s most obnoxious and destabilising wannabe nuclear powers might give way to something more peaceful and pro-Western,

This terrorist attack left 17 killed and dozens of others wounded in the parliament and the tomb of former Iranian regime leader Ruhollah Khomeini.

    For a long time Iran has been involved in lots of regional and international crises, its nuclear plan is just one of them. The opposition group which unveiled covered nuclear program in Iran for the first time, says that Iran has not given up its plan to gain nuclear weapon.

    Despite U.S. government conclusions to the contrary, Iran is cheating on the 2015 nuclear deal and is actively weaponizing nukes, according to the group who uncovered Iran’s most recent nuclear ambitions in the first place.

    The reaction seen from Iranian state media outlets to the visit paid by US President Donald Trump last week to Saudi Arabia have been unorthodox, to say the least.
