Join AEI and the Norse Corporation for a groundbreaking discussion on the Iranian cyber threat and the key findings from their joint report analyzing Iran’s IT infrastructure and malware activity.
Frequent visitors to Iraq and the Middle East explore the challenges facing Iraq and how the United States can successfully support efforts to drive back ISIS and strengthen Iraqi society.
Panelists discuss whether America’s nonproliferation negotiations with Iran are destined to end in failure, drawing parallels to attempted US nuclear negotiations with North Korea.
Even if an agreement in the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the U.S. is made before its deadline, little suggest that this would actually prevent Iran from continuing to develop a nuclear weapons program, something the country has sought for many years.
It is highly unlikely that Iran will be negotiated out of its objective of getting nuclear weapons, a mission the country’s leaders have been pursuing for more than thirty years. Though sanctions are in place, this will not deter them from building a broad and deep weapons infrastructure.
President Obama needs reminding that petulance is for teenagers, not presidents. US interests extend beyond personalities and temporary frustrations.
There are still nearly two years left in President Obama’s second term, but historians looking back on his record in foreign policy will surely identify one costly error: his refusal to follow through on the implied threat in stating that the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons would be a “red line.”
In a recent development in Yemen, Iran-backed Houthi rebels moved closer to the Bab Al Mandab strait, a highly important waterway where an estimated forty percent of global maritime trade moves through. Should the rebels gain control of such a strategic location, international concern is sure to be heightened.
Yemen is on a rapid downward spiral. AEI Research Fellow Katherine Zimmerman explains how the conflict in Yemen could play out much like the war raging in Syria.
At some point, support for the left and support for Israel must conflict, and unfortunately Jews tend to choose the former over the latter.
Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has taken on an ambitious task: addressing and trying to fix the extensive gender imbalance in his country’s labor market, a policy now known as “Womenomics.”
As Iran’s foreign minister voiced criticism over the recent Saudi-led airstrikes against Shiite-rebels in Yemen, it is clear that the relationship between Saudi Sunnis and mainly Iran Shiites is becoming increasingly fragile. His reaction comes as the Iran nuclear negotiations continue, with questions now being raised if the Yemen-situation will affect the talks.
India’s recent reactions to foreign opinion has only made it look small.
