The sixth and final round of talks between the Iranian regime and P5+1, which started on July 3, is quickly running its course toward its self-imposed July 20 deadline, at which time world powers and the Iranian regime are supposed to reach a final agreement on Iran’s illicit nuclear program and curb the nuclear capabilities of a regime that has already proven to be a regional and global threat without nuclear weapons.
The talks were initially launched with a lot of pomp and ceremony. Accordingly, a lot of optimism was pumped into mainstream media, mainly centered on the positive changes that would supposedly occur now that the Iranian regime’s new president Hassan Rouhani had assumed office, and his foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was at the helm of Iranian negotiating team.

Hassan Rouhani was “elected” as the President on June 15, 2013.According to reports published by Iranian regime officials and by domestic and international media, the economic, political and social situations have all deteriorated in Iran during the past year, under Hassan Rouhani’s government.

Nevertheless, the regime’s press provides an introductory look at these issues. In a series of special reports we will examine his record from various aspects: Continue reading

Now before we start the program, Linda (Chavez) talked about the deteriorating conditions at Camp Liberty. It also includes, there have been no gasoline deliveries…
…what’s going on around them, outside the camp, well it continues, there are Quds Force people who are no training Badr forces. They continue to plan. The Iranian regime continues to support the activities of those who are outside the fence, who directly threaten those in Camp Liberty. And where is the UN? They ran, they left, they are not there, they are not doing their jobs, whether to bear witness and protect the people in Camp Liberty. So today, we must demand renewed action. We must demand some action from the UN to fulfill their mission to protect those at Camp Liberty from the dire conditions they are suffering from. Thank you.

It is also been one more year that we have seen the deterioration of things on the ground for those 2400 brave people who are in fact kept in what is nothing more than a prison camp in Iraq, namely Camp Liberty. And if things were bad one year ago in Camp Liberty, today they are in fact worst. We have seen more brutal attacks and since the last time we met we have seen 52 brave persons executed at the hands of those aligned with the Maliki government and at the direction of those in Iran. We have seen the kikidnappingf individuals whose fate we still do not know. Continue reading
