**Posted by Phineas (Photo via Israel Matzav) I’ve been saying for years, almost since the Jihadi War began, that the state of international relations gives me a “1930s vibe,” a feeling that we may be on a path toward another World War. That feeling has come and gone as the years passed, as I’m sure it did for […]

**Posted by Phineas This is an unbelievably stupid decision. I’ll let my friend Michael Ledeen explain why: Somebody on Twitter posted an upbeat message saying the US delegation to the latest round of talks with Iranian officials was quite optimistic. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a born optimist and I love optimism, but I’d rather […]

**Posted by Phineas Oh, how cute! The Iranian Navy is trying to show the Great Satan (1) that it’s all grown up, now! A senior Iranian naval commander says his country has sent several warships to the Atlantic Ocean, close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time.

**Posted by Phineas Not in the sense of “after him, a civil war,” of course. That line of thinking, which I’ve occasionally seen, is a bit overwrought. But something Stanley Kurtz wrote today made me think of Jimmy B. Discussing what may have motivated Obama to ink this bad deal with Iran, Kurtz discounts the […]

**Posted by Phineas There’s been a lot of talk since the weekend about the deal brokered between Iran on the one hand, and the US and its European partners on the other, that supposedly somehow represented a breakthrough in the quest to prevent the Iranian mullahs from getting their hands on nuclear weapons.
