Earlier this week, outside the Khuzestan Governor’s Office, Ahvaz steel factory workers gathered to protest their unpaid wages and concerns regarding the company’s ownership and production issues.

A large group of Ahvaz factory workers can be seen gathered outside the Governor’s Office in the southern province in video taken at the protest. They are chanting, “a nation has never seen such injustice,” and “they chant for Imam Hossein, but pride themselves in thieving,” in reference to the Iranian government taking advantage of the third Shia Imam for its own profit.

Iran’s malign nuclear weapons programme didn’t stop after 2003, according to an October 29 report by Washington, DC-based think tank, the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS).

The report, which highlights documentation that Israel took from Iran’s so-called “nuclear archive”, merely says what most of us already know. Iran continued its nuclear weapons research in secret long after it was first revealed in 2002 and long after the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the nuclear deal, was agreed.

US: Iran’s Oil Tankers Could Cause Massive Environmental Destruction

The United States has warned other countries not to let Iranian oil tankers enter their territorial waters or ports to avoid violating US sanctions and risking untold economic or environmental damage.

The US reports that merely allowing Iran’s tankers into their waters may be seen to violate US sanctions, which could subject that country to fines or cut them off from the US financial market. However, they also warned that as US sanctions have cut off insurance for any such vessels, the country in question would be wholly liable for the cost of cleaning up after an accident, which could not only cost a lot of money, it could be especially damaging for the local environment.

US President Trump is making demands of the Iranian regime that it is unable to achieve. Hardliners see Iran’s nuclear program as an “insurance policy” against US surprises.

Trump also wants the revolution retired in a country that maintains its army and “guards” within its borders, destabilizing other countries and encircling them with rockets. Trump demands that Iran complies with the conditions of a natural state, and not use oil revenues and militias to restructure the territory.
