    7 hrs ago | Silicon Alley Insider

    It took 18 months of often-tortured diplomacy, but Iran and a US-led group of countries may be just days away from signing a "political agreement" to determine limitations on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions. In the 18 months since then, Iran exceeded negotiated oil export caps, grew its stockpile of 5% enriched uranium, which has gone through around half the centrifuge revolutions needed to reach weapons grade, by 11%; fed uranium into an advanced centrifuge in violation of the JPOA's terms, and failed to answer 11 of 12 questions international monitors posed about their nuclear weaponization research.

    Yesterday | Washington Examiner

    Negotiations with Iran over limiting its nuclear program appeared close to agreement Thursday, but the reported outlines of a possible deal contained concessions by international negotiators expected to make it politically unpalatable in Washington. The Associated Press reported that the United States is considering letting Iran run several hundred centrifuges used to enrich uranium at Fordow, a heavily fortified underground site near the Shiite holy city of Qom that Iran kept secret from international inspectors until it disclosed the facility in 2009.

    Thursday | Arutz Sheva Israel News

    The United States is considering letting Iran run hundreds of centrifuges at a once-secret, fortified underground bunker in exchange for limits on centrifuge work and research and development at other sites, officials told The Associated Press on Thursday. Western officials familiar with details of the negotiations told the news agency the deal would allow Iran to run several hundred of the devices at the Fordow facility, although the Iranians would not be allowed to do work that could lead to an atomic bomb and the site would be subject to international inspections.

  12. Analysis: Shiite Pakistani casualties of the wars in Syria and IraqRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Mar 17 | The Long War Journal

    A comparative analysis of funeral services held in Iran for seven Shiite Pakistani nationals killed in combat in Syria and Iraq , and those of Shiite Afghan casualties in Syria , provides insight into Tehran's use of non-Iranian Shiites in its struggle against regional Sunni adversaries such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and their salafist jihadist affiliates. As with the Afghan casualties , the funeral processions of all Shiite Pakistani "martyrs" killed in Syria and Iraq took place in Iran, in the presence of their family and relatives, which indicates that they were residing there prior to their deployment, and did not volunteer for combat from Pakistan.

    Monday Mar 16 | News Max

    So what do we make of the 47 Republican senators who decided to write a letter to Iran's leaders in the midst of nuclear arms negotiations between President Obama and the less-than-transparent nation of Iran? At this juncture, we know that Iran has operated secret nuclear facilities in the past and that estimates suggest Iran could have 190,000 centrifuges enriching uranium within a matter of several weeks. The lack of transparency observed by the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency is very concerning for anyone living outside of Iran, as inspectors are kept in the dark regarding the nation's military nuclear program.

    Sunday Mar 15 | The Times of Israel

    The United States and Iran plunged back into negotiations Sunday, hoping to end once and for all a decades-long standoff that has raised the specter of an Iranian nuclear arsenal, a new atomic arms race in the Middle East and even a US or Israeli military intervention. Two weeks out from a deadline for a framework accord, some officials said the awesomeness of the diplomatic task meant negotiators would likely settle for an announcement that they've made enough progress to justify further talks.

    Friday Mar 13 | Ms. Magazine

    Virginity has long been regarded as a sacred state of being-with inextricable ties to a patriarchal , heteronormative and archaic narrative of what it means to "lose" it. In some cultures, the act of losing one's virginity signifies a woman's deflowering, her "coming-of-age," her much-anticipated arrival into society's-and her partner's-awaiting arms.
