U.N. Announces Iran To Lead Conference On Nuclear Disarmament | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Iran, the leading state sponsor of terror, is scheduled to lead the United Nations Conference on Disarmament from March 18-29 and May 13-24, the U.N. announced last week.

    Each year, the U.N. disarmament conference is presided over by one of the 65 member countries. Each country serves as conference president for four working weeks. The presidency rotates among the members in alphabetical order. Other countries to serve as conference presidents this year are India, Indonesia, Iraq, Ireland, and Israel.

    The Conference on Disarmament is the U.N. body in charge of negotiating nuclear disarmament treaties and a slew of other weapons agreements. Concern over Iran's nuclear ambitions has grown in recent decades, especially as the Iranian regime has grown more aggressive in the Middle East through a network of terror groups.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a U.N. nuclear watchdog organization, warned last year that Tehran has likely stockpiled enough enriched Uranium to make several nuclear warheads. IAEA inspectors have for months attempted to gain access to Iran's stockpiles of nuclear material for inspection, but Tehran has barred them.

    "Though it may be drowned out due to all the other bad news out of the Middle East involving Iran, the regime is getting closer and closer to establishing itself as a threshold nuclear state," Behnam Ben Taleblu, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told Fox News.

    "If anything, Iran seems to be capitalizing on all the mayhem in the Middle East, mayhem which Washington has failed to curb or manage well, to press ahead in what appears to be a quest for the ultimate deterrent," he added.

    On October 7, the terror group Hamas, backed by Iran, invaded Israel from the Gaza Strip, leading to the death of roughly 1,200 Israelis and the capture of hundreds more in the deadliest day for Jews since the Holocaust. In recent weeks, Iran has stepped up direct attacks on its neighbors in Iraq, Syria, and Pakistan.

    Iran's strikes, carried out by the Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, led to an unprecedented exchange of fire between Tehran and Islamabad. After an Iranian airstrike killed at least two children and wounded three others, according to Pakistan's foreign ministry, Pakistani forces launched an airstrike of its own in Iranian territory.

    According to Iran's foreign ministry, the Pakistani airstrike killed at least nine people, none of whom were citizens of Iran. Tehran said that four children, three women, and two men died in the strike. Both sides justified their airstrikes saying that their attacks were directed at insurgents inside the other country aiming to attack their own.

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
