Iran's Nuclear Technology: Is There a Threat of War? The UN's International Atomic Energy Agency has released a report expressing " serious concerns " that Iran is still trying to develop technology that’s only useful for nuclear weapons, and that it has enough enriched uranium to fuel a small arsenal, if it chooses to build one. Will Israel launch a pre-emptive attack? Should the US be more assertive? Is diplomacy possible without new sanctions that might threaten Iran’s economy?
Iran's Nuclear Technology: Is There a Threat of War? The UN's International Atomic Energy Agency is reporting " serious concerns " about Iran's ability to build an atomic bomb. There's still no evidence that it wants to. But it's still trying to develop technology that's only useful for nuclear weapons, and that it has enough enriched uranium to fuel a small arsenal, if it chooses to build one. It's also moving more projects to a chamber under a mountain. In Israel, there's public debate over whether it's time to attack. Is that likely? Would the US become involved? Will Iran engage in diplomacy if it faces a tough new round of economic sanctions?
CBO: Under GOP plan, millions will lose coverage Republicans are divided and Democrats are saying, "we told you so," when it comes to official estimates of what it will cost to repeal and replace Obamacare. The Trump White House says the Congressional Budget Office is just wrong.
Political appointments and the reshaping of the judiciary President Trump has the chance for a long-term impact -- not just on the US Supreme Court, but on the entire federal court system. And his nominees are likely to get the support of a massive spending campaign by donors who don't have to reveal their names. Can President Trump "pack" the federal court system?
'Do-or-die' time on healthcare bill President Trump has demanded a House vote today on replacing Obamacare…whatever the details might be. Despite his campaign promise that nobody would lose health insurance, that's possible for 24 million people if he were finally to sign this bill into law.
