North Korea has moved a missile to an east coast launch-site likely to test fire it -- allowing the regime in Pyongyang to save face if it is stepping down from its confrontation with the United States.
A perfect storm is motivating Iran’s sudden sprint to nukes. Tehran declared last week that it will now use up to 3,000 IR-2M centrifuges, which can enrich uranium at about quadruple the speed of Iran’s current enrichment rate.
To the uninitiated, Vladimir Putin seemingly has undertaken what President Obama might call a "reset" of the Russian political landscape. In fact, the prime minister's announcement Saturday that he would swap offices next year with the current president, Dmitry Medvedev, just clarifies an abiding reality: There is not, and since at least 2000 never has been, any power center in Moscow other than Mr. Putin, the former KGB operative-turned-authoritarian kleptocrat.
The Obama administration has been secretly working on a review of U.S. nuclear weapons in what officials say is part of the White House effort to make deeper cuts on strategic nuclear forces.
Police on Tuesday confirmed a link between Italian and Greek anarchists, saying the Italian group that sent parcel bombs to three Rome embassies was responding to an appeal from a Greek counterpart to step up attacks.
President Obama's top nuclear envoy warned Arab ambassadors Wednesday that they risk contributing to a failure of Middle East peace talks if they use an upcoming meeting in Vienna to pressure Israel over its nuclear program, diplomats said.
U.S. officials have convinced Israel that Iran needs at least a year to develop a nuclear weapon, dimming prospects of an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, The New York Times reports.

"From our standpoint, we think we have a very good argument that the current missile structure that we're looking at in Europe doesn't pose a threat to Russian strategic forces that would prevent them from reaching an agreement on further reductions," Mr. Samore told reporters in Moscow.
"I expect that there will be an announcement," said Gary Samore, who handles White House policy on weapons of mass destruction.
