Iran's Eruptive And Irreversible Situation: A Look At Confrontations Over Iran Nuclear Deal Deadline
Abdolrahman Mahabadi, political writer and analyst
As President Trump’s May-12 deadline for fixing Iran nuclear deal gets closer, speculations about the fate of the deal are on the rise, with some predicting that the United States will walk away from the deal and some saying otherwise.
Meanwhile, the Iranian regime and its associated lobbies seek to push the idea that the US withdrawal from the deal will spark a new war in the Middle East, thus trying to scare public opinion of such a decision.
Fundamental to an accurate analysis of the situation, however, is that we have a true understanding of the nature of the Iranian regime, which has just entered its 40th year. Without an exact understanding, it won’t be possible to describe what happens when the deadline is over.
Coming to power with the help of a reactionary-colonial political objective, the Iranian regime took advantage of people’s religious tendencies from the very beginning, laying the foundation of its formation and survival by adopting an expansionist policy through waging wars.
Subdued by the strategy the newly arrived Iranian regime had deployed, many in the region first adopted a soft policy to deal with the regime, a policy that only emboldened the regime and led to its increased interventions in the domestic affairs of regional countries throughout the coming years, with Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Lebanon as bitter realities of the current era being the most obvious examples in this regard.
