And yes, of course Obama always wanted regime change in Iran, too. This is something few people seem to accept - they think Obama was Iran's friend, failing to see the links alluded to in this article. And what about Clinton? Does anyone remember how much of a war hawk she was? Does anyone think the situation would have been better for Iran under her? No way.

Interesting observations, and I agree there is a big link between the conflict in Syria and moves against Iran. However, I also believe that "the empire" may not wait until Assad has fallen before going in hard against the mullahs.

The anti-Trump team is showing itself to be wildly ignorant of how the world works. Yes, they are allowed to protest, but if they really expect the leader of Britain's closest and strongest ally to be banned from visiting the UK they are complete morons. Hate Trump? I thought you guys were against hatred.

"today, the IR of Iran is not the Iran of 1953, and the brunt of American demands and actions will not be borne by Iran alone."

No, today, the IRI is proportionately as weak as the Iran of 1953. You think a few dated MiGs and some missiles make the modern Iranian military proportionately stronger than in the 1950s? So what if the Iranian army is big? If the army has to be used, Iran has already lost. I see no mention of the technological gains made by the West since that time. The Iranian military is two whole generations behind the West in technology. That's huge. And what about Iran's friends? There aren't any. None that count, anyway. Assad doesn't count because he can't assist Iran in any meaningful way, and Russia and China are NOT Iran's friends.

The truth is, Trump's Iran gambit is ALREADY paying off. The screws are being tightened on the mullahs, who have no answers except to blame America for everything because it lets them off the hook. The currency has completely tanked, heading the way of the Zimbabwe dollar if the mullahs are not careful. Even Chinese companies are backing away from Iran. Meanwhile, the Russians are pretending to care for Iran's welfare, while secretly celebrating Trump's move.

Israel is the most notorious human rights abuser, but it wouldn't have been able to violate every single international law for so long without the unconditional support of American politicians.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the first-time candidate who upset 10-term incumbent Rep. Joseph Crowley in last month’s Democratic primary, incorporated criticism of Israel’s actions into her campaign, condemning what she called a recent “massacre” in Gaza and calling on more Democrats to focus on the struggle of Palestinians.

As a result of the Trump Administration racist policies no group of people, beside the ones who are trying to seek asylum in the United States, are hurt more than the Iranian people in general and the Iranian-Americans in particular.
Yes it's been a shock to all, there's a time to be shocked by the unforeseen happenings and then there's also a time to shake off the blows and start acting.
All politics are local.

After helping China rise to its current position of power for decades, the US has finally woken up to the fact that it probably wasn't a good idea. Let's remember, the main reason for the rise of China is that Western manufacturers wanted to screw their workers and exploit cheap Asian labour. It wasn't for the benefit of China, but China benefited greatly from it, to the point that it now presents strategic concerns for the US, other world powers, and China's neighbours. Smart move!

If oil goes to $120 it won't be because of a loss of Iranian exports. More likely it will be market manipulation. Look at the charts. It was $60 in late 2014, long before the JCPOA, when sanctions were still on.

'Visiting Europe to seek economic guarantees, Rouhani lashed out at Israel in the Swiss capital Bern on Tuesday, saying Iran “sees the Zionist regime as an illegitimate regime”.'

He goes to Switzerland and sprouts this nonsense. More embarrassment for Iran.

'Rouhani’s remarks were “a source of pride”, wrote the general.'

Yeah, and we know where pride leads nations, don't we? Straight to hell.


'Some Iranians have interpreted Rouhani’s recent hawkish comments as meaning he could be open to blocking the Strait of Hormuz — a threat Tehran has brandished during past bouts of regional tension.'

Talk of blocking Hormuz is just more mainstream media hype. If the mullahs tried to block the strait, the entire Iranian navy would be destroyed in a single day. Idiots.


'“We must put to one side our differences because, at present, the national interest and the survival of the nation are at stake,” said an editorial.'

Ultimately, these fools are all loyal to the same stinking cause, and to themselves and their bank accounts. The survival of the nation is at stake BECAUSE of you morons.

Putin can't throw Iran under the bus, because he never had Iran's back to begin with.

“Russia has an interest to bleed Iran in Syria, to weaken Iran but not collapse Iran because it may lose the Assad regime, which is its major card,” said Sami Nader, head of the Levant Institute for Strategic Studies in Beirut. “They want Iran in check and under control.”

Not a bad assessment. Russia will support Iran's presence in Syria only if it serves its own interests. Otherwise, Iran is on its own.

To the mainstream media morons who deluded themselves into believing that Russia and Iran ever had a proper strategic partnership, they will imagine that Putin's failure to support or protect Iran as some great betrayal. It's all in their imagination.

Awesome article Sean; thanks for sharing!

"Being human is not about individual survival or escape. It’s a team sport. Whatever future humans have, it will be together." So true, and I'd like to add that the more one is willing to practice/experience multi-dimensional thinking (vs a 2 dimensional black/white approach), the richer the experience and ability to relate with others.
