The prospects for JCPOA in light of US-Iran historical distrust
By: Mohammed Khaku
There is the clash of perceptions. The United States is the world’s imperialist power and has assumed the right not only to judge other nations but also to destroy those it considers “rogue states.”
Iranians see the world quite differently. Their country has existed for thousands of years and has made enormous contributions to the world. Like other ancient nations, it has risen and fallen time and again. Its leaders find it ridiculous that the United States, which they see as an arrogant new power already entering into a period of decline after the numerous defeats from Vietnam to Afghanistan should lecture a civilized country of over 3000 years.
U.S. and Israeli interests in Iran diplomacy are irreconcilable. Biden’s efforts have failed because he has chosen to pursue Israeli interests than the USA. Moreover, Biden’s efforts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), has failed because its goal is to appease Israel and the Bedouin kingdom of Saudi Arabia rather than the American interest.
Israel and many Arab countries worry of U.S.-Iranian rapprochement and lifting sanctions will likely tilt the regional balance of power in Iran’s favor. Iran is in no hurry to return to the table because it has not violated the JCPOA agreement. Moreover, why would Iran return back to JCPOA when there is no lifting of the Sanctions.
Why would Iran not develop nuclear capabilities when Israel seeks a “guarantee” that Washington will not seek to restrain their sabotage campaign or attack Iran even if the JCPOA is restored?
Obama’s deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes publicly implored Biden not to repeat this mistake: “I plead with [Biden],” he said on the Pod Save America podcast. “Do not think there is any ounce of good faith that will be coming your way from Bibi Netanyahu, from MBS, and from the Tom Cottons of this world.
Iran’s only requirement to revive the JCPOA in its original, which was supported by the UN Security Council, is for lifting the sanctions. That’s not much to ask. These people in black suits negotiating in Geneva are Zionist Mafia who has no interest in a deal. They’ve never had an interest in a deal. They are imperialists, whose only interest is to strangle Iran.
The Iran phobia rectal parasite is residing in the “arses” of the countries including US, UK, Israel and Saudi Arabia. Iran should develop its strategic nuclear deterrence as well as intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) as a deterrence.
The US and the European are evil regimes, they are not benign democracies. They want to deprive people of Venezuela, Iran, Cuba, Yemen, Libya, and Syria of food, medicines and cause maximum pain. Biden has chosen to issue military threats to Iran and listen to Israel, UAE and Saudi instead of lifting sanctions as promised during his campaign. This is very counterproductive.
