“European countries come (to Tehran) and say we want to negotiate with Iran over its presence in the region,” Khamenei said, according to Reuters. “It is none of your business. It is our region. Why are you here?”
Indeed, the U.S. foreign policy roadmap to fix the deal is straightforward:
But as history teaches us, the theocracy in Iran will not give up until its existence is at serious risk.
President Obama’s eight years of passive policy towards Iran and North Korea allowed both dictatorships to develop their capabilities to challenge the global security.
But as the U.S. shifts to a firmer policy towards North Korea, the dictator has signaled his readiness to compromise with the international community. However, Khamenei is more perilous than Kim Jong-Un. Even if the theocracy has yet to acquire nuclear weapons.
The French foreign minister returning empty-handed from his latest visit to Tehran demonstrates there is no realistic chance to persuade the Iranian regime to end its destructive role in the Middle East. This failure highlights the needs to form an Arab-West military alliance to expel the IRGC and its proxies from the region.
Arriving at a key strategy to successfully restrict the regime requires to first understand why the IRGC has the upper hand on the ground.
In fact, the Iranian regime controls and funds a variety of armed groupsand political parties in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Yemen.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis noted, “We have worrisome evidence that Iran is trying to influence — using money — the Iraqi elections. That money is being used to sway candidates, to sway votes.”
In Yemen, the Iranian regime is threatening Saudi Arabia through military support for the Houthis who launch IRGC-supplied missiles supplied targeting the Saudi capital.
Now Saudi Arabia, along with other Arab countries, seek to persuade the West to adopt a firm and realistic policy towards the Iranian regime’s destabilizing activities across the region.
Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman is currently on a diplomatic tour. During his recent Cairo visit, he described Iranian regime and its hardline Islamic groups as a ”triangle of evil.”
Bin Salman looks to establish strong cooperation between the Arab World and the West to balance the power in the region.
During a visit to London, the crown prince and the British prime minister agreed to cooperate on issues of common interests including efforts to disarm Hezbollah in Lebanon. This is further evidence Hezbollah has created a political crisis in Lebanon in favor of the IRGC.
Now, we should wait for the U.K. to calibrate its Iran nuclear deal policy accordingly.
In the third leg of the diplomatic tour, Trump will welcome Bin Salman in Washington on Tuesday. Experts believe this set of problems will be the focus of discussions between Trump and the Saudi new leader — but the first crucial step to solve crises in the region is to scrap the Iran nuclear deal.
