It is possible to summarize the entire achievements of the Iranian regime in the past 40 years in bloody suppression, adventurism in the Middle East and relentless attempts for achieving nuclear weapons, sanctions and following high-prices, looting people’s assets, anti-West propaganda, exporting of revolution, and imposing huge costs on the country.
However, the question is what has prevented the regime’s collapse until now?
In February 1979, when the mullahs took the power in Iran and insisted on the exporting of revolution, none thought that this idea will shortly become the foremost element for countless crises and insecurity in the Middle East. However, the mullahs’ aggressive approach influenced the political space of neighboring countries and paved the way for the most critical incidents.
At the time, the United States heightened its presence in the region to deter the regime from achieving its regional goals. Then-U.S. administration constructed its strategy based on removing the pro-Iran governments and isolating Tehran. Of course, policymakers were hoping to rein in the Islamic Republic and eventually boost the “moderate” forces inside the regime to wane expected threats of the new version of fundamentalism. However, this policy that is known as appeasement remained fruitless against authoritarian ruling systems since World War II.
The Iranian regime, in the opposite, resorted to the cultural potential that circulated among regional peoples. In this context, Iranian authorities widened their cultural influence by holding Islamic ceremonies such as ‘Arbaeen’ procession. No doubt, the U.S., unaware of the cultural proximity in the region, brought significant impacts on the benefit of the ayatollahs’ foreign policies in the Middle East.
Nonetheless, exporting terrorism under the pretext of “the revolution” could guarantee the Iranian regime’s survival so far, but how? And why have the U.S. and its allies, despite their excessive military power, appeased Tehran’s malign behavior in the region. Notably, the Iranian regime has a notorious background in the bombing and killing of foreign civilians and troops in Lebanon, Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia. However, Iranian officials frequently brag about their “regional power” with absolute immunity from being held accountable.
