In a move that invites parody if not outright ridicule, the left-oriented Politico blog this week went after former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for fighting Iran-sponsored terrorism too aggressively. Well, duh!
n a week that saw “Fake News” become the number one topic of debate among mainstream journalists, Politico decided to double down on stupidity and serve up a prime example of fake news. The Washington post dutifully echoed the false accusations to give the lie a cloak of respectability not bestowed by Politico.
Developments following the landmark nuclear deal struck between Tehran and the world powers prove that hopes for the recovery of Iran’s economy in a post-JCPOA era is false placed.
The economic crisis riddling Iran is a byproduct of the corruption ingrained in the structure of the fundamentalist regime ruling the country and the very foundations it has been established on. And this isn’t something that is going to change as a result of an international treaty or an alteration of the country’s political lineup.
Tehran has taken nearly full control over Baghdad thanks to the Obama Middle East Doctrine, blueprinted to deliver a series of incentives to Iran aimed at preventing the mullahs from walking away from the already flawed nuclear deal. One victim of such a failed policy has been the country of Iraq, as Iran gained enormous influence over it under President Barack Obama’s watch.
Independent Journal Review reported a very informative article by JOHN LEE about Iranian regime lobbying after US Presidential election. Iran believes that “The golden time of Obama is over”.
The article starts:
Without any great surprise, the Iran lobby has jumped into the post-election fray with both feet to simultaneously try to save the Iran nuclear deal and muddy the waters for the developing Trump administration’s policy towards the Iranian regime moving forward.
The problems facing the Iran lobby are wide and varied. On the one hand, it is faced with the proposed possibility that a Trump administration will rescind the nuclear agreement, modify it to link it to other conditions such as Iran’s support for terrorism, or re-impose sanctions the Obama administration had lifted in the hopes of cultivating “moderation” within the regime.
