In recent years the weaknesses of Iran’s regime have become more transparent every day. From its weakness in the economy to lose its dominance in the country facing many huge protests which increased this weakness, to its international isolation, which is derived from its malign activities in the region, its support from the global terrorism and dictatorships sharing the same behavior with them.
The regime’s struggle to cover up this weakness with senseless activities like its missile and nuclear program not only does not help but increased the frustration of the people because of wasting their resources in such projects and increased the international will to counter the regime and preventing it from becoming a nuclear power.
Analyzing these weaknesses, it can be seen in the nuclear deal with world powers known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The regime hopes that the new US government after the Trump administration would accept the regime’s requests and would return to the 2015 JCPOA without and precautions and new requests, but this did not happen.
As reported by many of the regime’s outlets and websites the state-run website Asr-e-Iran on July 29, 2021, wrote: “The United States has warned that nuclear talks with Iran to revive the JCPOA will not continue indefinitely. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said in a statement in Kuwait yesterday (Thursday) that talks with Iran could not and should not continue indefinitely.
“Pointing out that now is the time for Tehran to decide, the senior US diplomat added: ” We’re committed to diplomacy, the ball remains in Iran’s court.”
Then this media acknowledged that the US did not accept the regime’s avarice and added: “According to a recent statement by Iran’s representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency, US diplomats in the last six rounds of the Vienna talks have refused to lift more than 500 sanctions against various Iranian individuals and entities.”
Frustrated about a JCPOA+, it continued: “According to Kazem Gharib Abadi, Iran’s representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency, during the Vienna talks, the Americans insisted on including issues outside the scope of the Iranian nuclear issue and they have insisted on adding a clause on negotiations on regional issues to the agreement to revive the JCPOA.
“At the same time, Washington has stressed that the United States will wait for the establishment of the government of Iranian President-elect Ibrahim Raisi to continue the Vienna talks, but Washington limits the opportunity for Vienna talks to revive the JCPOA and there will be no further concessions from Washington.”
The AXIOS website interviewed a US official about Washington’s position, writing:
“The official stressed that the window for reaching a deal won’t be open for much longer, and the Iranians should return to the table quickly. “We also hope they don’t think they will get more than the previous government because they are tougher. It’s not about being tougher, it’s about fully implementing the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal. The U.S. position will not change, and the Iranians will not be able to reinvent the nuclear deal or be in a situation where they do less, and we do more.” (AXIOS, July 28, 2021)
Kazem Gharib Abadi in another interview about the defeat of the negotiations said: “The Americans tied the whole understanding to the acceptance of future talks on regional issues, which is completely irrelevant and harmful to the subject of negotiations. The lifting of some sanctions, as well as the removal of the name of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from the list of terrorist groups, was directly conditional on the acceptance of this clause.
“The Americans refused to guarantee in the negotiations that they would not repeat the same behavior of the previous administration in the face of the nuclear deal, and even refused to lift sanctions against more than 500 individuals and entities – who were sanctioned by the Trump administration on non-nuclear grounds. They also did not repeal the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).”
But that’s not all. The situation for the regime is getting so bad that state TV was forced to admit that they no longer have the opportunity for lobbying the US government and are losing this aiding political ground.
The state TV Channel Two on July 28 reported: “Now you see a week among the US senators, some of them are writing letters. Many of them are writing letters to Mr. Biden that whatever agreement you make with Iran when we come to power, we will destroy all these agreements.
“You do not need to stand until 2024 for the next election in the United States. Next year you have the congressional election 2022 and the gap between Democrats and Republicans in the US Senate is one vote, one seat. And the US Senate looks set to fall to Republicans next year.
“Now that the US Senate is in the hands of the Democrats, the chairman of their foreign policy commission is Mr. Bob Menendez, who was a speaker at the hypocrites’ (MEK/PMOI) meeting last week.
“This means that this democrat, who is now influential in US policy towards Iran because of the role that the US Congress has in foreign policy, is the speaker of this group of hypocrites.”
Finally, a regime expert in international affairs Mohammad Jamshidi pointed to the main reason for the regime’s weakness and said:
“The 2009 sedition (2009 protests) that took place, after which we had the resolution of 1929 and the heavy unilateral sanctions of the United States. Haj Qasem Soleimani was martyred because of the riots of November 2019. When the other side sees that you are weak and confused, he moves towards hitting more.”
