    From an isolated Iran to an isolated U.S.

    For years, suspicions were raised over the size of Iran’s extensive nuclear energy program and whether this suggested nuclear weapon intentions along with its peaceful use of nuclear energy. As a result, Iran was subject to economic sanctions and isolation from the international community.

    Iran as the nuclear ‘other’

    Ever wonder why U.S. President Donald Trump called the Iran nuclear deal the “worst deal ever” for America? It would be a remote proposition to say that the deal has not met its claim to being a good non-proliferation agreement. The thing about the deal that stings Trump and his fellows may be that it came across the idea they wanted Iran to represent.

    U.S. failure in confrontation with Iran

    TEHRAN _ The silence of the U.S. Congress on a nuclear deal with Iran shows that Washington has been confused about how it faces the deal. This confusion has intensified over the past weeks. However, over the next ten days, it seems that the U.S. Congress has announced its final deal on a nuclear deal. Some analysts believe that Congress intends to put more red lines on it, while maintaining a nuclear deal. This is despite the fact that the nuclear deal with Iran can not be changed fundamentally! This is something that most international actors are focusing on.

    The wrong way to address Iran’s missile program

    In remarks on Oct. 13 when decertifying Iranian compliance with the July 2015 nuclear deal, U.S. President Donald Trump called on Congress to address the “near total silence on Iran’s missile program” and prevent it from “developing an intercontinental ballistic missile.” Congress has since floated bills that would not only impose further sanctions on Iran for its missiles, but would also condition America’s commitment to the nuclear deal on Iran’s missile policies.

    Five Points on Western Missile Policy toward Iran

    In recent weeks, we have witnessed Western political and media propaganda against our country's missile power. This trend has intensified after the defeat of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, which is considered to be a defeat of the West in the region. Donald Trump, the U.S. President, in his controversial speech against the nuclear deal, also called for the inclusion of Iran's missile capability as a prerequisite for maintaining the nuclear deal by the United States. On the other hand, French President Emanuel Macron has repeatedly expressed concern over our country's missile power over the past few days. Macron has called for talks with Iran on this issue. It's obvious that there exists cooperation among Western officials in opposition to Iran's missile program. There are some points that need to be addressed in this regard:

    A reflection on Johnson's trip to America

    TEHRAN _ Measuring the ratio of "strategy" and "tactics" is one of the main concerns in the field of international relations. In a simple definition, a strategy is a long-term plan that is designed and implemented to achieve a specific goal, while tactics contain details of strategic decisions. In other words, a tactic is the decision and approach, and even in some cases, the tool used to realize a strategy.

    Motives behind Trump’s systematic unilateral decisions

    President Trump’s approach cannot be understood in isolation as a specifically anti-Iranian or anti-nuclear project.  Instead it forms part of a broader objective that views the thrust of U.S. multilateralism over the last several decades (including a broad range of treaties and other agreements of prior Democratic and Republican Administrations) as inimical in approach to U.S. interests as understood by the current U.S. Administration and other leaders in power.
