The United States is still waiting for the Iranians to complete negotiations on a return to the nuclear deal. Because Tehran is not about to give up its intransigence, Washington will wait a long time, or until the Iranians find another opportunity to blackmail the US administration and the international community behind it.
In this regard, perhaps the United States should read Persian history well and know how the enemy thinks they are achieving their objectives through political deception, which the Persians have worked with throughout their imperial history of about 3,000 years ago, and they’ve walked to the present state. of the mullahs, which is part of its political literature.
Going back in history when they began their expansion into the ancient world, they worked to cause unrest in accordance with the divide and rule principle, something they were the first to practice politically.
As a result, the empire continued to expand until the year 336 BC when war broke out between Alexander the Great and the Persian Dara. It was the beginning of the demise of the great empire.
After about 900 years, the Persians returned to expand into the Arab Quarter, but were defeated in the First Battle of Qadisiyah, as well as in Dhi Qar at the hands of Al-Mundhir Al-Numan. It was known as the Battle of the Chains, because Ormuz ordered his soldiers to tie themselves up with chains for fear of escaping, but he was defeated by Khalid bin Al-Walid.
When the Muslims conquered Persia, its citizens entered the new religion. Nevertheless, they did not abandon their expansionist and arrogant culture. They worked to distinguish themselves as descendants of Cyrus. This trend emerged during the celebration of the Shah of Iran Muhammad Reza Pahlavi in 1971, to mark the 2,500th anniversary of the establishment of the Kingdom of Persia.
The current mullahs’ regime has revived this trend with the slogan “exporting the revolution”. To achieve his goal, he has been working for 40 years using two methods: expansion by inciting sectarian fanaticism, and by sowing discord between societies, especially Arabs, and by seeking to possess weapons of mass destruction by returning to the military project. of the Shah which began in 1957. and was suspended in the early years of the revolution. However, the project was taken up by Khomeini during the Iran-Iraq war in order to obtain an atomic bomb to balance his power with Iraq, especially after the defeats suffered by his army at the start of the eight-year war.
The desire grew further after sanctions were imposed by the international community on Tehran when its intelligence community carried out a series of terrorist operations in a number of countries, in addition to the establishment of militias by power of attorney in several Arab countries.
Today, Washington is awaiting Tehran’s return to the Vienna negotiations. He ignored the serious warnings about the consequences of the revival of the sectarian terrorist beast directed against him by most Arab countries and Israel. Tehran is continuing its military nuclear project and developing ballistic missiles capable of bombarding Europe.
In such a political atmosphere, it seems Washington has abandoned its fight against Tehran. The threat to its interests and allied countries in the region is increasing day by day, forcing the Gulf states, moderate Arab states and the Israeli alliance to face the Iranian threat that threatens the security and peace of the country. Middle East.
Otherwise, the countries of the region will turn into dominoes. When the Iranian coin falls on one of them, the rest will fall successively.
