Electing ANY Democrat-POTUS Empowers Iran’s Intent to Destroy Israel – Part III

The JCPOA [a.k.a. “Iran-Nuke Capitulation-Act”]—favored by Biden and opposed by Trump—legitimized Iran acquiring the Bomb.

It continues to be vital to refute pro-Biden essays such as that composed on this site by fellow-Philadelphian Burt Siegel, for their progressive narrative threatens to unleash the mullahs that President Trump has labored to rebuff; the resulting danger to Israel and America would yield a nuclear Tehran—as I have repeatedly warned— threatening what Trump has painstakingly achieved.

The initial essay quoted in-toto from the websites of Biden and Trump, addressing both what has been asserted and (tellingly) what has been ignored; exemplifying their contrast was recognition that Biden told 560 Jewish Dems that Israeli annexation efforts “will choke off any hope for peace,” followed by a brief discussion of how Trump recognizes the potency of the Iran-Venezuela alliance.

The {second} essay focused on Iran’s ongoing threat to go-nuclear by stressing how Trump has squeezed Tehran economically while the IAEA continues documenting Iran’s increasingly bold breaches of the JCPOA; this reinforced the view that Biden must not be permitted to reverse the progress made against Iran’s hegemony.

This essay summarizes its nefarious global activities as well as the way it has handled domestic challenges, again relying heavily upon hyperlinks to dramatize how vital it is that Trump be supported; most every article by the JPost’s Seth Frantzman is supportive of these concerns and, thus, they are asterisked{*}.

America’s Secretary of State Pompeo has warned that Iran is ‘Fomenting Terror’ despite the Covid-19 Pandemic; careful monitoring continues resulting, for example in the U.S. having blacklisted a Chinese logistics firm over business with Iran’s airline and HSBC being implicated in Iran malfeasance.

After Trump vetoed a measure giving Congress final voice on military action against Iran, the U.S. seized millions and disrupted purchase of an oil tanker in a move targeting Iran’s elite IRGC-Qods force; yet, despite rising tensions, Trump/Pompeo weren’t too busy to notice Iran’s interest in a “prisoner” swap, although it’s unclear whether anything is being negotiated because Iran complained Trump has yet to respond to its entreaties.

South of the border, Iran uses cultural centers to expand its influence in Latin America and, as previously detailed, provides gasoline for Venezuela’s Maduro incessantly; the Monroe Doctrine remains moribund.

Iran is saber-rattling in the Persian Gulf despite coronavirus woes, after Khamenei ordered Iran’s guards to make Persian Gulf islands habitable; this prompted General Salami to order his ships to fire on the ‘Terrorist’ U.S. Navy if ‘Threatened’ and Trump to order our Navy to ‘destroy‘ gunboats ‘harassing’ warships.

As a result of this standoff, the U.S. issued a global maritime advisory warning of Iran’s ‘deceptions‘ and naval provocations; subsequently, the U.S. told Gulf mariners to stay clear of Iran’s warships.

After an Iranian warship was hit by missile accidentally, killing 19 sailors, it was suggested that Iran’s navy is dying a slow death; in this regard, it appears Iran has an evolving approach to asymmetric naval warfare.

Syria is Iran’s new frontline* with America, along with the Gulf; its ongoing civil war has prompted repeated meetings of America’s adversaries (Russia, Turkey and Iran … a.k.a. Czarists, Ottomans and Persians) who have, thus far, proven unable to divvy up the battleground.

This may be due to a love-hate* Russia-Iran relationship in Syria, but Russia has granted Iran access to the Syrian Hmeimim Air Base; as a result, Iran may or may not be retreating* out of Syria amid the pandemic, as Israeli strikes have battered its forces (“mowing the lawn”).

In any case, Iran is shipping a large quantity of crude oil to Syria and is building a large weapons facility in Syria, ignoring the ‘tragedy‘ that beckons in Syria from virus (particularly in Kurdistan, the NE-section).

Saudi Arabia remains targeted by Iran, even as Trump feels it’ remove its Patriot missile batteries; again necessitating aggressive monitoring, it appears Iran is increasingly promoting an antisemitic Houthi leader from Yemen.

Iran can’t seem to avoid meddling with its contiguous neighbors, as Iran was forced to change tack in Iraqi politics after its mastermind’s assassination; although Iranian-backed militias* are playing a key role in Anbar against ISIS, a rift* has emerged among pro-Iranian militias in Iraq as a new leader tries to steer Iraq through the U.S.-Iran rivalry. And Afghanistan is investigating claims migrants were tortured and drowned by  ‘laughing’ Iranian border guards.

After (Iran-funded) Hezbollah’s Nasrallah warned again of a ‘great war‘ on all fronts with Israel, he permitted Lebanon to be rescued by the West while Israel spared Hezbollah fighters to avert a war; support for these Islamists appears to be slipping in Europe, for Iran warned Germany of ‘consequences’ after Germany outlawed all Hezbollah activities (including banning its political wing),

The Iranian-Israeli conflict has gone online with the latest salvos from both sides targeting critical infrastructure; Iran used US servers in a cyberattack on Israeli water facilities while Israel hacked an Iranian port. Iranian intelligence is now drawing from both Shi’ite and Sunni Palestinian Arabs, now that Abbas has “gifted” Hamas to Iran.

Domestically, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has leveraged the pandemic to strengthen its grip on the country and Iran has leveraged oil to court other U.S. rivals; although Iran-backed groups in Lebanon and Iraq have sought public support through the coronavirus fight, Iranian dissidents have joined Trump when claiming the regime should not receive IMF Covod-19 aid.

Illustrating the close coordination among members of the “Evil Empire,” the U.S. State Department reported that China, Russia and Iran launched a disinformation campaign blaming America for Covid-19 and, notably, the NYTimes reported that China had arrested five former Huawei employees for having discussed the tech giant’s Iranian sales in a chat group; yet, the pandemic* didn’t stop Iran from marking Qods day 2020 with antisemitism, blood libels, and calls for the destruction of Israel.

While some hope this is the twilight of the Iranian revolution due, in particular, to wasteful spending, others lament the end of Iran’s hopeless reformist movement; in any case, absent regime change, Putin is betting on a “horse” that has lost potency as Trump incessantly hits Tehran’s Terror Allies.

As a counterpoint, Trump is sanctioning Iran’s Interior Minister and senior law enforcement officials in connection with serious human rights abuses; after Iran extended the temporary release of a British-Iranian woman, the U.S. called for Tehran to release two Iranian college students arrested during the pandemic.

It’s necessary, finally, to convey glitches that must be overcome, as Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook complained America shouldn’t fund a ‘Voice of the Mullahs’ in Iran; also, a major US influence on Iranians has been sidelined by anti-Trump bias, illustrating again why Trump will need a second term to uproot the Deep State from not only the State Department, but also from other governmental entities [such as the NIH, an issue that is to be explored in the future].

I have also written about medical politics [particularly Vaping and ObamaDon'tCare] and have attempted to articulate the action-item [that I have often pursued absent support]. Aggressively followed is the discipline of capturing and then addressing all reputable perspectives; the reader is thereby maximally "armed" to critique the output.
