Washington’s decades-long obsessive hostility toward Iran has produced toxic results. It’s apparent that the European allies increasingly chafe at that policy and want a change. Until now, the close U.S. ties with Saudi Arabia inhibited any chance of a meaningful policy change, despite European wishes for a more balanced stance toward Iran.
Today’s ongoing sanctions against Iran cannot be understood in their full weight and international ramifications without this historical background.
It is clear that the current manoeuvres against Iran are not on behalf of anyone’s “security” but rather an attempt to force Iran to finally bend the knee and be reduced to a state of complete dependence.
Today we are witnessing the centennial repetition of history, with new fools repeating old mistakes and expecting different results.
