In the topsy-turvy world of Middle East politics, where strategic alliances and national interests are mere jargons in speeches, something very strange might be forming.

Veteran international journalist, Amir Taheri puts it thusly:

“These days something strange is happening with regard to Iran. You might say: so what? Strange things have been happening with regard to Iran ever since the mullahs seized power in 1979.

Alright, but what is happening now may merit closer attention because it represents an unprecedented convergence between the thinking of the Trump administration in Washington, on the one hand, and that of one of the factions involved in the power struggle in Tehran, on the other.

…. As Trump ponders his Iran policy, he should remember that nothing about Iran is as simple as the "New York Boys" claim. They sold Obama a bill of goods. Trump, the "dealmaker," shouldn't buy the same thing.”

In other words; it seems the same nonsense about reformability of a faction of the warmongering, international terror sponsoring , Uber America/Israel loathing Islamist fascists, which has been bough by successive U.S. administrations, is still at play, or at least being considered by Trump.

Is it for the umpteenth time, déjà vu all over again?



Sanction works, U.S. House get to it.

Ps, lets not forget what Bob Gates, the  former CIA and Secretary of Defense, who, in one way or another,  from day one of Islamist fascists coming to power in Iran has been involved in the highest levels has said about the “reformist” bunch in the Islamist fascists:

“I have been involved in the search for the elusive Iranian moderate for 30 years. (Laughter.) Every administration since [1979] has reached out to the Iranians in one way or another and all have failed. Some have gotten into deep trouble associated with their failures, but the reality is the Iranian leadership has been consistently unyielding over a very long period of time in response to repeated overtures from the United States about having a different and better kind of relationship.”
