Iran Is Already Declaring Victory Over U.S. As Nuclear Disarmament Talks Begin
Trump sanctioned Iran and played hardball with the middle eastern country. He undid deals that put America at a disadvantage. But now that we have a Liberal back in Office, we are likely about to give way too many concessions to get Iran to end its nuclear program. Iran knows this and claims it has beaten the United States, but really it's Biden that has beaten us with his buckling nature.
"Iranian government spokesman Ali Rabiei said Tuesday that his country's leaders will not sit down for talks with the Americans, including U.S.-Iran envoy Robert Malley. American diplomats, however, expect indirect communications through intermediaries. Rabiei said the negotiations, which will occur in Vienna, represent a victory over the United States and the former Trump administration's "maximum pressure" campaign on Iran, which included some of the most wide-ranging economic sanctions in history. The Iran spokesman predicted the Biden administration will have no choice but to lift these sanctions in the near future.
Iran's posturing is accompanied by increased nuclear work, moves likely meant to further pressure the Biden administration into granting concessions during the talks in Vienna. Iran's Atomic Energy Organization said Tuesday that it is ready to unveil "133 new nuclear achievements," including "quantum, enrichment, heavy water, radiopharmaceuticals, [and] lasers," according to state-controlled press."
"Trump following his withdrawal [from the Iran Deal] imposed a maximum pressure campaign of sanctions on Iran, which Tehran responded to by repeatedly violating the terms of the nuclear agreement.
The nuclear deal specifically places limits on Iran’s nuclear activities to lengthen the amount of time the country would need to develop nuclear weapons, though Tehran has continued to argue that its nuclear development activities are solely for peaceful purposes."
So we will see how much Biden has to give away to make this denuclearization deal possible. If Trump had won we would likely see Iran buckling in the next few years, but with Biden leading us, we are seen as weak.
