Battered By Coronavirus And Sanctions Iran Still Can’t Be Trusted

Amid the Biden administration’s aggressive pursuit of nuclear treaty renewal with Iran, the rogue Islamic Republic is constantly giving America a massive headache. While they are asking Washington to lift sanctions to help them cope with their economic hardships, they seem intent on biting back the hand that is trying to feed them. Their blatant display of distrust and paranoia cannot be concealed any further as their actions reek of malicious intent.

The economy of Iran is totally battered at this point and its new president, hardliner Ebrahim Raisi, has no choice but to come up with a compromise with Joe Biden. The U.S. government is said to be interested in removing some embargos on Iran, in exchange, they would have to put a halt to the progress on their nuclear projects. 

Raisi, an ultraconservative human rights criminal who succeeded the more moderate president Hassan Rouhani, is a tricky leader to deal with. His extreme ideals put a ton of pressure on the talks and created difficulties in building trust between his nation, America and other western countries.

In a recent joint opinion article, government relations experts Dylan Gresik and Toby Dershowitz divulged some details on Iran’s alleged abduction of Masih Alinejad, an Iranian-American journalist living in Brooklyn, N.Y. 

The attempt to silence the Voice of America journalist is a testament to the lack of sincerity of Iran in negotiating with the United States, even as our government is putting in so much effort to help the struggling nation. Gresik and Dershowitz criticized Biden’s lack of resolve and Iran’s deceitfulness, amid looming diplomatic talks.

“Still, the Biden administration argues that re-entering the outdated nuclear accord – many of whose restrictions will soon sunset – would be followed by negotiations to address Iran’s other malign activities. Yet, Tehran has demanded the U.S. remove terrorism sanctions and release billions of dollars to the regime as part of the negotiations. Acquiescing will provide an injection of cash that no doubt will fuel future terrorism around the world,” Gresik and Dershowitz elaborated.

Eight months ago, the Iranian government imposed a ban on vaccines that were created by the United States and the United Kingdom. Today, the country is facing a devastating surge in COVID-19 cases, with a total of 4.2 million infections and 95,647 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic.

“It was an ideological approach to a health issue from the beginning. It was a gesture to show that the Islamic Republic won’t import medical products from a country it has been calling the Great Satan and its biggest enemy. But it has cost thousands of lives,” an Iranian psychiatrist hiding under the name Sarvenaz recently told ABC News.
