This is how Washington wants the Iran nuclear agreement, and does not want to confront the Revolutionary Guards!

There is only one issue pending in the Vienna negotiations between Iran and the United States, which is the issue of classifying the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization, and this was reiterated by sources in Washington, DC, to and, and indicated that the negotiations are suspended at this point. Point three months ago.

A US State Department spokesman described the negotiations as “difficult.” He added, “We are working on several issues, including the classification of foreign terrorist organizations,” but he refused to discuss the details, and said, “We will not respond to statements about any sanctions that we will be ready to lift as part of a mutual return to the full implementation of the nuclear agreement.”

Nuclear is dangerous

It is clear that the US President’s administration conducts its policy based on the principle that nuclear weapons are an existential threat, and considers that “enrichment of uranium to 90% is a major escalation and a major provocative act,” according to the Foreign Ministry spokesman. He added that if Iran decided to enrich to military levels, “this would be a threat to global security and security, and that Iran’s doing so would not give it a source of strength, but rather would cause a crisis.”

But the Iranians are walking with the United States and the world on the brink of the abyss without raising the level of enrichment, and the crisis has not occurred, but the two sides are seeking to reach an agreement, and US President Joe Biden has the power to decide, and he can at any time withdraw the designation of the Revolutionary Guards from the list of “foreign terrorist organizations.” With this, the situation will return to what it was in 2015, and it is based on the basis of “neither nuclear nor confrontation.”

US President Joe Biden

only penalties

Critics of the administration of the current US president point out that Iran’s problem includes its missile program, guerrillas, and Iran’s arming of its militias in the Arab world, in addition to its sponsorship of terrorism.

The Biden administration does not deny these Iranian problems, and every current official and every spokesperson in the Biden administration seeks to repeat this sentence in writing and saying: “In the event of any return to the nuclear agreement, the United States maintains effective means to address these issues, and will use them forcefully, especially to confront the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.” .

But when we talk to officials in the US administration, we understand to a large extent what this administration means and the limits it has set for itself “to confront the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.”

During speaking to US government sources, it is possible to get the impression that their words about confronting the actions of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard carry “non-military meanings.” and sources in the US government confirmed that the Biden administration is talking about implementing sanctions. The current US administration, and the strictness of the application of secondary sanctions.

A Foreign Ministry spokesman told and that “out of the 107 classifications related to Iran under this administration, 86 are directed against the Iranian Revolutionary Guard,” and indicated that the Revolutionary Guard is still classified by various decisions, including “Impose sanctions according to counter-terrorism authorities, and he is designated as a global terrorist.”

No plans for confrontation

It is very possible to say that the Biden administration wants to say that removing the name of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard from a specific list, which is the list of foreign terrorist organizations, is a matter of protocol, and sanctions will remain imposed by virtue of different laws, but officials in the US administration are not close in any way to talking about confronting Iranian behavior by force. Rather, they return to talking about imposing sanctions to prevent the progress of the Iranian missile program and to prevent Iran from deploying missiles and drones in the Middle East.

One of the sources of “” and “” indicated that the Iranian missile program and the spread of weapons and marches is undoubtedly dangerous, and with the increase in their numbers as the Iranians do by handing them over to their militias, the danger increases, but he did not refer to a specific US program to confront this escalating danger.

One of the sources in Washington said that the American forces deployed in the Middle East are there to respond if circumstances require, but they are not there as a reformer among the children in the school playground.



Soldiers for crisis only

The American military explain the mission of their forces in the region and say that it is to protect international waters and defend American interests, so we understand that the American forces present in the Arabian Sea or in the waters of the Arabian Gulf carry out their periodic missions, but they do not seek in any way to expand their mission in the face of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Rather, he limited it to confronting direct provocations by the Revolutionary Guards, as happened before in the Gulf waters or the Arabian Sea.

It is correct to say that the US forces have worked during the past years to seize boats smuggling weapons and drugs from Iran to Yemen and the rest of the Arab countries, but they did not seek to impose strict measures to prevent the Iranians from delivering thousands of tons of weapons, ammunition, drones and missile technology to the Houthis in Yemen.

The matter is not much different with the American military deployment in Iraq and Syria, where the current administration wants to limit their mission to preventing the return of ISIS, and Washington sources confirm that the mission in Syria is focused on preventing the infiltration of extremist elements from al-Hol camp, and the mission in Iraq is limited to training and assisting the Iraqi regular forces. They assert that this “mission order” is present and specific.

On the other hand, they say that the American soldiers do not have a mandate from the American president to confront the Revolutionary Guards and the militias affiliated with Iran, and they say, “This is not part of the mission.”

“…ISIS tanks”

It seems unusual, especially since US forces are deployed in northeastern Syria and in the Al-Tanf region, north of the Jordanian-Iraqi-Syrian border, and Iranian arms convoys cross the international road linking Iran to Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.

One of them told and “These are not ISIS tanks.”

As for Iran’s support for its militias and the threat these militias threaten the security of neighboring countries and destabilize the authority of their governments, as in Iraq and Lebanon, the impression left by the Biden government indicates that it is not concerned with this problem, and is not even convinced that these militias follow the principle of Wilayat al-Faqih.
