INU - Tensions appear to be escalating between Iran and several of its traditional adversaries, including those with which relations had supposedly improved in recent years. In the case of nations like Turkey, the Islamic Republic has pursued practical economic dealings in spite of the implicit tensions created, for instance, by their backing of opposing factions in the Syrian Civil War. Naturally, the Iranians have also sought increased economic contacts with Europe in the wake of the Iran nuclear deal, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. The agreement has also opened up some prospects with US companies, but Tehran’s longstanding anti-Western rhetoric has not moderated during this time.

It has been noted frequently at Iran News Update that the Iran regime’s anti-American rhetoric only seemed to intensify in the wake of the nuclear agreement that was spearheaded by President Obama. Verbal rhetoric was sometimes backed up by action, as in the case of the several ballistic missile launches that were carried out in the months following the completion of nuclear negotiations. Now that rhetoric and those behaviors have continued into the era of the Trump administration, but the change in American leadership has contributed to the expectation of a much stronger Western response to these activities.

The new  sanctions put on Iran by the Trump White House in response to their January 29th ballistic missile test brings hope that this will be a sign to the regime to curb, and eventually end, their support for global terror, testing of ballistic missiles, and the ongoing domestic problems.

The Iranian regime describes the years of the Obama administration as the “golden era”, and took advantage of it  to extend its position across the Middle East. The situations in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon are proof.
