What is Trump betting on?

Certainly, Trump can't understand why Iran, people and government, rejects to negotiate with him, even though he has recently made an explicit call to this effect. During the past two years, he also made eleven attempts to negotiate, but the Iranians refused as their President, Mr. Rouhani, revealed.

After using sanctions and siege, reviewing the military force and making threats and intimidation, the US President believes he could get into negotiations that satisfy his desires and please Zionists, fancying  that these negotiations could have a serious effect and end the intensity of Iranian rejection and drives them to exploit what appears to be a golden opportunity provided by Trump to the Iranians.

Obviously, what Trump is trying hard, using the policy of stick and carrot, is to reach a bilateral nuclear understanding in which Iran gives up nuclear technology, especially that the US withdrawal from the nuclear agreement did not lead to its collapse, nor to the withdrawal of any other party including Iran, which has held on to it. The rights and obligations that Iran has gained from the nuclear agreement aroused the anger of the Zionists, who consider the agreement will enable Tehran to achieve its military nuclear objectives, so they launched their campaign against the agreement, and they were the main instigator to make the US withdraw from it.

Trump knows very well that for almost forty years the United States has tried every large and soft means of subjugating the Islamic Republic, changing its anti-imperialist and Zionist regime, but Iran has thwarted all the American conspiracies that have targeted it and emerged stronger and more adherence to its resistant, ideological and political approach. Trump's expectations will go to the ways of the winds as his predecessors failed to achieve anything.

 Some believe that Trump's sweeping pressure on Iran and its harsh punitive measures have put the Iranians in a great predicament that they will not succeed in getting out of this time unless they reach an agreement with the US President and listen to his terms. But this view is arbitrary and naive, because it does not weigh or take into account the enormous experience that the Iranians accumulated in facing this kind of challenge, aside from the fact that the Iranian popular discontent with America has increased and lost confidence in it, in addition to the growing strength of the anti-American camp which Iran is one of its main forces.

All these factors simply mean that Iran is not in a position to bow to any American dictates whatever Trump's carrot and stick size are, nor even to negotiate with him as long as he has no political and moral credibility qualify him for that.

So, what is this man betting on, who cannot see the region except with the eyes of the Zionists?!

This question is really puzzling, the bet on US military force is not logical, the US and Israel will not be able to bear the consequences of any US aggression on Iran. Either bet on changing Iran's initial position is a kind of the sever political and strategic shortcoming that is explained by the inability of Trump's mentality to understand that the political positions of some countries such as Iran are not goods to be bought and sold, and not deals to be concluded under intimidation and attraction.

It is difficult for a man of American deals to understand that he is dealing with a state of political and strategic constants that are inseparable from its cultural and moral authority, in addition, that Iran masters the art of politics and diplomacy to the extent that Trump himself appears before it to be a failed student with no future.

Washington and Its Wars Against Humanity

The United States has waged wars against nations and peoples by allegations of spreading "democracy", "fighting terrorism", "defending" the peoples’ rights and for "humanitarian" reasons, but the facts prove the opposite of its allegations.

The "democracy" and the defense of the people and humanity are not the concerns of the United States at all except insofar as it used them as pretexts to its dirty wars to impose its hegemony, plunder the resources and wealth of others, shed more of their blood, and destroy their state and infrastructure completely. How can any sane person be convinced that Washington's wars are for “democracy, peoples and humanity?”

Washington and Organized State Terrorism

The US President Donald Trump today embodies the American bullying with all its aggressiveness, the dealer of political positions doesn't know about the corridors of international politics, except what uncover the aggressive mentality inherent in the successive American administrations. He is a blind, fanatic and ignorant of the facts of history and does not know what the essence of critical issues on the international scene and makes decisions away from understanding the reality of what is going on in the world, just to tell the world that he is a powerful and brutal authority.

The Golan Settlement Scheme is an Israeli Illusion

The Israeli entity, after the American dose of support by Trump's aggressive declaration to grant the alleged sovereignty over the occupied Golan, began to move towards more aggressive settlement policy armed with the cover provided by the White House administration, and the cover by the neo-conservatives of the warlords for its crimes and violations of international laws and resolutions.

This racist entity, represented by its extreme Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the rest of the obsessed with settlement, occupation and crime, hastened to divert their illusions, which wanted to build thousands of Zionist settlements in the occupied Syrian Golan, believing that the ill-fated declaration by Trump is a legitimization to their occupation or that the White House has the authority to issue such a decision as if it were an international legal reference.

Unity of Battle and Strategic Depth

There is no doubt that the discussions held lately in Damascus by the chiefs of staff of the armed forces in Iraq, Syria and Iran have resulted in decisions and outputs that will find their positions as facts on the ground and facts to move firmly and with determination and will in the way of combatting terrorism and those who support terrorists from countries guarantee the terrorist war imposed on Syria throughout the years after the start of this war in its forms and methods and plans to take Syria to the unknown and bloody chaos.

Now the victory has strengthened and the confrontation deepened against terrorism and its supporters. So it is natural to develop and push the tracks of coordination, cooperation and consultation between Iran, Iraq and Syria to ensure the achievement of the desired goals in the eradication of terrorism and achieving complete victory over its tools and sponsors from countries that wanted to invest and employ terrorism to manipulate the unity and sovereignty of both Syria and Iraq, as well as Iran's hostility as the main ally in the fight against terrorism, the friendly partner of Iraq and Syria in this confrontation.
