President Trump Has Reset Iran Diplomacy For USA


Trump reset the Obama Grand Bargain with the Mullahs by taking out Soleimani and staring down threats of retaliation

Obama tried to set the arc of history towards the Mullahs, handing Iran the Middle East in exchange for nuclear compromises. Trump just bent that arc. Whether that bend ends up breaking Iranian regional expansion remains to be seen.

The reaction-retaliation analysis that dominates the media, with a heavy focus on the Iran Nuclear Deal, misses the bigger importance of what Trump has done. By taking out the military architect of Iran's expansionist plans in the Middle East and beyond, and then forcing the Iranians to back down from meaningful relatiation, Trump has disrupted Obama administration Middle East plans.

The Iran Nuclear Deal has to be understood as one part of a bigger Grand Bargain promoted on the left. That Grand Bargain normalized the Mullah regime as a regional power in exchange for the Mullahs playing nicer on nuclear and other issues. That was the objective pursued by the Obama administration, to hand the Middle East to the Iranians in exchange for a decade delay in Iran developing nuclear material for a weapon.
