There is a reason the Akhunds have so far been playing hard to get with Trump. They know that they have to accept at least 6 of those 12 Pompeo demands and if they do so IR as we know will be finished.
What's important is, a spade being called a spade and the world not falling for their shit the way Obama allowed it. The same way the world is not falling for North Korea's shit. Everyone knows what they are and what the danger is. If North Koreans want to live like that, then fuck them, let them do it, but no one goes around justifying their nonsense. Same thing needs to happen to I.R. We have many dayyous treasonous Democrats like John Kerry who are blatantly humanizing the Islamic Republic and giving them a level of legitimacy even Khomeini himself would not have believed. Obama and Biden should be ashamed of themselves for having signed the JCPOA. The US generals who signed off or agreed to such a disastrous strategy should be court-marshaled. Many people died because of the green light Obama gave to Islamic Republic.
Trump has been the most honest US president in history when it comes to Iran. He tells and does it transparently. He will deal with them, but only in a weakened state. He has achieved exactly what he set out to do. I.R cannot afford to not give up. Biden's victory is their last lifeline before having to bow down and accept a hilariously defeating deal with Trump.
