Why Trump's strategy for Iran is likely to lead to war

The Nation has published an article by Trita Parsi on 23 May 2018 which you can read here. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's speech on May 21 only reinforced what was already known about Donald Trump's strategy for Iran: Either the president is ratcheting up the pressure on Tehran to get a "better deal," which is the official story and the gist of Pompeo's message, or he is merely pretending to be interested in new negotiations, while putting into place the building blocks for a military assault on Iran. Yet even if Trump genuinely seeks new negotiations, he is more likely to end up in a war, because the very premise of Pompeo's speech is false. That's because more pressure on Iran would not have secured a better nuclear deal in 2015—it would only have led to war, or to a nuclear Iran.

FDD request to start economic war with Iran

In its latest plan against Iran, The FDD has proposed to Trump to sanction Swift, its directors, and European Banks working with Iran. Mark Dubowitz, chief executive, and Richard Goldberg, senior adviser at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), have published their article entitled “Iran, Get Ready for the Battle Rial” in the Wall Street Journal on 21 May 2018, saying that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday presented the Islamic Republic of Iran with a stark choice: Either change or face “unprecedented financial pressure” in the form of “the strongest sanctions in history when we are complete.” The Trump administration has declared financial war on the Iranian regime. Given the seriousness of its currency emergency, it’s a good bet America will win.
