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.

Excerpt:

In the short run, the killing of Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iranís Islamic Revolution Guards Corps., is a complete victory for Trump. The killing came after a long series of Iranian provocations over the past several months and years.

The killing of an American and the attack on the American Embassy in Baghdad, together with planned attacks in the near future, were too much and provoked the drone attack on Soleimani.

The tepid retaliation of the Iranians, firing a modest number of missiles at bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq with no casualties, seems to have been mostly for show, so the Mullah regime could tell Iranians that retaliation was taken without provoking a strong American rection. That domestic Iranian audience was told that dozens of Americans died, when in fact no one died.

Of course, the retaliation may not be over, and we are likely to see an attempt to bleed Americans in the region ó but that carries a risk of American reaction even if carried out by Iranian proxies. So letís see how this develops.

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 Iranís 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.

It was what in early June 2009, near the start of the so-called Green Revolution, I called Negotiations Preconditioned On Mullah Rule:

I guess this is what happens when we have a President who doesn't bend over in front of terrorists and gives them billions if palletized American cash.

This is how you make America great again, you have a President with a backbone, not one with a need to be on his knees... or someone else on theirs.

Got AWAY with it and is STILL idolized by the Left. Hard to understand that logic, unless you hate your country...
