Iran has never been far from the Western and Zionist plans aimed at devastating any Arab country as it has always played the main role in any sabotage project within the Arab states. It is the reason behind the destruction of Iraq, Yemen and Syria and provoking chaos in Lebanon and Bahrain and many others. In the Arab Maghreb countries, it is also involved in stirring sedition and is still planning and participating in conspiracies aimed at widening instability in the region. Furthermore, it remains determined to remain a revolution and not acting like any other state in this world!

Iran, which is led by one man, the supreme leader, has the illusion that it had a great ability to change the equations in the region and extend clouts here and there, by presenting itself as a tool of Western powers aspiring to dominate the region, especially the United States, until Tehran became one of the most important tools that the Western powers are relying on in implementing their agendas in the region. Despite the alleged hostility that is repeatedly shown in the media between Iran and the United States, the former proved to the latter that it was and still in dire need for its services in the implementation of American Zionist plans, and that it is able to provide greater services more than Israel itself would do!

In fact, Iran’s policies are in the best interests of the world’s great powers, led by the United States and Russia, and it also contributes greatly to the success of Zionist projects. Despite US sanctions, Iran remains eager to prove that it is the most important and effective country in serving US interests in the region, and for that, Iran is most likely to offer more concessions and guarantees to the United States under the table in return of an agreement that serves both US and Iranian interests at the expense of the region’s countries, including Iran’s current allies.

According to statements by Iranian officials, and Tehran’s insistence on pushing countries to adhere to the nuclear agreement and its silence towards US strikes, as well as reports talking about secret channels of communication between Revolutionary Guard and Trump officials, all the above indicate that Iran is seeking to reach an agreement with Trump to lift the sanctions. However, this will take a great deal of effort by Tehran to reassure the White House that Iran will not rebel again against the United States and will not seek nuclear weapons or develop weapons that pose a threat to Israel’s security and US interests in the region.

Iraq will be present strongly in the Iranian concessions, as it is certain that Iran will reassure the United States that it will not prejudice any of its interests there, as well as not seeking to cause any security or political damage to the Zionist entity, and abiding by all US directives, especially with regard to regional files. Thus, this means that Iranian arms and tools in the region will be directed only to harm the peoples and regimes of the region.

If Iran was not able to convince the US administration of its concessions, it will face crises that it will not be able to address or overcome. Hence, the next stage will be mainly for the conflict between Trump’s determination to put an end to the Iranian sabotage behavior and Tehran’s attempts to prove its ability to serve US and Israeli interests in the region and its Intensive endeavors on all levels to reshape Iraq according to Washington’s aspirations and desire as the most important Iranian concession at the moment.

The concern however now is that the United States might use Iranian influence in Iraq to infiltrate the popular bases of the anti-US forces and buying loyalties of Shiite political figures to serve the long-term US presence in Iraq, in return for the US silence towards the Iranian behavior and the activities of the Revolutionary Guard in the region.
