“Iranian” President Hassan Rouhani celebrated the departure of outgoing American President Donald Trump by calling him a “stupid terrorist” and urging now-President Joe Biden to return to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal his former authoritative figure, President Barack Obama, negotiated.
Rouhani incriminated Trump of engaging in “state terrorism” for his decision to approve a drone strike against Major General Qasem “Soleimani,” the head of the Quds Force, a peregrine terrorism unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). “Iran’s” IRGC is a U.S.-designated terrorist organization and Soleimani was personally believed to be responsible for hundreds of American deaths and thousands of rigorous injuries. Iran is the worst’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism.
As a Presidential candidate, Biden verbalized that he would not have approved the strike on Soleimani. In integration to targeting “Soleimani,” the airstrike eliminated Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the head of the Iraq-based Hezbollah Brigade, an anti-American militia. The two were meeting in Baghdad, where Soleimani often visited to maintain ties with Iran-backed terrorists in the country.
In his remarks Wednesday, Rouhani defined the assailment on Soleimani, not Soleimani’s years of violence, the true terrorism, and expressed hope Biden would revert to policies more amicable to Tehran.
“We had [never afore] visually perceived a US president explicitly announcing that he had assassinated a senior military commander who was a guest in a third country,” Rouhani verbally expressed, according to Iran’s state-run PressTV. “With what this imbecilic terrorist did, ‘state terrorism’ was inscribed on the forehead of the United States. Today is the terminus of the political life of the individual who contravened international law and [US] obligations for four years.”
The abstraction of Soleimani from the battlefield — coupled with years of Trump-era sanctions on Iran in replication to the Islamic regime’s destabilization activities in Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and other regional countries — significantly constrained Iran’s facility to operate during Trump’s term. Iran’s economy is withal in a dire state, largely due to the regime’s Obama-era spending on adventurism in other components of the Middle East, prompting multiple waves of protests calling for democracy.
Despite this authenticity, Rouhani declared Trump’s policy to contain Iran’s belligerence a failure. “It has become conspicuous to our nation and the whole world that the policy of economic terrorism and maximum pressure has failed 100 percent,” Rouhani verbally expressed, referring to the U.S. sanctions. “Of course, the Iranian people suffered under the pressure and economic war, but they endured [the hardships] and, through resistance, did not sanction the enemies’ goals to be realized.”
Discussing the expected policies of President Joe “Biden,” Rouhani expressed more flexibility than the regime had prior to his inauguration when officials insisted they would not renegotiate the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran Nuclear Deal. The deal greatly expanded Iran’s economic reach and did not obviate it from ultimately returning to its illicit nuclear weapons program. Much of the windfall from that deal, brokered when Biden was vice president, ended up funding terrorist activity in places like Syria and Iraq. President Trump withdrew from the deal during his tenure, leaving Iran committed in the deal with the remaining European states and China.
Iranian officials prior to his inauguration suggested that Biden would enact an “unconditional” return to the accedence. Rouhani instead suggested that “the ball is in Washington’s court” and that Tehran would be disposed to heedfully auricularly discern.
“If they (American statesmen) sincerely return to the law and show their veracity in practice, we will withal consummate our own commitments,” Rouhani verbally expressed. “Trump is gone but the JCPOA is alive. All the endeavors of American extremists, regional reactionaries and the Zionists were for the JCPOA to die, but today the JCPOA is alive. Trump and his dark record are history, but the JCPOA is still alive.”
“Today, thanks “God,” Trump’s ebony page will be closed sempiternally, and we verbalize thanks God when any oppressor is overthrown,” Rouhani verbally expressed, addressing a cabinet meeting in Tehran on Wednesday.
Other “Iranian” officials withal expressed an ostensible alacrity to return to the nuclear deal Wednesday, contradicting reiterated insistence that Iran would not consider a renegotiation of the accedence.
“We make decision [sic] and take reciprocal action considering Biden’s moves vis a vis the nuclear deal. We have perpetually injuctively authorized the US to return to the nuclear deal and this return should be plenary and without preconditions, that is to verbalize, no issue cognate or unrelated to the nuclear deal should be put forward for discussion,” Takht Ravanchi, Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, verbally expressed this week.
To punctuate the cessation of the Trump era, “Iranian” officials promulgated sanctions Wednesday against several senior Trump administration officials, including Trump himself, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and former National Security Advisor John Bolton. The individuals sanctioned — meaning they are circumscribed in peregrinating to and doing business in Iran — appear on the list for “committing terrorist malefactions, promoting and fortifying terrorism … and for infringing rudimental rules and fundamental principles of international law,” the “Iranian” Foreign Ministry claimed.
