Trump is playing a high-risk-high-reward game of geostrategic chicken with Iran. If we wins, he’ll get a real deal with Iran. If not, it’s war.
My articles on the “Little Cold War” with Iran were cited for Bill McLoughlin’s column on The Daily Express. Read on for more insights into our current situation with Iran.
The key here is for President Trump to strike a strategic balance in the Middle East: the United States cannot ignore Iran’s threat to the region. Balancing with regional powers, like Israel and Saudi Arabia, against Iran in order to contain its threat is good. But, unilaterally (and unexpectedly) slapping all oil sanctions back on Iran in a push for greater levels of hostility, as the White House did recently, creates uncertainty and instability in world energy markets. The more instability that the United States creates in the world energy market through its aggressive actions against Iran, the more likely it is that Russia will benefit.
“By insisting that Europe significantly decrease its reliance on cheap Russian natural gas in favor of expensive American energy sources, Washington is exacerbating the political, economic, and social instability already afflicting Europe today.”
“Nationalism, energy politics, and Russia are all fusing together. The politics of Europe (and the West) have changed forever since 2016. No matter how hard the global elite may wish it to be, things will never return to the way they previously were.”
