یکی از توهمات خود خوشنود ساز بسیاری از منتقدین سیاست پریدنت ترامپ در قبال ایران این است که اقدامات وی موجب تضعیف میانه روهای رژیم جمهوری اسلامی میشود
President Trump's remarks that the shooting down of an American drone was a mistake and probably not intentional could have damaging consequences for multiple reasons. This sends the wrong message to the regime and its allies, as Supreme Leader Khamenei may feel assured that Iran's military deterrence is fully established and the US will make similar decisions in future.
The export of the Islamic Revolution is an enduring priority for the Iranian regime, ensuring its long-term enmity towards the US. Therefore, no amount of appeasement towards Tehran by Democrats in Washington or their allies in academia will change this reality.
