Iran-Russia-China: A Strategic Alliance Is Born While the US Loses Ground and Allies

By Elijah J. Magnier | American Herald Tribune | July 27, 2020

In 2005 Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad began “looking East” to consolidate Iran’s relationship with Russia and China rather than with Europe and the US. He shared the belief of the Rahbar, Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, that the West could not be trusted.

In 2013, when Sheikh Hassan Rouhani came to power, the Leader of the Revolution did not reject his request to try and break through the “nuclear negotiation” with the Americans. “Go and try but know that if you give the West a finger, it will ask for the entire arm. They are untrustworthy”. Indeed, in 2018, President Donald Trump unlawfully and unilaterally revoked the 2015-signed “nuclear deal”, known as the JCPOA. Moreover, Trump exerted the harshest economic and commercial sanctions on Iran to attempt to break the country’s back and force it to submit. Two years later, in 2020, ties with the West are at their lowest level ever. Iran has accordingly changed its tactical relationship with Russia and China to a deeply- rooted strategic relationship with hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of deals now signed for periods of 20 and 25 years.

Following the failure of the US “maximum pressure” on the “Islamic Republic”, Iran is holding firm under the leadership of Sayyed Ali Khamenei, excluding the possibility of contacting President Donald Trump, whether it is to re-negotiate the nuclear deal, offer any concessions, or discuss its missile programs. It is steadily developing its non-military nuclear programme notwithstanding the Israeli sabotage of its Natanz nuclear facility. Moreover, Iran has signed a $400 billions deal with China, without thereby precluding the possibility to sit around the table with a US president when President Trump leaves office in a few months or years. Also, Iran is preparing a new and more robust rapprochement and strategic collaboration with Russia, greater than ever, to create a united front including all countries under US sanctions, united together against Washington.

For the last two years, Europe offered words but no actions sufficient to honour the JCPOA. The European countries did not dare to stand against the unlawful US decision and prevented their banks and companies from respecting already signed contracts with Iran. European leaders have the interests of Israel in mind (after those of the US) above all others, and are unreliable partners. China and Russia are acting independently from the US unilateral sanctions on Iran and other countries are also joining in. The Iranian choice is very simple for us and Sayyed Ali Khamenei has taken a strategic choice which all key decision-makers support. We can’t wait for the next US President, for the day Trump leaves office. We have a clear objective and have the option to look into the US-EU choice once it is serious enough. However, both the US and the EU will no longer be Iran’s first choice of business”, said the Iranian decision-maker. China and Russia are not the only two countries who rejected the US unilateral sanctions. Turkey, India and Pakistan have all refused to cease their commercial and energy relationship with Iran.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Zarif made one of his most important visits to Moscow, a “tested partner in Syria and a real supporter at the United Nations at the most needed time when the US has lost its balance”, said the source. After the deal with China, a comprehensive deal with Russia is on its way to pave the road for Iran to join the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation as a member and no longer merely as an observer. This will involve establishing a very long -term partnership on all levels, including the military cooperation with another long-term deal to sign in the near future.

These are exceptional deals with superpower countries. It is unusual for Iran to accept the terms imposed by dealing with such powerful countries; Iran is treading the minefield of article 3 of its constitution. New alliances are emerging, between countries united and strengthened by the imposition of US sanctions imposed on all of them. Meanwhile, the US is losing more ground and more allies.

  1. I think that the USA’s view of itself as “The Most Powerful Nation on Earth” has given them a dangerous view of themselves. They used to call themselves “The World’s Policeman” but in fact, have become the “World’s Bullies”, instead of working with other nations, they have become bellicose and domineering, and it’s not a good look, to anyone.
    IT may be a good idea to do some self assessment, because they haven’t won a war(despite killing millions of mostly innocent people) since WWII when they, and their Allies, cleaned up what was left of the German Military after it had been BRUTALISED by the Russians.

    Make no mistake, it was the Russians who defeated Germany in WWII. Anyway, the USA needs to have a long hard look at itself, because the rest of the world is sick of the Arrogance of the M.I.C., and in its arrogance, it hasn’t noticed that the American Government has been “White-Anted” from within. I think people will know what I mean, and who I’m talking about.
    Instead of bullying, menacing and threatening other countries around the World, it may be a great idea to clean up the Totally corrupted “American GOVERNMENT”……Clean out all the Vermin, and “TAKE YOUR COUNTRY BACK.

  2. Thanks–excellent overview and notice of in-process realignments and hints of huge changes to come…the US is too sclerotic (at such a young national age, yet!) and entangled by Zionism to do more than flail about, fail, and fall. My prime lament is that so much of humanity must suffer as it is caught in the maw of sanctions-cum-imposed immiseration, belligerence, war, cultural/societal suppression, etc.

    All lives matter.

    (Note: Militant/Political Zionism and its monster-platform on “holy” land are the rat in the stew. Be very wary: criminal psychosis requires confrontation and treatment, not coddling and impunity.)

  3. The leadership of the Islamic Republic, in developing relations with the two other super-powers, has helped not only itself but the rest of the World. For. as Brian Harry says, the US has become a bully, I would call it an aggressive global dictatorship, rather than what we once thought was a force for good. Brian is also right that the US has been infiltrated by a parasite. This has corrupted its foreign policies and turned it into an aggressive pariah for the parasites’ benefit. Its mission statement in 1990 ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’ was a blatant threat to World peace which needs to be ‘policed’ or arrested by a coalition of the great and the good, i.e. the Non-Aligned Nations led by Russia, China, Iran and others. Exposing and cutting out that parasite was what we expected Donald Trump to do when he vowed to “drain the swamp” and avoid further wars. But unfortunately, the parasite is cunning and found a way to infect him, too; by marrying one of its tentacles to his daughter. Yes, ideally, the American people should “take their country back” but they have been warned before and thwarted. The Iran-Russia-China Alliance is a vital step in countering that parasite’s devastating strategy to gobble up the Middle East which will cause millions more deaths, more destruction of ancient cultures and draw the World into global war.

    • “But unfortunately, the parasite is cunning and found a way to infect him, too; by marrying one of its tentacles to his daughter.” Right on! (There are others of the parasite cunning in their own ways: Adelson, Satanyahu, Kushner himself…who studied and divined and acted upon Trump’s personality disorders to their, and their colonial tribe’s, advantage. There are even others — Bill Kristol, Wolf Blitzer, Max Boot — who I observe feel comfortable in “opposing” Trump’s reign while purring contentedly at the “good” that he has done for their first love, the Ziomonster; I think, however, that they fear constantly the fallout that might/would result were Trump’s mercurial child’s instincts to find out that he’s been had [and we along with him] and turn on the entirety of the Zionist Enterprise. It’s all part of the psychosis, and I wish I were better able to analyze, diagnose and explicate it adequately in all its forms and dimensions….)

  4. You make a good start at the analysis, Robert. As you probably know, ‘The Israel Lobby’ by Mearsheimer & Walt makes a fairly comprehensive stab at the intruders. I hope you are right that Trump “realizes he’s been had and turns on the Zionist enterprise”. He could use twitter but he would have to be sure the voters will back him in November. The threat of Biden being more outspoken against Israeli crimes might oblige him to take the lead. But the massive and illegal funding of both Parties by this foreign agency will no doubt ‘manage’ the rhetoric that filters through. He should take legal action against this unconstitutional, and yes, psychotic, corruption of his democracy.
