Tehran Divided on Pompeo’s Wish-List

At first glance, the new American “roadmap” on Iran, unveiled by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week, looks like a recipe for regime change in Tehran. That view is echoed in initial European Union comments on the 12-point desiderata that Pompeo presented at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.

Both British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and the EU’s foreign policy spokeswoman Federica Mogherini claim that by going beyond the controversial “nuclear deal” with Iran (known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action — JCPOA), Pompeo may be following a hidden agenda against the Iranian regime.

That claim isn’t so fanciful. Both Pompeo and President Donald Trump’s new National Security adviser, John Bolton, have been advocates of regime change in Iran for more than two decades.

A closer look at the Pompeo’s “roadmap”, however, may reveal a more sophisticated approach.

Pompeo has tried to link the nuclear issue to the broader issue of Iran’s behavior insofar as it affects the interests of the United States and its allies.
