Published 2019-04-27 15:30:22 by Guest Author in Headline-News, Iran, Mena

By Adeel Abbas Mangi –  The recent US announcement regarding the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has changed the course of history.

However, this escalation can be reassessed through the prism of regional and international realpolitik dynamics. On February 17, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stated, “The demonization of my country has been a convenient cross for… Continue ->
