(FiveNation.com)- Iran’s Permanent Mission to the UN said that it need not be concerned about a regime change or collapse. As a result of American aggression in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya and its support for instability in Syria, even government critics have concluded that the existing state of affairs is more tolerable than instability.
Iran is now experiencing one of its most significant difficulties as it battles internal and foreign opponents in a struggle for survival and greater-power status forty-four years after enduring an Islamic Revolution that had global implications.
Attacks against Iran have intensified recently, many of which are primarily linked to American ally Israel. Tehran also attributes the upsurge in domestic insurgency to foreign players attempting to capitalize on widespread demonstrations after the murder of Mahsa Amini, 22, in police custody in September.
Tensions between Washington and Tehran have reached a breaking point. President Joe Biden’s administration states that “every option remains on the table” to prevent the Islamic Republic from acquiring a nuclear weapon despite its repeated denials.
Though Iranian officials consider Washington’s history of war and meddling in the area and its periphery as a factor contributing to their government’s tenacity, Tehran has an odd force to thank in the face of such adversity.
This American track record, which often leaves governments severely destabilized, has drawn harsh criticism from Iranian leaders. Such criticism comes even as some of Washington’s initiatives finally enabled Tehran to increase its own influence while also strengthening its domestic military. The Middle East’s top drone and missile forces have emerged, but at a high cost to an economy that sanctions have long plagued.
Despite these tensions, the Iranian Mission claims that “war and foreign threats aren’t a problem for the Islamic Revolution at this time since Iran has struck a balance between military force and threats, which has minimized the potential of foreign military action.”
The Mission continued, “The government’s priority is on resolving the domestic issues of the nation, which includes managing the economic issues and creating political space within the parameters of the constitution.
