Circumstances of the Iran Nuclear Deal

Iran's pursuit of independent policies brought it into a long-standing conflict with the US. The present nuclear deal is a vindication of Iran's independent stand.

The conclusion of the nuclear deal with Iran is the outcome of a situation that everyone ought to be familiar with. This is because the experiences the country has had to endure provide lessons for any country which finds itself constrained by pressures from world powers. The victory won by Iran in the nuclear deal shows that if the administrators and common people stay committed to their independent goals, even if those goals conflict with the interests of the great powers, they can ultimately succeed. And yet, commentaries on such issues often fixate on the personalities of those who are purportedly the drivers of history. World historic occasions like the Iran deal are often explained as the great doings of individuals who lead by charisma, or framed as a battle of ideologies, like “Democrat versus Republican values” in the United States (US), or “Reformism versus Conservatism” in Iran. In actuality, the leading individuals or ideologies are subordinate to the material circumstances of the period in question, as will be explained in this article.
