Expert: U.S. Promise of a "Longer and Stronger" Iran Deal Will Not Happen

(JNS) Lt.-Col. (ret.) Michael Segall interviewed by Israel Kasnett - Lt.-Col. (ret.) Michael Segall, former head of the Iran Desk of IDF Military Intelligence and currently a senior analyst at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, says that Iran "has the know-how" to go nuclear. "They have proven they are capable of reaching 60% [enrichment] and can get to weapons-grade levels." With the election of Ebrahim Raisi, Iran will have a president who's not pretending to be a moderate. "There is no mix of pragmatists, conservatives or moderates. There is only one face of Iran...radical conservatives." According to Segall, Iran sees everything going its way - from wars against Israel waged by Hamas and Hizbullah to the replacement of Trump and Netanyahu. "Iran considers all these events as Divine intervention for it to fulfill its strategic goals, which is hegemony and dominance of the Middle East....The Iranians...are confident, blunt and defiant. And this is what we will see in the near future." U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken's promise for a "longer and stronger" Iran deal "will not happen."
