‘America Has No idea About the World It Wants to Run’ – Scholar
President Trump’s decision to pull out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran has dismayed just about everyone, with the United Nations, the EU, Russia, Turkey all criticizing his “hard exit” from the groundbreaking accord.
In an interview with Sputnik, Marco Lombardi, director of the Italian Team for Security, Terroristic Issues & Managing Emergencies center in Milan (ITSTIME), explained Trump’s move by his apparent desire to get off the track beaten by his predecessor and show the world that America has a new president now.
He added, however, that the decision to withdraw from the Iran deal shows once again that “America has no idea about the world it wants to run.”
“The American exit could change the makeup of the existing accords. America is seeking its allies’ respect so that it can preserve its eternal image of a leader. This is exactly what al-Baghdadi did after he established the Caliphate. He wanted other countries to recognize his leadership. On the other hand, the modern world, so mired in conflicts, does need new alliances.” Lombardi said.
