The Iran nuclear deal led to Iran ensuring its programme is safe and peaceful, a possible war was avoided. Before the talks began each side refused pressure from each other and there was lack of communication and threats from both sides created a dangerous situation. Diplomacy, therefore, was no only solution left to avoid an eventual war. Diplomacy is your strength, not weakness. Successful and regular diplomatic engagement between the US sect of state John Kerry and Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif proves that successful diplomacy is between your enemies and not your friends. The positive effects of successful diplomacy between these two countries could be seen later events such as when the American sailors accidentally crossed the Iranian border and were detained but were
There were countless leaders during the Iranian Hostage Crisis, far too many to mention in just one project. Therefore, I have narrowed my topic to the Leadership of President Jimmy Carter. President Carter was a small-town Democrat from Georgia. Before he ran for president, he was virtually an unknown. Therefore he ran a “grassroots campaign,” which can be incredibly
Some modern leaders look more inward as to their nations’ policies and people to affect change. Hosni Mubarak, former President of Egypt, aimed to unite his country and better certain systems to strengthen the nation. When in a hard and confusing time, Mubarak provided Egypt with a steady guiding hand. In the midst of this chaos, instead of addressing the questions and wants of the people, Hosni Mubarak demanded they offer themselves to supply the needs of their country and support their leader. This mindset calmed Egyptians as Mubarak reopened Egypt to the Arab world, tried to reaffirm the constitution and judicial system, and tackled social issues. (New Leaders of Nations #1). Former prime minister of India
Perhaps the number one event, that will cost Jimmy Carter his reelection for president was the Iranian Hostage Crisis that went on for approximately 444 days and held 52 American diplomat citizens hostage in Iran. Several Iranian students, stormed the American embassy on November 4, 1979. This had all occurred because the former, exiled, Shah of Iran had been permitted entry into the United States to receive medical treatment for cancer. In the 1950’s the Shah of Iran was appointed by the United States. He was a dictator, who ruled with violence and cruelty. The people of Iran, are traditionally Shiite Muslims and the Shah was taking Iran towards a more progressive society. This further upset the people of Iran who did not want their conservative
First, this dude call Minister Farrakhan the devil “If Lucifer had a son it be Louis Farrakhan”. Secondly, the minster is a positive role model for black men. Here is another black man, displaying self-hate, toward himself and his own people. Not to be cynical, this is a brother who probably listens to country music, and will attend a NASCAR event; further, I might assume is married to someone not of this race. However, what I found disturbing are his use of certain words; such as devil, Lucifer, hate, anti-Semitic, and racists. His views and opinions are more disconcerting because his the chief of police in a major city, I would be more afraid him than white officer. He would deny the minister protection in his city, however, probably
President George W. Bush’s “axis of evil” speech undermined support of Iranians who argued for better relations with the United States. When Bush made that speech in 2002, Mohammad Khatami, a reformer, was the president of Iran (Freedman 473). The United States sanctions against Iran have helped to further the Abadgaran regime’s agenda by giving justification to a group that is desperate for it; the sanctions have allowed them to consolidate their power and further oppress Iranians who go against the government’s policies. Iran’s current state is best described in Lawrence Freeman’s A Choice of Enemies:
In a short period, the new president of the Untied States has caused many uncertainty, which affected numerous people widely from the nation to worldwide by his statement, policies, and attitude since he was elected. Most people believe that the president is a rightist, racism, and masculinist. However, as a foreigner in the America, It does hardly feel that he has any influence on my life directly so far. However, his some actions, plan and statement already caused disturbance in my country and the world.
Ayatollah Khomeini, the Islamic centers (Islamic sciences) and the round-table on the instruction of Ayatollah Boroujerdi in Khom led students during the years which followed the movement of his peers that the overthrow of the Pahlavi dynasty, headed by Ayatollah Mutahhari and not only Ayatollah Muntaziri, but Hojatolislam Mohammad Javad Bahonar and Hashimi- Hojatolislam Ali Akbar Rafsanjani as young men.
President Hassan Rouhani recently called the nuclear deal the shining sun which everybody does witness, he may be right but what he does not mention is that the shining sun of the nuclear deal has not warmed the ordinary Iranians. Iran’s statistical center announced the disappointing growth rate of 0.7 percent between March 2015 and December 2015 for Iran’s economy. The stagnant growth is combined with an increase in the Gini Index, which measures inequality. After almost three years, Rouhani has failed to deliver his economic promises. The partial sanction relief and the consequent removal of sanctions have not translated into steady growth and prosperity. In 15 months, Rouhani faces re-election contest, his economic failure puts him on
In May, President Hassan Rouhani won his re-election bid with 57 percent of the votes and beat his main rival, the hardline Ayatollah Ebrahim Raisi. Three months later, in August, Rouhani sent the list of his cabinet to the Parliament. Like his first cabinet, most of the ministers have military and intelligence background, and many are former officers of the Ministry of Intelligence and Security. Rouhani’s cabinet is in direct contrast to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s cabinet which the members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had dominated. Majority of western analysts describe Iran’s politics as the scene of rivalry between the Reformist-Moderate camp and the hardliner front. A more accurate description should portray the rift between
It is a common conception that Obama’s prior efforts of engagement with the Iranian government have set many precedents for how the U.S is to communicate with Iran (and the Middle East) in the future, with some even referencing Obama’s attempts to amend the relationship between the two countries as monumental for not just the political legacy of the U.S, but specifically, the Obama administration as well. The relationship between the two countries seems to be primarily focused on the fact that the U.S is trying to control how Iran manages their nuclear weapons program, as the Obama Administration is unsure of what the nuclear capacity of the country is, and thusly, this may severe and cause suspicion to arise not just with reference to neighboring countries, but also one that connects to dangers that are prevalent on an international level; this is important because we are not aware of what the destructive capacity of the weapons are as a whole, due to the secretism that the Iranian regime’s nuclear program undertakes when looking into building their weaponry. The Obama Administration seems to have taken the approach of establishing strong diplomatic ties in order to prevent Iran from engaging in any acts of mass terrorism, as they have priorily expressed interest in taking action against Israel. In some cases the U.S utilized sanctions, some which caused disruption in their oil industry, thusly impacting their economy to a certain degree. Many have criticized Obama’s
First, I would like to give an overall background of the country Iran. Iran is officially known as the Islamic Republic of Iran, the name change was due to its revolution from 1978 to 1979 when the ruling monarchy was overthrown by Shitte Mulims. Iran was also known as Persia until 1935 until Nazi Germany influenced the Iranian government to change its name to Iran. Following the revolution, Iran adopted its current theocratic government and first Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who was chosen by a 86-member body of clerics know as the Assembly of Experts who are responsible for carefully selecting and monitoring the Supreme Leader. Ruhollah Khomeini was succeeded by current Supreme Leader, Ali Hosseini Khamenei. The relationship between the United States and Iran became tense when a group of Iranians held hostage U.S. personnel in Tehran’s U.S. Embassy, the country’s capital, for over a year between 1979 and 1981. Iran would fight Iraq between 1980 and 1988 in what became known as the Iran-Iraq war. This war would expand out to the Persian Gulf where the U.S.’s and Iran’s military would battle each other in what turned into The Gulf War which took place from 1990 to 1991. Under U.S. eyes, Iran has become a supporter of terrorism due to its involvement with it and because of its current nuclear program. Iran recently replaced its president due to Ahmadi-Nejad’s winning streak for the presidential election. The current president is Dr. Hasan Fereidun Ruhani who
From his childhood during Korean War to his second election as the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Ki-moon Ban has demonstrated the leadership of resiliency, with which he was able to turn crisis into opportunities for his success. Moreover, Mr. Ban’s diligence, sincerity and warm-heartedness also contributed greatly to his rise, along with high performance capability. With such recognition, Mr. Ban successfully expanded his political network (both in Korea and in the organization of US) with apparent sincerity, great communication skill and sharp sociopolitical awareness. During the course of this paper, our group (“We”) will analyze and discuss how Mr. Ki-moon Ban used various situational conflicts as an opportunity to
Jokowi become sources of inspiration for me. I choose Jokowi as one of the political figures who influence on society life of Indonesia. Through his journey we can learn a lot of things as we should not give up against the circumstances because the fate of someone can be changed if people want to try fighting for what he wants.
In 2014 Indonesia’s new President, Joko Widodo, planned to end government corruption and improve the economic reform. Indonesia currently struggles with extreme poverty, inadequate infrastructure for the rapidly growing nation, and economic and social reform issues. It has implemented a 20 year development social and infrastructure revision plan beginning in 2005 and projected to end in 2025.
