We can’t predict with any real certitude what will happen in foreign affairs, but, as of now, the Trump administration has hampered Iran’s ability to stoke conflict in the region and created ­domestic pressure that may put checks on its militaristic ambitions.

The re-imposition of sanctions has cut Iran’s oil exports at least in half, which pushed the nation into an economic downturn. ­According to the International Monetary Fund, inflation has spiked more than 30% over the past year.

The unemployment rate, especially among the young and urban workers, has skyrocketed. The government is reportedly planning for cuts in military spending.

A number of major European companies have also been compelled to live by US sanctions. Who would you choose: the largest economy on Earth or a creaky militaristic terror state?
