Is Star Wars the imitation model of the Zionist regime to confront Iran?

In an interview with the Times magazine, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett claimed that his model of confrontation with Iran is a Star Wars plan during Ronald Reagan’s presidency in the 1980s, but that the possibility of implementing this imitated model is a matter for discussion.

NOURNEWS - Many historians and political analysts believe that this plan played a significant role in accelerating the collapse of the Soviet Union. According to Bennett’s statements and his megalomanic behavior, reviewing the Star Wars plan and comparing Iran with the Soviet Union and the Zionist regime with the United States, taking into account temporal and spatial considerations, and what methods the Zionist regime claims it can employ to wage a Star Wars against Iran can be important.

The fact is that the prelude to the American Star Wars against the Soviets was a political program. The US National Security Document in the early Reagan administration emphasized the need to negotiate and reach an agreement with the Soviet Union on key issues, but did not allow America’s ideological enemy to take full advantage of its economic interests. The document also calls for the strengthening of the internal dynamics of Eastern European societies, given the dissatisfaction of Eastern European societies with the rule of communism. In fact, the Soviets’ tough confrontation with protest movements in Eastern Europe had reduced Soviet influence in this part of Europe. On the other hand, fears of internal protests in Eastern European societies increasingly forced governments and communist parties in Eastern Europe to move towards securitization of the internal space, and securitization of the internal space continuously reduced influence of Soviet Union. This created a vicious circle that allowed the United States to exploit.

The Soviet leaders and Gorbachev himself became aware of their political and economic inefficiencies and therefore put on the agenda the Glasnost and Prostrika plans for political and economic reforms, thereby improving both the Soviet economy and opening of the political space in order to prevent the securitization of the society, especially in Eastern Europe. The delayed Soviet reforms were met with internal obstacles and external pressures. Meanwhile, external pressure from the United States made things harder for the Soviet Union.

First, the fact that the United States prevented the Soviets from exploiting the economic benefits of an agreement with the West exacerbated the poor economic conditions in the Soviet Union. Second, in addition to this political plan, Reagan launched a new plan against the Soviet Union, known as Star Wars. In a religious sense, Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union an evil that the United States should not seek agreement with.  Prior to Reagan, all US presidents believed that a balance of power had to be maintained with the Soviets to prevent a nuclear war. The balance of power meant that the United States, on the one hand, should not be weaker than the Soviet Union in inciting Moscow to attack the United States, and on the other hand, the United States should not be so powerful militarily as the Soviets in order to create insecurity among Soviet leaders to encourage a pre-emptive war against the United States.

Ronald Reagan did not accept this belief and said that the security of American citizens should not be in the hands of decision-makers in Moscow. In fact, the absolute security of the United States should be merely a function of the decisions of its officials. He argued, therefore, that the United States should have such weapons that it could attack the Soviet Union if necessary and, by strengthening its defense systems, prevent the Soviet Union from attacking.

Third, by increasing Soviet spending on crises such as the war in Afghanistan and supporting the communities of Soviet-controlled countries, especially in Eastern Europe, the United States is increasingly straining the Soviet Union. What prompted Reagan to pursue these plans, especially the costly Star Wars plan, was the country’s economic boom in the 1980s, which could have covered all the costs of intensifying competition with the Soviet Union. The sick Soviet economy, on the other hand, lacked such power due to internal inefficiency and external pressures. Thus, the 1980s was a decade for the Soviet Union for weak economy facing many military and political costs that the Soviet economy could not afford.

Based on what has been said, in terms of temporal and spatial components, the enmity between Iran and the Zionist regime with each other with the enmity of the Soviet Union and the United States in the 1980s has important differences and commonalities. Naturally, what made Naftali Bennett think he could imitate Reagan’s so-called Star Wars model of Iran is the commonalities, not the differences, between Iran and the former Soviet Union. The most important aspect of Iran’s partnership with the Soviet Union, which was the target of the Star Wars, is the various crises and poor economic conditions due to US and Western sanctions. But the fundamental question is, what steps is Israel taking to pursue and implement the so-called Star Wars plan against Iran? Before answering this question, it should be noted that Israel alone, without US support and help, lacks the capacity to put Iran in a position similar to that of the Soviet Union in the 1980s. But it is possible that the Zionist regime and the United States will work together to implement Reagan’s anti-Soviet policy against Iran in the 1980s. Their methods for implementing their project include the following:

To portray the idea of the Islamic Republic inefficient: In the 1980s, one of America’s main goals was to show that the idea of ​​communism was inefficient and incapable of meeting the needs of its societies. The fact that Naftali Bennett also claims that the Iranian government is incapable of providing water and electricity to its people and refers to Iran’s economic characteristics is due to such a mentality.

To discredit the Islamic Republic of Iran: Israel and the United States are trying to challenge the notion that the Islamic Republic of Iran is a great power that dominates its affairs. In the 1980s, the United States also sought to portray the Soviet Union as a paper superpower. Carrying out terrorist acts inside Iran, sabotaging Iran’s nuclear facilities, and attacking Iran’s interests in Syria are some of the actions that Israel is taking to discredit the Islamic Republic as a regional power.

To encourage regional opposition to the Islamic Republic of Iran: It has been mentioned that in the 1980s, people in many Eastern European societies opposed Soviet influence. Israel hopes to form a similar opposition against Iran in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.

To engage of the Islamic Republic of Iran in regional crises: The regions around Iran are entangled in various crises in which Israel is trying to engage Iran in more crises in bad economic conditions. For example, the recent issue of Azerbaijan could be one of these efforts.

Cyberattacks: Israel seeks to engage Iran in cyber warfare. If successful, Israeli cyber-attacks against Iran could not only reduce the credibility of Iran’s military-security institutions, but also provoke internal discontent. The most recent case involving fuel stations is one of these measures. Israel may also target Iran’s electricity and gas facilities in the winter. The condition for success in cyber operations is the allocation of high costs that Israel thinks the Islamic Republic of Iran cannot afford.

In view of the above, and in order to prevent the implementation of the enemy plan, it is necessary for the Islamic Republic of Iran to be more vigilant. In this regard, it was quite clever not to get involved in the inevitable developments in Afghanistan and not to get involved in the war between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

For example, the action of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council against Lebanon, which is in line with the actions of the West, aims to intensify the internal crisis in Lebanon. Arab countries and Israel hope that this will lead to more Iranian involvement in the Lebanese crisis. In short, in order to ensure its security, Iran must reduce the number of fronts in the region in which it is involved and take care not to engage in costly crises.
