Critical Foreign Policy Delayed For Obvious Reasons - Or Lack of Critical Reasoning

While at the same time American politicos and other participants of the nuclear watch (in the Viennese arena) on the Iranian Islamic Regime's continued efforts to achieve thermo-nuclear ambitions of empire, the new Iranian leader asserts a singularly ambitious projection of achieving that status by dictating an unwillingness not to meet the American 46th Administrative Chief Executive, possibly until that benchmark can be announced. Is anyone surprised?
Historically, this new leader does not have a reputation of negotiation; in view of the foreign policy damage of the predecessor 44th Administration's willingness to facilitate and finance those ambitions, even when paused by the 45th Administration's policies, the determination is that he does not need the 46th Administration's less than stellar admonitions of political correctness. The shackles of caution are off.
The critical reasoning here is that nuclear parity (or superiority) with weaponized intentions are to be expected; but the world powers apparently are not so alarmed yet to reverse the issues of sanctioning the Regime to slow down or even reverse the intentions for the lack of funding.
All this means is that Hamas and Hizbollah are to be used as delaying proxies until the Iranian Islamic Regime achieves its goal; to become the empire power on the way to eschatological achievements.
The previous American 45th Administration had put check on that. However, in a mere hundred or so days, all such precautionary actions drifted away in a somnolescent 'could-not-care' attitude that is the evidence the world no longer trusts America as the moral leader of freedom; and the new leader of the Iranian Islamic Regime appears confident he no longer needs to assuage such intentions on the way to achieving his ambitions. Without a strong and free American leadership to check that, how long will it be now?
