The hostile policies of the United States towards the Islamic Republic of Iran can be seen as having several bills and extensions. From policies of destroying the international currency to approaches based on threats and sanctions. In the meantime, in parallel with the effectiveness of the Democrats or Republicans, the confrontation policies with Iran have also undergone sometimes deep fluctuations. In other words, if the policies of extremist Republicans like Trump were based on maximizing the challenges with the Islamic Republic, the examination of such policies and strategies by Democrats like Joe Biden has been done by insisting on other strategies. For this reason, the current article is a research in providing a reasoned and convincing answer to the question that the most important sanctions strategies of the United States against the Islamic Republic of Iran (with an emphasis on the Joe Biden era) are based on what discourses? The hypothesis of the authors or the central sign of the current article emphasizes the fact that the macro discourse of the United States in this period includes stopping policies, containment by delaying the domestic development of peaceful nuclear knowledge of Iran, destabilizing internal security and public order, disrupting the regionalist policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The article findings by using the threat balance framework, analytical descriptive method and using written and virtual sources, show the increasing cost of the Islamic Republic of Iran to defend the priorities of its national interests in the security-defense structure of the Middle East and forcing Iran to align its behavior. It is with American policies that are formulated in the form of a strategic model. Finally, the authors will try to provide appropriate solutions from the Islamic Republic of Iran.
