Former Iranian ambassador to Iraq Hassan Danaeifar said that the passive position of the U.S. spells its imminent collapse. He made his remarks in an interview that aired on Channel 5 (Iran) on July 5, 2021. Danaeifar said that current U.S. President Biden is not a "two-term president" and that he cannot make decisions. He added that he witnessed the fall of the Shah and the USSR and he shall also witness the fall of America.

Hassan Danaeifar: "American society has encountered serious problems. There is serious polarization, which manifested itself, especially with the election of President Trump. The attack on the Congress is not insignificant.

"I believe that that current president is not a two-term president. He is a president who cannot make decisions. The Americans have been unable to make a decision with regard to Syria. They have made half decisions and failed to accomplish their plans – not only in Iraq, with regard to ISIS, but also in Syria, and in Lebanon. When we examine the region, we see that on various issues, the Americans have taken a passive position. This passive position spells the imminent collapse of America. You can rest assured [about that]. You and I have witnessed the fall of the Shah and that of the USSR, and we shall witness the fall of America."
