Another hypocritical read by @WashingtonPost, this time from @gbrew24.

I explain how this read actually resents the fact that #Iran's people are now #Winning.

It's interesting how this read criticizes Trump's hard line against #Iran's regime & argues such US policy failed once before back in 1953 after a CIA-sponsored coup brought an end to Iran's sole democratic government under Mossadegh.
(3)
The read goes to say the coup led to the return of the Shah & his authoritarian rule, the people becoming angry and 25 years later today's theocratic mullahs taking over 1979.
And the mullahs' enmity against America is obvious.

#Putin now on Channel one gives interview on #HelsinkiSummit, says he agreed with Trump to continue working at the expert level on some of the "new ideas that there are on how to fix conflict in east of #Ukraine."
#Putin after having studied #Trump today: @realDonaldTrump can listen, but keeps his own opinion on many issues" adds many mistakingly call his approach that of businessman but he is acting as a pure politician because he is very much catering to his base, his constituency.
#Putin on #JCPOA:It’s the tool to guarantee nuclear non-proliferation across the region.#Iran one of the most controllable countries by #IAEA.We understnd #Trump’s position,he was saying IRN should stop destructive regional policies. But this[approach]shouldnt lead to nixing deal

This has #Iran's regime terrified
#HelsinkiSummit2018

Trump:
We talked about Iran's dossier & the necessity to stop their meddling in the region... Meeting with Putin was great.

Putin:
Joint cooperation with the US is enough to resolve the #Syria crisis.

#Iran's thoughts during #HelsinkiSummit2018
"We spent billions in Syria. Received all the condemnations. Heard all the criticism. Lost hundreds of our senior officers & suffered thousands of casualties among our #IRGC... And now others are deciding about the future..."

Bad news for #Iran's regime
Trump at #HelsinkiSummit2018:
"We have agreed that our national security council representatives to meet with each other to discuss what we talked about today."

This means @AmbJohnBolton. Someone who the mullahs are quite familiar with.

This is my THREAD on #HelsinkiSummit where I'll report/analyze all coming & subsequent developements from #Russia's POV:
1. Here's my take on #Putin-#Trump encounter for @ispionline where I argue the summit may have high hopes, but modest expectations
ispionline.it/it/pubblicazio…
2. This is what #Putin heads into #HelsinkiSummit with in terms of #Syria, #Iran: almon.co/32y5
3. #Putin & #Trump will be meet face-to-face around noon (1pm #Moscow time). The leaders have at least 3 hours scheduled for themselves after which they will proceed to another room for working lunch in a broader format with ministers and advisers.

Another excellent thread by @ThomasWictor.
I agree completely that foreign military intervention will lead to disaster in #Iran.
It is not necessary.

While many consider it a controversial issue, I have been very vocal about it.
I don't care if I lose followers by saying this.
#Iran has an opposition coalition that is the sole reliable & realistic alternative entity to this regime.

What a coincidence!
The @WashingtonPost publishes a 2,000-word article raising bogus allegations against Mayor Rudy Giuliani, just ten days after he delivers a speech at an Iranian opposition convention promoting #IranRegimeChange.
washingtonpost.com/politics/giuli…
(2)
Josh Dawsey, Tom Hambruger & Ashley Parker claim Giuliani, attorney & advisor of US President Donald Trump, delivers “paid speeches for a controversial Iranian dissident group,” referring to the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
(3)
These allegations are dictated by #Iran to its chorus of apologists abroad & have never been proven.
However:
“The group is on record as saying that it has never made any payments to any American, a fact later confirmed by the U.S. Treasury Dept.”

"It's time to put the myth of 'separating Russia from Iran' to rest. The evidence shows that Russia and Iran are fast allies, and are more likely to remain so than to separate." Great piece by Shlomo Bolts. jpost.com/Opinion/The-my…
SEPT 2017: @Doranimated and @peterrough wrote of "the deep mutual dependence between the Russians and the Iranians [in #Syria]", and thus the unlikelihood of "truly splitting the two". mosaicmagazine.com/essay/2017/09/…
JAN 2018: "What is clear ... is that there are only two real options: either #Russia has leverage [to pressure #Iran and #Asad in Syria] but doesn’t wish to use it, or Russia doesn’t have leverage." jpost.com/Opinion/The-Ir… v @Ayei_Eloheichem

#THREAD,
#IranUpdate,
#PKK's Iranian branch(#KODAR-#PJAK) published their project for future of #Iran.Mostly is theoretical arguments taken from Abdullah Ocalan's books about history, politics,revolution&democratic nation.
Here are the bullet points: 1/5
*PJAK wants "the rights of all nations in Iran(Fars,Azari,Kurds,Ahwazi Arabs,Balouch etc) in a democratic Iran to be guaranteed&rejects any independence efforts.
*PJAK claims US & Europe want to turn Iran into another Syria which PJAK wants to stand against such efforts.2/5
*PJAK slams reformists/moderates for misleading people and accuses them of being a power thirsty mafia and nothing else.
*PJAK believes those who are asking for a referendum[ such as reformists&Monarchists,@PahlaviReza] want to have a share of power rather than changing Iran.3/5

New evergreen Tweet? "Netanyahu asks Putin to remove #Iran's forces from #Syria."

@AcrossTheBay @JSchanzer & I describe the stakes & provide policy options in @FDD's "Controlled Chaos: The Escalation of Conflict between #Israel & Iran in War-Torn Syria" defenddemocracy.org/media-hit/badr…
The need for our new report and recommendations therein is best summed up two maps indicating today's developments in #Syria:
It's a few hours after Putin & Netanyahu met in #Moscow to discuss the removal of #Iran from #Syria. #Israel responded to the UAV that crossed into its airspace from Syria with strikes at 3 military posts near its border.

On Sunday, the German publication Bild reported that Germany’s central bank plans to turn over to Iranian officials 300 million euros in cash that will then be flown to Iran.
That Iran’s rulers are in need of bundles of cash only highlights how weak their economy has become.

Interesting thoughts by #Russia Defense Minister Shoigu in his interview to Italy's Il Giornale days into #Putin @realDonaldTrump summit:
1."Since US lawmakers experts been calling on #US gov to clarify its #Syria strategy,our country not the only one who does not get it"
2."If there's some basis for #US actions in #Syria,it is too contradictory to be called a strategy.I'd like to recall that initially,it was about defeating #ISIS,then about preventing re-emergence of IS&now to preserve mil presence in to deter #Iran’s alleged influence"
3."One cant help thinking that #US chief objective in #Syria is to prevent situation from stabilizing,prolong the conflict,undermine SYR territorial integrity by creating enclaves not controlled by the gov in Syria’s remote regions.Oppstn received training in US-controlled areas"

This is still my favorite question. Tell them we'd like that in big bills please.
Economics and a nations security are integral. We have not only paid for their defense since WWII, but we've put ourselves at an economic disadvantage too!
