Let's talk about #FakeNews @CNN's latest manipulative piece about #Iran.
edition.cnn.com/2018/08/16/mid…

This is enough for me to realize the entire piece is full of lies.

If Iranian President @HassanRouhani is a "moderate" as @CNN claims, why did the world witness the enormous crackdown of the Dec/Jan uprising spread across over 140 cities throughout #Iran?

If he is a "moderate," how would CNN explain this?

#Iran’s Leadership Has No Solutions, The People Know It
In the Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei makes all the key
decisions and takes a public stance on all vital and strategic issues regarding
#Iran

Not a day goes by that #Iran’s officials and parliament members don’t talk about their concerns over the unstable state of the society and their fear of #IranProtests
“Do not be worried at all with regard to our country’s situation. Nobody can do a damn thing”, @khamenei_ir said in one of his speeches during the past weeks

Let’s talk about Paul R. Pillar’s recent Atlantic Council piece on #Iran:
“Sixty-Five Years On: Iran Regime Change Advocates Haven’t Learned from Coup”
atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/iransour…
(2)
His very first sentence is a lie:

“The Trump administration’s policy toward Iran aims for regime change.”

A simple Google search tells us so.
reuters.com/article/us-ira…

Yet the fact that Pillar launches his article with such a sentence makes me, as a reader, very suspicious of his entire objective.

With my knowledge of #Iran’s regime, "regime change" is EXACTLY what they’re terrified of.

This landmark 40-minute Iran nuclear revelation of Natanz & Arak sites by @NCRIUS on #ThisDayInHistory Aug 14, 2002 is well remembered by the Ayatollahs for preventing them from getting the Bomb, which they needed as guarantee for their survival. c-span.org/video/?172005-…
The #IAEA immediately asked to inspect the sites, Tehran dragged till October, then delayed again & finally IAEA was scheduled to visit Natanz on 21 February 2003; #MEK network in Iran found out that Iran intends to show all Natanz but not bldg where centrifuges were installed.
On 20 Feb 2003, Ms. Soona Samsami and I, in a press conference, called Tehran's trick, showed the building location of the centrifuges, urged inspections of entire Natanz. IAEA inspected the pilot centrifuge facility in Natanz; the trouble started for Iran's repressive rulers.

@jabdi & @SinaToossi of the #Iran apologist/lobbyist group @NIACouncil published a piece in @LobeLog criticizing U.S. President Donald Trump sanctioning #Iran.
lobelog.com/trumps-sanctio…

Their main argument hinges on the Iranian people suffering from sanctions.

Of course, these #Iran apologist won't bother mentioning how the Iranian people have been crushed under the mullahs' rule for nearly 40 years now, with public hangings, floggings, limp amputations...

Their main objective is revealed here:

"...Pompeo and Bolton have flattered fringe and extremist Iranian opposition groups."

They're worried about #IranRegimeChange.
