Reading Jake Sullivan’s latest @TheAtlantic piece, I wonder why such individuals & outlets are so alarmed about regime change in #Iran.
theatlantic.com/international/…
Do they benefit in Tehran's mullahs remaining in power?
They may claim not, yet actions speak louder than words.
(2)
Sullivan’s entire argument is based on the fact that sanctions, and more generally a firm policy against #Iran, will bear no fruit. Taking a look at the past 15 months, in contrast to the #Obama years, much of Iran’s malign behavior has taken a nosedive.
(3)
Sullivan praises himself (& thus the #Obama team) of negotiating the #IranDeal. What he & others like him refuse to explain is the fact that the people of #Iran, #Syria & other countries across the region are paying the price of their “achievement” with their very lives…

Responding to @jrezaian’s piece after the #IranDealWithdrawal, the fact that you “lived in #Iran for seven years” as a so-called journalist (knowing the nature of Tehran’s regime) and seeing your work, we are certain of your #Iran apologist background.
washingtonpost.com/news/global-op…
(2)
@jrezaian claims the regime will respond “with the behavior of a bully, by ratcheting up pressure on the people it rules over.”
He doesn't mention how #Obama’s JCPOA gave #Iran the green light to continue its execution inside the country & havoc across the region.
#Hypocrisy
(3)
Interesting how @jrezaian claims there “won’t be any attacks on Israel” and on the very same day #Iran’s IRGC-associated proxy groups in #Syria launched rockets towards the Golan Heights.

In his take @SinaToossi claims the “Clinton and Obama administrations” thought about the Iranian people, conveniently forgetting how Clinton did nothing in the face of #Iran’s 1999 students uprising crackdown & Obama turned his back on Iranians in 2009
atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/iransour…
(2)
@SinaToossi blows his cover by mentioning “regime change,” making clear his mission, being a Tehran apologist, of devoting his “journalism” to preserving a regime with a grotesque human rights dossier in power.
Over 3,000 executions under #Iran's “moderate” Hassan Rouhani.
(3)
@SinaToossi voices his main concern, being the #IranProtests, by attempting to downsize the 2017/2018 uprising to “parts of Iran.”
Reminder: Over 142 cities were scenes of unprecedented revolt, prompting the regime to kill more than 50 protesters & arrest over 8,000.

When @JZarif says, "#Iran never raced towards a bomb, nor will it race towards a bomb," rest assured it is the exact opposite.
We will realize how Tehran sought nuclear arms for decades. For a country sitting on an ocean of oil & gas, a "peaceful" nuclear program is meaningless.
A very telling cartoon about #NorthKorea & #Iran, as Pyongyang signals indications to set aside its nuclear weapons/ballistic missile program. This is leaving Tehran as now sole target of the international community's soon-to-come pressures.
For those who describe #Iran's FM @JZarif as a "moderate" or "reformist"

"We will exit the NPT. / We will launch advanced enrichment," he says in response to Trump's May 12th #IranDeal deadline.

For those unfamiliar with #Iran's regime, the sign reads:
"Shovel - Fighters used shovels to divert Malyutka and TOW wire-guided anti-tank guided missiles."

This is a "memorial site" of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War & Tehran's propaganda machine at work.

You be the judge...
For those unfamiliar with #Iran's regime, this mullah says:
"If our football/soccer is not the first in the world, it means we haven't taught & promoted religion good enough."

The title & first paragraph of this article indicates the main concern of this writer: #RegimeChange.
Q: Why would someone be worried about regime change in #Iran, unless they have interests in such a regime remaining in power. Interesting
aljazeera.com/indepth/opinio…

Thread
The term “anti-Iran” is interesting. Has #Iran’s regime left anything to be supportive of? Butchering innocent people across the #MiddleEast, gross #HumanRights violations back home, wasting billions on an unnecessary nuclear program, ballistic missiles & terrorism.
(2/21)
And talking about #NorthKorea being “disinclined” shows how #Iran is terrified of losing Pyongyang in its trek to obtain nuclear weapons & the ballistic missiles. Now Tehran is all alone. But why is this writer so worried about it? Again, a matter of common interest?

In response to @Najmeh_Tehran’s recent @FinancialTimes piece on @AmbJohnBolton & #Iran opposition PMOI/MEK, it should be noted that she is based in Tehran, and to remain there she most likely needs to please the regime with such “journalism,” or else be kicked out.
Thread
(1/15)
.@Najmeh_Tehran still believes #Iran’s regime can undergo “reform” from within (ft.com/content/47cb0d…) & describes ruthless torturers such as Ahmadinejad as “populists” (ft.com/content/ab75c7…).
She’s just another writer providing pretexts & saving face for Tehran.
(2/15)
She describes the #MEK as “banned.” This coalition is only “banned” in #Iran, which is quite a compliment considering Tehran’s atrocious human rights record & support for dictators & terrorists such as Assad, the Lebanese Hezbollah, Iraqi militias & Yemen’s Houthis.

At @OrgIAC #FreeIran lunch at @PressClubDC, Rudy Giuliani opens his remarks by saying that the #IranProtests “are not sporadic. They’re obviously well organized.” He thanks French president Macron for refusing to accede to Rouhani’s demand he eject @Maryam_Rajavi from France.
At @OrgIAC lunch, Rudy Giuliani notes the #IranProtests are taking place all over the country, with all demographics and ethnic groups participating. “What unites a not-very-united Iran is opposition to the regime. Opposition to Khomeini, Khamenei, Rouhani.” #FreeIran
At @OrgIAC #FreeIran lunch, Rudy Giuliani has high words of praise for @nikkihaley, who has been strong in her support for #IranProtests. “The administration should let Nikki Haley go free. They should let her do what she wants.” He adds, “She’s one tough lady.”
