A necessary reminder:

Various media outlets associated to #Iran's regime, such as @Tasnimnews_Fa, claim the Trump administration is taking measures to invalidate Iran's dollars.
tasnimnews.com/fa/news/1397/0…
(2)
#Iran's objective in spreading such rumors is to install fear among the already panicking public & encourage them to sell their US dollars.
(3)
Question:
Which government in the world would take measures to invalidate their own currency outside of their borders?

Furthermore, how do you even identify which dollars are located inside #Iran?

This is very important.

"Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, in unusually pointed language, called on President Hassan Rouhani to do more to prop up the rial after the currency fell to a historic low this week in anticipation of renewed U.S. sanctions."

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

You know the situation has become extremely intense when #Iran's #IRGC are calling on @HassanRouhani to take action about the currency plunge.

The IRGC controls much of the economy, answering only to Iranian Supreme Leader @khamenei.

“The unique and extensive backing you benefited from in past weeks shouldn’t preclude you from taking revolutionary actions to control prices and prevent the enormous increase in the price of foreign currency and gold,” said IRGC chief Mohammad Ali Jafari in an open letter...

Question for @wendyrsherman:
How much has #Iran's regime paid you to resort to such low measures & parrot their demands?

Here's a thought.
Stop doing the ruthless mullahs' bidding & stand alongside the people of Iran who are seeking #IranRegimeChange.

Shame on you if you don't.
One comes to this firm conclusion that @wendyrsherman is a die-hard #Iran apologist when the regime's state media cites her tweet in slander against US President @realDonaldTrump that has adopted a firm policy against Tehran's mullahs.
entekhab.ir/fa/news/421632…

#Shame
To @wendyrsherman:
@Tasnimnews_EN is the mouthpiece of #Iran's #IRGC Quds Force.
This "outlet" is rejoicing your tweet against US President @realDonaldTrump.
The more you defend your flawed #IranDeal, the more suspicious we become about your relations with the mullahs regime.

#BREAKING

US President Donald Trump offers to meet with Iranian President Rouhani, without preconditions

Knowing #Iran's regime, they wouldn't dare enter such a meeting with Trump, knowing the end results would be humiliating.

Look at North Korea.

foxnews.com/politics/2018/…
.@SecPompeo supporting US President Donald Trump's move today makes me certain this was an initiative adopted in last Thursday's NSC meeting chaired by @AmbJohnBolton.
Mark my words: #Iran's regime is on the ropes, especially with #IranProtests escalating.
I think this is a good time to remind everyone about @JZarif saying the next US President (now Donald Trump) not being able to nix the #IranDeal "with a stroke of the pen."
Well, Zarif, Trump did.
And much more.
Now, are you man enough to sit down & talk?

-describes US President Donald Trump as a "gambler"
-"we're very close to you, where you don't expect it"
-"this war will result in the destruction of all your assets"😂😇
Good for laughing 😂
In response to Suleimani's remarks, Iranians are sharing this image of IRGC dispatched for wargames to portray the "military might" of Iran's regime.
We should know mullahs are not only that bad player, but also big liars.
The threat of mullahs is a bluff that comes from their fear of #Trump serious actions.
#Iran's regime only understands a firm policy.

Once again @jrezaian in his latest @WashingtonPost piece proves he is only concerned about the interests of #Iran’s regime, and not the people.
washingtonpost.com/news/global-op…
(2)
“At the event, called 'Supporting Iranian Voices,' Mike Pompeo signaled a US commitment to support efforts to undermine Iran’s clerical regime.”
@jrezaian signals his concern, the mullahs' fate, not mentioning how they’ve brought suffering to the people of Iran & the region.
(3)
@jrezaian says he wanted to see “which Iranian voices would Pompeo be supporting?”
Yet nowhere in his piece does he mention how @SecPompeo specifically said to the Iranian people that the Trump administration hears you and stands with you.

1/Heated rhetoric between Washington & Tehran over recent days culminate in an ALL CAPS threat from #Trump directed at #Iran's president #Rouhani (flash-back to his tweet in Jan for N.Korea's Kim Jong Un on "bigger & more powerful" nuclear button). Trajectory deeply problematic:
2/#Trump's tweet response to #Rouhani saying yesterday:"America should know peace with #Iran is mother of all peace & war with Iran is mother of all wars".Rouhani left open prospect for diplomacy although SL #Khamenei said on Saturday further talks with US "useless" "major error"
3/In Middle East context Rouhani is right that Iran-US conflict is"mother of all wars".If you thought #Iraq invasion was bad: military conflict with #Iran would be devastating & costly:Iran roughly 4x size & 3x population size of Iraq in 2003.Niether Iran nor US interested in war

Good article by @ajaltamimi, underlining the extent to which #Iran/#IRGC has integrated its influence within #Syria's state, not separate/parallel to it.

His argument against "think tanks" though, targets a specific sub-set or orgs, not all by any means.

joshualandis.com/blog/the-think…
#pt: To anyone opposed to #Iran's expansive position in #Syria who looks honestly at the issue, the days of "rolling back" or "defeating" #Tehran in #Syria are long gone - though containment of its strategic threat/s is a perfectly feasible objective, if it's genuinely pursued.
#pt: The most credible #Iran threat to raise is not its extensive influence over militia, but its strategy of deploying/growing strategic military assets - directly & indirectly - in #Syria to threaten the interests of the U.S & its allies.

- That's a whole separate discussion.
