Iran, July 2, 2019 - Having lived and experienced firsthand the truth of the Iranian regime, the people of the neighboring nations to the ruling nations of the ruling mullahs in Tehran are in a far better position to judge and review the record of four decades of the Islamic Republic of Iran than many so-called pundits writing elegant essays in prominent outlets.

There is no doubt that sanctions will overthrow the mullahs’ regime. The goal of U.S. sanctions against the Iranian regime is to stop its [current] behavior and prevent Tehran and its proxy forces from continuing their terrorist activities.

Terrorism is part of what this regime is because it has hijacked the Iranian people’s [1979] revolution and has been stepping on the people’s throats for 40 years. Without terrorism and the support for it, the Iranian regime cannot live… Therefore, it isn’t realistic to expect the [Iranian] regime to forego terrorism, not with the recent sanctions that included Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and his office and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, and not with any other sanction that the U.S. President signs. There is no chance that the Iranian regime stops its terrorist activities and or the transfer of weapons to proxy forces across the region.

The only way to put an end to Tehran’s terrorist meddling in the region and throughout the world is through regime change once and for all.

If the 12 conditions raised by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are respected by the Iranian regime, the mullahs will be contained within their borders and cease to export their radical ideology of Islamic fundamentalism.

The Iranian regime financially supports its proxies across the Middle East. Tehran is even threatening its own population with these foreign militias. For instance, after the recent floods across Iran, fearing widespread protests, Iranian officials dispatched their proxies to Iran. This shows how deeply the Iranian regime is depending on these foreign militias.

The Iranian people deplore this regime. This is evident through continuous protests and activities by resistance units and resistance councils inside Iran associated directly to the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). This goes parallel to a huge demonstration outside Iran against the regime. The latest of these demonstrations was on the 15 and 21 of June in Brussels and Washington, respectively, where demonstrators asked the international community to support the Iranian Resistance to overthrow the Iranian regime.

We are talking about a regime that doesn’t balk at sacrificing one or two million of its citizens. This is a regime that hasn’t built anything, so it isn’t worried about it being destroyed.

The best-case scenario for Iran’s neighboring countries is that Khamenei is left with no option but to drink from the “chalice of poison” and accept peace. This is a very effective and damaging weapon against the [Iranian] regime. Meanwhile, it bears the least risks for the Persian Gulf countries.

When Tehran decides to confront sanctions with war, Persian Gulf countries and their allies will most likely be defending themselves and their interests without regard for the results and consequences. No one wants war. The international community is realizing that the Iranian regime is the aggressor and all parties are ready to defend themselves against Tehran’s malign activities.
