Regime Change Is Coming to Iran...

Despite easing down, sporadic protests have been ongoing across Iran and have been widely energized by words and support from President Donald Trump – and the hope for more substantial support. Despite its vast oil and gas resources, the Iranian economy is in shambles.

More than three decades of rule by the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) has not only failed to achieve the security and well-being of its people, it has ensnared the nation in a stifling theocracy where the rights of the governed are routinely violated for the benefit of the governing.

The revolution of 1979 that brought down Mohammad Reza Shah in the hope of instituting a democratic government was quickly usurped by a religious autocracy.

For the past 40 years, the Islamic Republic’s response to the legitimate peaceful protests and demands of the people has been an iron fist in the form of heartless beatings of the demonstrators -- both men and women -- there have been arrests, torture, and rape of some in secretive compounds, and even shooting the unarmed in the streets, a standard stock of dictatorships, yet the surest way of swelling and solidifying the ranks of the dissenters.

The time has arrived to end the Mullah’s reign of terror. Unfortunately, both the New York Times and the Washington Post who have offices in Tehran, and other liberal news media are not reporting accurate stories from inside Iran. Millions of Iranians from all walks of life are gearing up to end this horrific nightmare.

President Donald Trump has a historic mission to redeem a flawed policy followed by his predecessor, President Obama. In 2009, people in the streets of Tehran were chanting

“Obama are you with us or with them?” Regrettably, President Obama stayed with the mullahs, which emboldened them to massacre the protesters.

The internal dynamics within Iranian society has drastically altered. Iranians no longer fear the brutal Mullahs and demand regime change. These protests have become mainstream. Even students from an elementary school in a remote village dare to say: “Death to Khamenei.”

These Islamic rulers are aware they are slowly losing complete legitimacy (if they ever had any legitimacy at all), and will be toppled, in a violent confrontation with similarly sized demonstrations. There may be a handful of regime officials who are struggling for reform, but the entire Islamic regime is aware of the looming threat from their citizenry.

The mullahs’ regime still exists because the U.S. and its allies have failed to pursue a workable strategy to end it. It is, at best, appeasement to make deals with the sworn enemy of the United States of America. How clearly and how often do the mullahs have to proclaim their irreconcilable and irreversible hostility toward the U.S. and Israel? These mullahs believe their own delusions of grandeur. They think that they can win their brinkmanship and they do firmly believe that they will outsmart America and rest of the world, and will have their way. In the process, they are more than willing to do whatever services their objective, by any and all devious means. Dealing with the mullahs brings to mind the "peace in our time" that Neville Chamberlain brought to England by his deal-making with the...

  1. There was never a hope for democracy. It was the communist vs the religious autocracy, any hope for democracy was lost in the bloodshed. Read Whirlwind by James Clavell, it's fiction but he got it right. And yeah, I was there for a while.
