Introduction — July 1, 2018
U.S. proxies in the form of ISIS (otherwise known as ISIL, Islamic State or Daesh) were roundly defeated in Syria and the U.S. is loathe to confront Iran militarily directly. If only because it might end up in a long and bloody quagmire with no obvious resolution in sight. Just as it now is in Afghanistan.
So the U.S. is now driving for regime change in Iran through economic means.
Tehran is aware of this and only yesterday the Ayatollah Khamenei warned about Washington’s designs.
It remains to be seen whether they will work but make no mistake, the U.S. and its controllers in Israel and elsewhere want Iran neutralised by any means possible.
Hence this website anticipates that we will be hearing more from various Iranian dissidents and exile groups. Such groups will be bankrolled by the U.S. because rather than using its own forces, who might be defeated, or proxies like those in Syria, who were defeated, the U.S. plans on stirring civil unrest to accomplish this.
Sanctions and economic pressure will be an integral part of this.
Readers will also note how the rally reported on below was attended by “refugees and young eastern Europeans who had been bussed in … in return for a weekend trip to Paris”.
This is how America now pursues its foreign policy, through subterfuge and deceit, and this website anticipates that we will hear much more about unrest in Iran in the coming weeks and months. Ed.
Rudy Giuliani calls for Iran regime change at rally linked to extreme group

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, addressed a rally staged by an extreme Iranian opposition group in Paris on Saturday, calling for regime change in Tehran.
Giuliani spoke to the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an umbrella coalition largely controlled by the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MeK), which was once listed as a terrorist organisation in the US and Europe and is still widely viewed as a Marxist-Islamist cult built around the personality of its leader, Maryam Rajavi.
“We are now realistically being able to see an end to the regime in Iran,” Giuliani told a crowd of about 4,000, many of them refugees and young eastern Europeans who had been bussed in to attend the rally in return for a weekend trip to Paris.
“The mullahs must go, the ayatollah must go, and they must be replaced by a democratic government which Madam Rajavi represents,” Giuliani said. “Freedom is right around the corner … Next year I want to have this convention in Tehran!”
The former New York mayor, who became a cybersecurity adviser in the White House before being named as Trump’s personal lawyer in April, is one of a long line of American conservative hawks to attend the NCRI annual conference. Another prominent guest on Saturday was Newt Gingrich, a former House speaker and a close Trump ally.
In his speech, Giuliani said the fall of the government in Tehran would be brought about by economic isolation.
“When the greatest economic power stops doing business with you, then you collapse … and the sanctions will become greater, greater and greater,” he said.
