Pressure can work on the Iranian Regime. There has been, for more than a decade, a curious line of argument that pressure upon Iran is counterproductive
The toxic propaganda he conveniently promulgated via American social and mainstream media undermined democracy in the US and was detrimental to the welfare of the Iranian people. He deceitfully presented to the American media a beaming façade for Islamofascism.
Mullahs' cheat-and-retreat may will no longer work. The Khomeinist system is going through its deepest crisis with widespread corruption, administrative ineptitude and internecine feuds weakening its claim of legitimacy against a background of growing popular dissent. It is time to declare the JCPOA dead and buried.
It is quite possible that the Iranian regime considers its provocations a prelude to another nuclear negotiation. The regime obviously want to escape from the box that they are in, and Trump shouldn’t let it.
It’s important to remember there’s a huge disconnect between the Ayatollah and his henchmen who rule the country, and the Iranian people. Reza Pahlavi, the son of the late Shah of Iran, has been an outspoken proponent of a democratic Iran.

Dr. Hooshang Amirahmadi,once at the forefront of the Iranian regime lobby, attended the anti-NIAC rally. His presence generated a considerable degree of controversy.

No one wants an all-out war with Iran. Americans have no interest in invading and occupying another Muslim country — least of all Iran. Its rich culture and sophisticated populace provide grounds for hope that we can have cordial relations with Iran in the future. But the current impediment to cordial relations, and the reason nuclear weapons would be intolerable, is the regime. It is one of the world’s most despicable governments, and it is incorrigibly anti-American.
Regime apologists who have taken “exile” in the West claim that President Trump is an impediment to diplomacy between the US and the Islamic Republic. Khamenei claims negotiations with the US is forbidden by the Quran. How to be Iranian is this bewilderment?
When we say "regime change," we're talking about giving moral support to the Iranian people against a regime of greedy, fascistic religious fanatics that is oppressing them. This can be done in a whole variety of ways, starting with making them know we care about them and have no interest in talking to or negotiating with their oppressors who just want to play for time.
