President Trump's remarks that the shooting down of an American drone was a mistake and probably not intentional could have damaging consequences for multiple reasons. This sends the wrong message to the regime and its allies, as Supreme Leader Khamenei may feel assured that Iran's military deterrence is fully established and the US will make similar decisions in future.
In a recent Twitter survey, 85% of 8,638 participants considered the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) the “enemy of the Iranian people.”
The export of the Islamic Revolution is an enduring priority for the Iranian regime, ensuring its long-term enmity towards the US. Therefore, no amount of appeasement towards Tehran by Democrats in Washington or their allies in academia will change this reality.
On the condition of anonymity, a source close to the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) with inside information about the group informed the Apadana Chronicle that the organization is having significant financial difficulty
As both the Europeans and Democrats seek to thwart Trump’s pressure on Tehran, Obama’s deceptions demonstrate the illegitimacy of a deal that must be scrapped.
Iranian-Americans comprise a respectable and respecting community of broad spectrum of beliefs and persuasions. Dubious organizations like NIAC and foul-mouthed extremists like Aslan do not represent them.
It is up to the Persian national polity to reconstitute itself and fight for the only thing that is at stake for what has ensured so far its historic existence: the survival of an ancient, old and exhausted country in a fast-and-furious century where disruptors are in charge and disruption is a way of life and survival.
As if going through the successive stages of grief, the reactions of NIAC "talking heads" to the tanker attacks were displayed in a phased manner. Not one blamed the IRGC for this act of sabotage that could have caused loss of lives and destruction of the ecosystem.
Two years ago, the Alavi Foundation was convicted of acting as a front group for the Iranian regime. The Foundation has financed and installed Iran-friendly professors and curricula at 41 universities in the United States.
Ensuring that the regime is compliant with international norms requires dismantling of the IRGC, which is essentially synonymous with stripping the regime of its identity and legitimacy. Perhaps the only way to guarantee the regime’s compliance with nuclear activities, as well as other issues of concern, it to dismantle the entire mullah regime and replace it with a secular, democratic leadership that abides by international standards.
