Trump lawyer Giuliani says Iran’s government will be overthrown

(23.9.2018) “It could be in a few days, months, a couple of years. But it’s going to happen,” Giuliani told a crowd at a hotel in Times Square.
Giuliani’s comments were in contrast with the Trump administration’s policy of not seeking a change of government even though it is reimposing sanctions that are crippling Iran’s economy.

Can’t We Just Leave Syria Alone?

Americans should be outraged that Pompeo and Bolton are defending al-Qaeda in Idlib. It’s time for the neocons to admit they lost. It is time to give Syria back to the Syrians. It is time to pull the US troops from Syria. It is time to just leave Syria alone!

Trump snaps back Iran sanctions aiming to change, not topple Tehran, officials say

A senior administration official said that, „our stated policy has not been regime change, it’s been to modify the Iranian regime’s behavior.“
The official, speaking to reporters on a conference call with others from the administration, said that Trump remains open to meeting Iran’s leaders without preconditions.

Giuliani, Bolton Repeatedly Met With Group Formerly Designated a Cult-Like Terror Organization

That group, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, or MEK for short, was designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department until 2012, at which point it was removed from the State Department’s terror list after an intense lobbying effort. The group was on the terror list for good reason: MEK has killed several American servicemembers and contractors; attempted to assassinate a top U.S. general; and attempted to kidnap the U.S. Ambassador to Iran, Douglas MacArthur II.

In 1992, the MEK conducted a terror attack on the Iranian mission to the United Nations in New York, making it one of the few terror groups to have operated on U.S. soil, according to Daniel Benjamin, the former coordinator for counterterrorism at the State Department.

The group has been widely characterized as a cult.

Trump Luminaries At Iranian Jihadi Cult Conference In Paris

(2.7.2018) Many Trump stalwarts have a peculiar, paid position as lobbyists for the People’s Jihadi Organization (Mojahedin-e Khalq), the Iranian expatriate group aiming to overthrow the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Hence we find Rudy Giuliani addressing their annual convention and pledging regime change in Iran.

Giuliani only has experience of two kinds of regime change. Disastrous and more catastrophic.

Mattis pressed on Bolton’s, Giuliani’s support for regime change in Iran

(10.5.2018) Mattis sidestepped questions from lawmakers Wednesday about whether Bolton’s and Giuliani’s vocal support for regime change in Iran has directly influenced the current US strategy, but offered little indication that Trump and his top advisers have reached a consensus on the administration’s long-term vision.

„Our problem with Iran is not with the Iranian people. It is with the regime. But I would let Mr. Bolton and Mr. Giuliani speak for themselves,“ Mattis said, adding that he would prefer not to comment on the specific instances in which both men have pushed for regime change in the media.

Israel Hopes Trump Scrapping Nuclear Deal Could Ultimately Lead to Iran Regime Change

In recent weeks, these two campaigns are merging, and are expected to combine even more closely in the weeks ahead, as can be seen in the Mossad’s operation to steal the Iranian nuclear archive; Netanyahu’s pressure on the U.S. to abandon the nuclear accord; the series of air strikes attributed to Israel against Iranian targets in Syria; and concerns that an Iranian retaliation would ensure another round of fighting that will bring the two sides closer to war.

Macron lobt „perfekt durchgeführten“ Angriff auf Syrien

Frankreich ist ein bedeutender Akteur in Syrien, die Angriffe in der Nacht vom 13. auf den 14 April waren legitim und „perfekt durchgeführt“. – der französische Präsident Emmanuel Macron zeigte sich in einem Interview am Sonntagabend (YouTube, ab 1:46:41) über jeden Zweifel an der Militäraktion erhaben.
Wie häufig zuvor zog er ehrgeizige Pläne aus der Tasche, von denen nicht klar ist, wie sie angesichts der herrschenden Kräfteverhältnisse umgesetzt werden sollen.

How the Syrian American Medical Society Is Selling Regime Change and Driving the U.S. to War

The organization is a USAID-funded lobbying powerhouse that functions with a single-minded determination to stimulate a US-led war of regime change that will place Syrian Islamists in power in Damascus.

SAMS was founded in 1998 by members of the Syrian American exile community, which is concentrated in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Prior to the 2011 armed rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad, the group led several medical delegations to Syria, presumably cooperating with the government to gain access.

Stimmen der Vernunft müssen Eskalation in Syrien Einhalt gebieten

„Die NATO-Staaten und ihre Verbündeten, Israel und Saudi-Arabien, scheinen geradezu wahnhaft entschlossen, den Krieg in Syrien nach über sieben Jahren noch einmal weiter zu eskalieren, um die Lage zu ihren Gunsten zu verändern. Statt den Krieg zu beenden steht militärischer Regime-Change an erster Stelle. Damit wird ein neuer internationaler Konflikt provoziert“, sagte Heike Hänsel, stellvertretende Vorsitzende der Fraktion DIE LINKE. Die Außenpolitikerin weiter:

„Die Bundesregierung stellt sich bei diesem drohenden neuen Krieg in die erste Frontlinie. Bundeskanzlerin Merkel sieht trotz ausstehender Untersuchungen und öffentliche Beweise eine ‚klare Evidenz‘ für einen Chemiewaffeneinsatz und ist sich dabei mit Trump und Erdogan einig. Die deutsche Fregatte ‚Hessen‘ ist praktischerweise schon in einem Übungseinsatz mit einem Kampfverband um den US-Flugzeugträger USS Harry S. Truman Richtung Syrien unterwegs.
