It’s neither moral, legal, nor good for Americans for the U.S. government, including Members of Congress, to support violent "regime change" in other people’s countries. As Republican Rep. Ron Paul said: the U.S. needs to get out of the business of trying to pick the leaders of other people’s countries. U.S. “regime change” policies have caused endless, costly wars that have harmed the interests of the majority of Americans, and have harmed the interests of the majority of people in the countries whose governments the U.S. overthrew. Are the majority of Americans better off today because the CIA overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran in 1953? Are the majority of Iranians better off? Wouldn’t it have been better to let Iranians figure out by themselves what kind of government they wanted to have, instead of having the CIA organize a coup that has embittered relations between the U.S. and Iran until today?
Look how upset so many Americans have been about the idea that the Russian government might have interfered in the 2016 election in the U.S. Wouldn’t it be reasonable to assume that most Iranians would resent the idea that the U.S. government should pick their leaders?
Unfortunately, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, despite her “progressive” reputation in some quarters, has not yet won this basic insight. Pelosi is backing the MEK, the same controversial Iranian exile group that John Bolton and Rudy Giuliani are promoting. This group was on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations until Hillary Clinton removed it following a well-financed pressure campaign that involved paying U.S. politicians to support the MEK. [The petition photo shows the aftermath of a political assassination in Iran by bombing carried out by the MEK.] The MEK has been widely denounced as a personality cult which doesn't allow its members to leave. And it fought alongside Saddam Hussein’s forces during the Iraqi invasion of Iran. That’s why independent analysts see the idea of promoting the MEK as “the Iranian opposition” as completely preposterous – the MEK has no popular support in Iran.
Nancy Pelosi’s support of the MEK isn’t new. But her actions are happening in a much more dangerous context now. MEK supporter and Iran regime change advocate John Bolton is Trump’s National Security Advisor. MEK supporter and Iran regime change advocate Rudy Giuliani is another close Trump advisor. By standing with John Bolton and Rudy Giuliani, Nancy Pelosi is helping lay the groundwork for Donald Trump to start a direct U.S. shooting war with Iran on behalf of his Saudi friends.
Urge Nancy Pelosi to distance herself from Trump’s dangerous “regime change” policies in Iran by signing our petition.
