    Three political crises in the Iranian regime and Khamenei’s response with three blank cartridge bullets 

    Three political crises in the Iranian regime and Khamenei's response with three blank cartridge bullets

    By Masoud Dalvand

    Multi shot with blank cartridge bullets on the anniversary of Khomeini’s death!

    Khamenei went to Qom to commemorate the anniversary of Khomeini’s death, pointing out a number of key issues of the regime that the mullahs are confronted with, in a very brief speech referring to various issues.

    Khamenei paid three issues;

    First, the continuation of the uprising and protest movements that are happening every day throughout the country and becoming more and more day after day.

    Secondly, the issue of Iran deal and anger and dissatisfaction with the situation that Khamenei has tried in this regard, in light of his own situation, to exonerate himself and to blame “mullah Rouhani” and his gang.

     

     

     

     

    Third, the issue of the missile program and the regional interference of the mullahs, which these days, under the international pressure, smells of the region’s evacuation from the regime more than ever!

    In fact, these three issues are the most serious problems of the regime at the moment, and the success or failure of the regime depends on the answers that must be given to three issues.

    The uprising and protests of the people

    Regarding the uprising and protests, Khamenei’s words remained the same as the absurdity of all the dictators who repeatedly repeat it and, by imposing protesting people and basically every protest movement outside the borders, try to denying the national identity of the protests and protesters and say that it’s illegitimate, of course in the political culture of the mullahs by putting off a terrorist label to any protest movement!

    At the same time, the mullahs are trying to prevent the movement of people’s protest movements from being violent (which is the natural reaction of the people to government repression), in any case.

    In this speech, Khamenei, referring to the MEK and It’s role in recent popular movements, said that:

    “We know that they are sitting and planning! »

    Khamenei, unable to suppress the uprising of the people and unable to solve the problems of the country, only repeats the same previous exhortation, saying that there are a handful of small and few people coming from other cities and provoking people.

    Khamenei, of course, did not mention why, in this country, every simple protest of a guild immediately turns into a political and security crisis, and a political slogan directly pointing to the regime’s head. And thus, he left the first important point in his speech without any determine of issues, and went with the same slogans and shotted to the next goal.

     

    The reality of the resumption of the nuclear activities of the regime

     The next point that Khamenei said in his speech on the occasion of the anniversary of Khomeini’s death was the issuance of a decree on the resumption of the nuclear activities of the regime.

    Khamenei ordered the preparation to prepare for the 190,000 units at nuclear facilities, and to prepare and even extend the requirements for using centrifuges.

    Khamenei seems to be real shotgun, but with care in the words he chose and his clear indications that we are moving “within the framework” of the Iran deal, it was his second shot with blank cartridge bullet in that speech.

    In that speech, Khamenei immediately added and emphasized, fearing that he would be denied this as a violation of Iran deal.

    “Of course within the framework of Iran deal!”

    But the problem is that, even if the regime so chooses, it will not actually be able to resume enrichment in the dimensions before the Iran deal, as the mullahs destroyed their centrifuges at the beginning of the deal, and if they were to be repaired tomorrow It takes many years to reach the previous level, regardless of whether their own confessions are possible. Therefore, Khamenei’s words in this section were merely a shamrock of the internal use, and for giving morale to his frightened and defeated forces, and nothing more than a blank cartridge bullet firing!

    Maneuver with missile power and regional hegemony!

    Khamenei’s third point was about the regime’s missile power, which said:

    “We shoot 10 missiles against each missile that fires us!”

    As you can see, Khamenei, in the words about the missile, only wants to say the word “missile” and repeat it, not saying that he has not mentioned anything. But in this statement, there is no reference to the type of missile! Because the fights are basically long-range ballistic missiles, not every missile! Khamenei also tried to make a gesture of power and not more!

    Khamenei said:

    “Anyone who fires us a missile, we …”! he didn’t say, where? and who or witch country or the president! wants to fire missile to its regime?

    But with all this, and again in the same hollow gesture of power, it was recalled that it would not be possible for the same hollow speech to cause trouble, because he immediately pointed out that:

    “We do not take excitement and sentiment in the face of the violence of enemies, we do not care about the margins we create for us, and we will not enter the margins!”

    Every observer and every listener, hearing these words, quickly find out how much Khamenei is watching and strives to not speak the excuse! Give the opponent a hand!

    Khamenei spoke only about the regional gestures and spelled out words such as justice and defense of the Palestinian people and resistance, and what he did about Syria and Yemen and what he wanted to do. He did not say anything! While in these areas it’s is talking about the retreat of the regime. Khomeini tried to be somehow innocent! Show off and so, here, too, shot an else blank cartridge bullet!

     Khamenei’s only war bullet firing

     Khamenei, in course of this speech and after all his firing, launched a war warning on the mullahs regime’s president, Rouhani and launched a new round of gang battles and factional wars, blaming all his atomic failures on the head of the Rouhani. And implicitly blamed him as “only the culprit ” in Iran deal.

    The reason for this is also quite clear. Khamenei must find someone who is responsible for the failure of Iran deal and more than $ 100 billion in costs and its consequences in the region.

    But what is clear is that, of course, Rouhani and his gang will not remain silent, they will not leave Khamenei and his gang, and they will throw themselves under the water!

     

     

    But why did Khamenei do that? While he knows well, deepening the gap at the head of his rule will have serious social consequences!

    The answer is clear, Khamenei is well aware that he cannot do anything but he forced to shot again because of all the disasters he has made, and in any case, he must shoot somewhere and someone! Cheaper than Rouhani?! Unaware of the fact that this policy is more dangerous than any alternative due to the internal situation, and will increase the dichotomy at the top of the rule, and a more open field for popular movements in these gaps will be created!

    The fact that right up to now it is turned on and will become even clearer.

    How Iran’s regime is left to choose bad from worse 

    Iran's ballistic missile program is the most important part of the country's nuclear program

    Iran’s ballistic missile program is the most important part of the country’s nuclear program

    PMOI/MEK staff writer

    May 12, 2018 – Iranian regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei has time and again changed his position on the Iran nuclear deal. Now and then he would canvas the accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as a “making of various officials,” attempting to distance himself from any negative consequences. It is now known that all the while, Iranian nuclear negotiators enjoyed his blessing to become completely involved in talks with the “Great Satan,” read the United States.

    However, following U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the JCPOA, all of a sudden Khamenei claimed, “Didn’t I say you can’t trust their words?”

    Khamenei intends to place the entire JCPOA blame burden on the faction of Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani. All the while, in the same speech he said he has told them “to get true guarantees before entering any agreements.”

    “I don’t trust these three countries either,” Khamenei added referring to the United Kingdom, France, and Germany.

    These contradictory remarks of seeking “true guarantees” while having no trust in the European Troika all signal the very grave crisis the Iranian regime is engulfed in. As a reminder, last year Khamenei boasted of torching the JCPOA and shredding it to pieces if the U.S. exited the accord. Now Khamenei and his regime are literally on their knees begging the Europeans.

    “It is now crystal clear that his second JCPOA will be very negative in comparison to the first round. Even if the negotiating team seeks guarantees from the Europeans, which [Khamenei] believes is unlikely, this second JCPOA will be nothing like the initial version,” according to the state-run Sharq daily.

    This means the Europeans will not be able to resolve anything for Iran’s regime. Khamenei understands this better than anyone. Having no other option is the reason he refuses to acknowledge this subject.

    In an attempt to save face, Rouhani recently said, “The JCPOA will either remain or be terminated. If it stays, it will remain in full. Otherwise, everyone will say goodbye.”

    It is worth noting that the Iranian regime’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has time and again, “It is all or nothing.”

    At the end of the day, the Iranian regime must choose between the return of crippling sanctions and the pre-JCPOA circumstances under the UN Charter’s Chapter 7 conditions, or succumb to demands and enter new negotiations with bloodied knees. This will lead to further and increasing demands, targeting the very essence known as the Iranian regime.

    Alireza Jafarzadeh Presentation on Iran’s Ballistic Buildup 

    Washington, DC – On Wednesday, May 9, 2018, the National Council of Resistance of Iran-U.S. Representative Office (NCRI-US) hosted a panel of leading subject-matter experts to discuss Iran’s burgeoning missile program and its ties with the nuclear weapons program.

    The new 133-page book by the NCRI-US, Iran’s Ballistic Buildup: The March Toward Nuclear-Capable Missiles, was also presented by Alireza Jafarzadeh, the deputy director of the NCRI’s Washington Office.

    The book, which has dozens of charts, pictures, satellite imageries, and maps, provides key details on crucial infrastructure of Tehran’s ballistic missile program.

    Ambassador Joseph DeTrani, former Director of National Counter Proliferation Center and Special Adviser to the Director of National Intelligence;

    Dr. Olli Heinonen, former Deputy Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and head of its Department of Safeguards;

    Ambassador Robert Joseph, former Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security.;

    and Matthew Kroenig, Associate Professor, Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, Deputy Director for Strategy, Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security at The Atlantic Council, were the other panelists.

    Rebeccah Heinrichs, Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute moderated the event, after Ali Safavi of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the NCRI welcomed the panelist.

    Alireza Jafarzadeh, who is also the author of The Iran Threat, explained the strategy framework designed to ensure the survival of Iran’s ruling regime and its core elements. He said, “To remain in power, the regime in Tehran functions on two foundations. One is internal suppression and the other is crisis making and export of terror abroad.

    The second pillar has three components itself which complement each other and are all part and parcel of the larger strategy for survival. One would not work without the other. First component is sponsorship of terrorism.

    The second element is Iran’s nuclear weapons program. And the third element is the ballistic missile program. For Tehran, these are critical issues for its survival; that’s why it has never abandoned any of them, and it never will.” Exposing the details of the inner working of the regime’s Aerospace Industries Organization, the Hemmat Missile Industrial Group, and Aerospace Force of the IRGC, Mr. Jafarzadeh stated, “there are 15 sites associated with the Aerospace Industries Organization and 27 sites associated with Aerospace Force of the IRGC.” He provided the names, specific functions and their internal codenames, command and control structure, and location of these sites. Jafarzadeh concluded his presentation by saying, “The Iranian regime right now is engulfed in large scale protests and uprising that started last December and is still continuing.

    The economy is in shambles, currency is plunging further, and there’s extensive institutionalized corruption. So, the long-term and lasting solution to the threat posed by Tehran is internal change. The people inside Iran are calling for change by the people of Iran. That’s when we’re going to see those three threats resolved.”

    Iran’s Ballistic Buildup: The March Toward Nuclear-Capable Missiles Paperback – May 8, 2018

    This unique manuscript surveys the regime’s missile capabilities, including the underlying organization, structure, production, and development infrastructure, as well as launch facilities and the command centers operating inside Iran.

    This report has been complied based on intelligence and information obtained by Iran’s main organized opposition movement, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), from inside the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and other regime military institutions in charge of missile development.

    The book exposes the nexus between the regime’s missile activities and its nuclear weapons program, including Tehran’s ties with Pyongyang.

    Contrary to the spirit of the July 2015 nuclear deal, the clerical regime increased the number of tests of ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear load. This, coupled with illicit exports to other rogue actors in the Middle East, is prompted by the regime’s domestic weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

    Death of Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA) or the next cups of poison? 

    Death of Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA) or the next cups of poison

    By Masoud Dalvand

    On 12 January, Donald Tramp extended the Iran deal or JCPOA, for another 120 days.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump gave the Iran nuclear deal a final reprieve on Friday but warned European allies and Congress they had to work with him to fix ”the disastrous flaws” in the pact or face a U.S. exit.

    Is this an achievement for the mullahs’ dictatorship?

    Looking at the successive news that was released at the same time as the announcement of this, the response appears; deadly news for the Iranian regime, including:

    The US officials have said, Tramp has renewed with dissatisfaction.

    -Trump insists this is the “last time” to extend the deal.

    He said: “Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal,” Trump said in a statement. “Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal’s disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw.”(Reuters 12 January)

    US Treasury Department boycotted 14 agencies and other brokers include chief judge of Iran regime. The statement has said: Treasury Sanctions Individuals and Entities for Human Rights Abuses and Censorship in Iran, and Support to Sanctioned Weapons Proliferators.

    Mullah Sadegh Larijani, the head of the judiciary, the head of the Gohardasht Prison, The cybercrime council for censorship, the IRGC cybersecurity, are on the sanctions list.

    At the same time, the United Nations has said that the regime has violated Yemen’s arms embargo.

    The United States also emphasized that the deal should include a missile program and regional intervention of the Iranian regime. The issue that the European governments have come up with and even added human rights violations. (Of course they say that these are out of the JCPOA, but they should be investigated)

    Therefore, it is clear that the extension of this time of JCPOA,(in addition to new sanctions), only for the regime has the result to be forced, to retreat into missile projects, regional interventions and human rights abuses. Namely, in fear of death (abolition of JCPOA), It must commit to suicide (drinking the next poison)!

    And, of course, the regime couldn’t does any maneuver or deception this time (the line that the regime was trying to advance and delay) because the president of the United States has emphasized “last time” to extend the deal.

    That is, until the next 120 days, or the next poison, or death!

    The Danger of Overlooking Iran Regime in North Korean Missile Problem 

    The Danger of Overlooking Iran Regime in North

    NCRI – The North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile launch in the early hours of Wednesday morning sent shock waves across the world and many are now considering how best to deal with the threat posed by Kim Jong Un.
    After all the missile could have hit anywhere in the continental United States if it had been launched at a lower trajectory and US Defense Secretary James Mattis has revealed that the launch shows that North Korea could now hit “everywhere in the world, basically”.
    However, we could be overlooking a key element in this equation: Iran.
    Alan Dershowitz, a constitutional law scholar and political analyst, is considering how the US’s action on North Korea will impact on another rogue nuclear power in the near future.
    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz

    On ILTV, Dershowitz said“I think this is not about North Korea at all. I think this is all about Iran, and it’s all about how to make sure, 10 years from now, we’re not facing this crisis with Iran.”
    He continued: “Iran already has the capacity to deliver nuclear weapons, and once the Iran deal terminates, as it will in eight or so years, they will be allowed to spin centrifuges sufficient to create a nuclear arsenal capable of reaching all over the world, and certainly capable of reaching American allies in the Middle East and in Europe.”
    He said that the US cannot afford to make the same mistakes with Iran that it has with North Korea, because the ruthless ambition of the Iranian mullahs makes them far more dangerous.
    He said: “The big difference is North Korea is not hegemonic in its interests. It just simply wants to survive. It’s creating a nuclear arsenal in order to prevent it from being destroyed and the regime toppled, whereas Iran has hegemonic interests, which they’ve already manifested from Lebanon to Syria to parts of Iraq, and clearly, they have their eyes on the Gulf States and the Sunni Arab world. And so whatever we do with North Korea has to be done with an eye to Iran. The goal has to be to make sure Iran never becomes a North Korea.”
    Indeed, each country has already had a failed (or failing) nuclear pact with the West which failed to contain their dangerous nuclear weapons programme.
    They have also collaborated on the North Korean nuclear programme and when the so-called sunset clauses run out in the current Iran nuclear deal, the Regime will already have the information to make a nuclear weapon, this highlights another way in which Iran is more dangerous than North Korea.

    Trump’s new policy: Solidarity with Iran’s people 

    An Iranian woman walks past a mural of the Iranian flag in Tehran on October 14, 2017. (AFP)

    US President Donald Trump decertified the Iran nuclear deal on Friday and referred the case to Congress. It remains to be seen what measures await Tehran, especially considering the highly intensive quarrel that brought us where we are today.

    What is certain, however, is that this marks a major US policy shift vis-à-vis Iran, having impact across the flashpoint Middle East.

    Ever since the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower back in the 1950s and since the CIA-backed the 1953 coup d’état against the democratically-elected government of Prime Minister Dr. Mohammad Mosaddegh, Washington’s policies have either directly or indirectly supported the ruling regimes in Iran and against the Iranian people’s better interests.

    Trump, however, has for the second time in less than a month stated his solidarity with the Iranian people. Iran has violated the very spirit of the agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and the entire accord is against US national security interests, according to Trump.

    The Arab world reacted positively, with Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE and Bahrain promptly supporting the US landmark decision.

    This is in line with April’s Riyadh conference where Trump called on the Islamic world to recognize the threat of Iran’s meddling in their countries and take the necessary action. Considering the importance of the Middle East for Iran, rest assured Tehran is receiving these messages loud and clear.

    Opposition voice

    The Iranian opposition, National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), known for its credibility after blowing the whistle on Tehran’s nuclear ambitions back in 2002, also welcomed Trump’s strategic policy shift.

    The new US policy condemning flagrant human rights violations in Iran and “to deny the Iranian regime and especially the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) funding for its malign activities,” and opposing “IRGC activities that extort the wealth of the Iranian people,” are very necessary, according to NCRI President Maryam Rajavi.

    Trump’s acknowledgment that under Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei the regime “oppresses its people, abuses their rights” and “exports violence, destabilizes its neighbors, and sponsors terrorism abroad,” is a recognition of the Iranian regime’s illegitimacy, she added.

    The Trump administration has executed a widespread strategic alteration, ending years of appeasement and rapprochement that provided Tehran with unjustified concessions. This includes the 1997 designation of the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) at the Iranian regime’s behest. Following a 15-year legal battle the PMOI successfully obtained a US federal court ruling ordering the Obama administration to end its unjust terrorist designation.

    US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley speaks about the Iran nuclear deal at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, on September 5, 2017. (Reuters)

    Undiplomatic, to say the least

    Iran’s lobbies and appeasement advocates have gone the limits to restrain the Trump administration from adopting fierce measures against Tehran.

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s words depicted the devastating blow felt by the regime in its entirety, resorting to completely unorthodox and undiplomatic remarks for a president.

    “Trump’s speech consisted of nothing but vulgar language, allegations and bogus remarks,” Rouhani saidin an unorthodox reply. “Trump apparently doesn’t know the JCPOA is not a bilateral document to act however he wishes,” he added. “…the IRGC is not just a military unit, but the Guards are in the hearts of [the Iranian] people,” he also said in a speech at a government cabinet meeting, ending any notion of being a so-called “moderate” or “reformist.”

    This is further indication of how Tehran desperately needs the JCPOA to remain intact, and how Trump’s remarks of having the authority to unilaterally exit the deal has placed senior Iranian officials on their tiptoes.

    Technical Input

    Trump ordered the Treasury Department to “fully sanction” the IRGC for its support of terrorism. There can be a debate about the exact meaning of this measure. Does this place the IRGC under sanctions? Is this entity now considered a terrorist organization? What is the meaning of “designating” an entity as a terrorist body?

    In the United States there is a law and an executive order covering terrorism. All organizations designated as terrorist organizations are blacklisted as such based on this law and/or executive order.

    The legislation was adopted by Congress back in 1996, based on which the State Department, in coordination with the Treasury Department, were provided the authority to designate foreign organizations as terrorist entities, also known as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO).

    In 2001 following the 9/11 attacks, former US president George Bush issued Executive Order 13224, providing the State and Treasury departments the necessary authority to accelerate the process of designating, sanctioning and restricting such bodies as “foreign terrorist organization” or a “global terrorist.” The authority provided in a presidential executive order is equal to that of a congressional legislature.

    On Friday, Trump ordered the Treasury Department to designate and fully sanction Iran’s IRGC in its entirety based on Executive Order 13224. Generally, these blacklists impose financial restrictions on the designated individuals or entities.

    There are slight differences the two State and Treasury blacklists, as the main aspects are very similar, including confiscating all assets of the designated individual or organization, and placing them under the authority of the US judiciary. The State Department’s FTO list also imposes immigration restrictions.

    A handout picture provided by the office of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani shows him delivering a speech during a conference entitled “Implementation of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) a new chapter in Iran’s economy”, on January 19, 2016, in Tehran. (AFP)

    The path forward

    The “Corker-Cardin” bill overseeing the JCPOA for Washington provides Congress 60 days to decide the next step following Trump’s announcement on Friday, indicating the Iran nuclear deal is against U.S. national security interests. Trump has called on Congress to intensify this legislation to include certain additional restrictions.

    Trump in fact emphasized if existing loopholes in the accord are not resolved, as president he enjoys the authority to single handedly revoke the agreement in its entirety.

    This development goes far beyond designating the IRGC and has a more drastic impact than merely decertifying the JCPOA. The Trump administration has announced a completely new policy.

    White House fact sheet released prior to Trump’s speech specifically explains how a certain US policy pursued for 15 years vis-à-vis Iran and the Middle East was wrong, and how this administration has decided to no longer repeat those mistakes.

    The Iran engagement policy was very effective and acted as a significant pillar in safeguarding and maintaining the Iranian regime in power. That is exactly why from the very day Tehran has sensed a major Washington policy change, all of Iran’s lobbies and advocates are going to the limits to prevent this now realized transition.

    Iran had resorted to a variety of threats, even to take military action against US forces in the region, in the case of the IRGC being designated as a terrorist organization.

    Now that the entire IRGC is designated as a terrorist organization, we are seeing voices against this development, and Iranian lobbyists attempting to downgrade this turn of events, claiming it is merely sanctions and far different from a terrorist designation.

    The truth is that a policy that provided crucial support for Tehran through these years is witnessing major changes. This is rendering enormous concerns in Tehran. What needs comprehending is the scope of Trump’s major policy transition.

    As he emphasized, “In this effort we stand in total solidarity with the Iranian regime’s longest suffering victims: Its own people.”

    Iran’s Nuclear Core: Uninspected Military Sites 

    Uninspected Military Sites-NCRI-US

    Iran’s Nuclear Core details how the nuclear weapons program is at the heart, and not in parallel, to the civil nuclear program of Iran. The program is run by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) since the beginning, and the main nuclear sites and nuclear research facilities have been hidden from the eyes of the United Nations nuclear watchdog.

    The manuscript details the function of the civil program as a support and cover structure for the nuclear weapons program, which has over the years, changed names and modified structure, but was neither ceased, nor had its key experts changed.

    The main entities associated with the construction and development of the facilities and equipment are primarily associated with the IRGC, to maintain top secrecy.

    The nuclear weaponizations sites are primarily located in large military installations, equipped with large and extensive underground tunnels and facilities shielding the sites from inspections, as well as having the ability to quickly move things around if and when needed.

    Universities have provided valuable access to research facilities, cover to hide the real objective of the program, as well as means to obtain dual use technology or attacking experts.

    Some of the top nuclear experts who have played a crucial role to advance the program have senior ranks in the IRGC.

    Since the 1980s until now, the program has been operated under the direct control and supervision of the highest commanders of the IRGC.

    The book includes details of the uninspected sites, satellite imagery of the locations, details of the organization tasked with the weaponization of the nuclear program named, Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research, known by its Farsi acronym SPND, as well as key experts of the program.
