Here’s the former tank commander Mike Pompeo, Trump’s neocon secretary of state, addressing the Iranian people over Voice of America—or more accurately, the voice of the CIA.
The U.S. has great respect for the people of #Iran, and I believe it’s important for us to hear from them directly. So I asked the Iranian people to send me questions. I received more than 100,000 questions. Go to @USAdarFarsi to see my answers to many of them. pic.twitter.com/oFyOKmkqdT

Probably the most absurd statement here is that Pompeo promises to “partner with the Iranian people” in the effort to starve them to death through medieval sanctions.
On Wednesday, the Trump regime signaled it is ready to put a Marxist cult-of-personality terrorist “on the table for new Iran leadership.”

National Security Adviser John Bolton has also voiced support for the group [MEK], in part because they represent an organized group with the aim of taking down the current Iranian government. That’s not a judgment on the nature of their organization, so to speak, or on the fact that they were included on a State Department list of terrorist groups until 2012.
Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MEK) or (MKO) is a brutal totalitarian organization accused of crimes against humanity in addition to mistreating its own cult members. If it manages to rule Iran, we can expect thousands of executions on par or worse than those committed by the tyrant Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the late Shah of Iran overthrown in a popular revolution.
“According to overwhelming evidence the former militant group has turned into a repressive sect far removed from the respectable image the representatives of this group display when visiting the European Parliament,” a statement issued by European political groups declared in 2011 following remarks made by MKO sympathizer and Vice-President of the European Parliament Alejo Vidal-Quadras.
