"Regime Change in Iran Is Inevitable"
An Interview

Pipes' views on everything Islamic.


From the article:

Quote:
Global Review: What about regime change in Iran?

Daniel Pipes: It is inevitable, I just do not know when. As in Tunisia, a single spark – perhaps a petty government aggression or a bakery without bread – could set it off. For this counter-revolution to succeed, however, a leadership with ideas must emerge.


I believe that our leaders and decision makers (President/VP, other members of the Executive Branch, Congress, military, etc) should not be talking (at least publicly) about "regime change". The term has acquired negative connotations, and as we have seen in places like Libya, regime change can and often does fail with horrible consequences.

Our leaders should be able to indicate which countries that we will have diplomatic relations with, and with whom we will conduct business. That country's citizens can then draw their own conclusions and decide how they should react (vote that regime out of office if it has a democratic system of government, or revolution if it does not). If the people like their dictatorship, then they should be able to keep it. ;-)
It should be the decision of a country's population who shall lead.

That is quite a good point. Don't announce "regime change" because it often takes a while and then we look inept and powerless.

Simply leave Iran and the PRK (and others) off the list of "Nations Respective of International Norms" or some such verbiage....and then let the CIA and locals solve it. ;)

Yesterday's opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem marks a peak emotional moment for anyone wanting a secure and prosperous Israel; in that spirit, Donald Trump has been hailed as "the best thing that has happened to Israel in a long time."
