London, 10 Jul - United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently said, much to the disdain of Iranian officials, that the US needs to start working with “those elements inside of Iran that would lead to a peaceful transition of that government”. This also surprised the international community to hear such an explicit statement.

The US has been helping with democratic change for a long time, but no progress has been made. The Islamic Republic is ruled by the Supreme Leader who is not only elderly, but who was also sick with a serious illness recently. A transition of power will probably lead to the entire system collapsing.

London, 8 Jul - Change is coming for Iran with developments recently accelerating. The international community is realizing that appeasement doesn’t work.

July 14th marks the beginning of the second year of the Iran nuclear deal. Iran received a reported $100 billion dollars but has failed to make meaningful changes in people’s lives. Tehran has instead allocated these funds for their involvement in the Syrian war, and to meddle in affairs across the Middle East.

London, 6 Jul - During his campaign Hassan Rouhani, recently elected to a second term, routinely invoked “violence and extremism” rhetoric in opposition to his leading opponent, Ebrahim Raisi, a hardliner candidate. However, Rouhani demonstrated during his first term that he is not a ‘moderate’.

Rouhani is seen as a veteran regime insider who “was a senior security official during the systematic execution of 30,000 political prisoners in the summer of 1988, many of whom were supporters of the main opposition Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK),” according to a Forbes article, by Tom Ridge, homeland security secretary and former Pennsylvania governor.
