London, 12 Jul - The Iranian regime has been trying to exert its control over the Middle East. Its plans to do so are not covert – they are well known. Its neighbours are strategically the most important because they provide the Iranian regime with the manpower needed for its proxies that fight on behalf of Iran abroad.

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.

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.
