Standing with the People of Iran
by Ted Poe on December 17, 2018 at 11:08 AM
The people of Iran have taken to the streets and continue to protest against the illegitimate regime of the Ayatollah and the mullahs. These protests have taken place in numerous cities now for one year.
The people protest the war-mongering dictatorship, the tyranny of the Iranian Government and its terrorist activities. The people want freedom. However, the mullahs are reacting with crackdowns on the people.
Arrests, beatings, and jailing continues to occur. It is interesting that the majority of these protests are led by women and the young.
Even truck drivers have gone on strike in the protest.
Groups such as the MEK have spoken out against the corrupt Iranian Government and oppression of the people. Further, the Government of Iran has sworn to destroy the United States. The United States should stand with the Iranian people in their quest for freedom from the tyrants of Iran.
As President Kennedy once said: "Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
And that is just the way it is.
