John Bolton advocated ‘immediate regime change’ in Iran when speaking to terrorism-linked Mojahedin group

Published

on

Donald Trump’s scary new national security adviser told a group of Iranian exiles that he favored “immediate regime change,” the Intercept reports.

Bolton, who has close ties to Putin’s Russia, attended a conference of a group called Mujahedeen Khalq, which has been linked to terrorism.

The group, which was removed from the U.S. terrorism list just a few years ago, has invited the former Bush-era diplomat to address the group in Paris. At the rally, Bolton made direct threats to Iran’s government, which will turn 40 next year.

“The outcome of the president’s policy review should be to determine that the Ayatollah Khomeini’s 1979 revolution will not last until its 40th birthday,” he said. “The declared policy of the United States should be the overthrow of the mullahs’ regime in Tehran.”

Bolton has gone to the People’s Mujahedin of Iran rally for more than a decade—you can watch video of his 2016 speech below. The group is considered a terrorist organization by many and has killed civilians in Iran and U.S. soldiers.

It’s perhaps also notable that Bolton is a huge supporter of the failed U.S. invasion of Iraq, which he still maintains was not a mistake.

Now, he apparently has his eyes on Iran.

“Before 2019 we here will celebrate in Tehran,” Bolton told the group.
