Mullahs Strategic Depth is Collapsing
In an interview with Fox News, Mark Dubowitz, head of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, said that by spending nearly one billion dollars a year to support its terrorist proxy forces, the Iranian regime is the worst state sponsor of terrorism in the world, expanding its malign influence throughout the globe.
He added that the Iranian regime is a military dictatorship that has occupied Iran; Iranian people hate this regime. This regime has spent billions of dollars in supporting the brutality of Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The Head of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies concluded that the Iranian authorities try to make nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) for delivering them, which beyond terrorism, is a prime threat.
Bryan Hook, U.S. State Department’s special representative for Iran, emphasized the Washington determination in continuing sanctions against the Iranian regime. He added that the Iranian regime has spent 16 billion dollars for its paramilitary groups in Syria and Iraq. Hook believes that sanctions against the Iranian regime are a reflection of the Iranian regime’s measures for destabilizing the region. He added that Washington continues sanctioning the Iranian regime until this regime accepts negotiations for a nuclear deal.

Stressing that sanctions have weakened Iran’s economy compared to two years ago, Mr. Hook said that sanctions have led to the reduction of Iranian oil exports from 2.5 million to 120 thousand barrels a day.
With mounting unrest in Iraq and Lebanon, the Iranian regime witnesses its “Strategic depth” collapsing. It seems that spending billions of dollars in Iraq and Lebanon has been in vain. The biggest blow to Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the regime and Qasem Soleimani, head of the terrorist Quds Force, who spent Iranian wealth on the Hezbullah in Lebanon and paramilitary forces in Iraq, while keeping eighty percent of the Iranian people under the poverty line.
According to @Gobadi, the growth of #Iran-ian regime, proxy forces can be traced back to the 2003 #Iraq War, which “opened the doors to the regime as a gateway to the rest of the region.”#FreeIran #WeSupportMEK @USAdarFarsi https://t.co/0AUGU6fBLs

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said in 2004 that while their nuclear program has been a strategic means for the mullahs’ survival; however, the regime’s interference in Iraq is a hundred times more dangerous than its nuclear program.
The world has paid a heavy price for the disastrous strategy of the US in the Middle East past years. Millions of people in Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen suffered from Iranian terrorism in the region.
Iranians, as well as Iraqis and the people of Lebanon, reject the Iranian regime’s interference.
The religious dictatorship ruling Iran is gripped in profound crises. There is no question that the regime’s days are numbered. In contrast, the democratic alternative is flourishing.
The MEK and Iranians, as well as Iraqis and the people of Lebanon, are determined to get rid of the mullahs building free democratic countries to guarantee peace and co-existence in the region.
