Protests across Iran are gradually ramping up and there are concerns on the part of the Iranian regime that these will turn into another major uprising. At the same time, there are concerns on the part of the Iranian Resistance, the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI), and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), that the Iranian regime will crack down hard on the protesters in the same way as authorities did during the uprising in November last year in which more than 1,500 civilians were brutally killed, according to MEK.

Reuters confirmed in a special report on December 23, 2019, about the deadly crackdown on November nationwide protests in Iran the death toll of 1500 that was announced by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) on December 15, 2019. Political prisoners and protesters are still being targeted and treated brutally.

The Deputy Direct of the NCRI’s US Representative Office Alireza Jafarzadeh reminded the participants of the conference that, in just a few days, there will no longer be the conventional arms embargo, meaning that the Iranian regime is free to arm itself as it pleases. He emphasized that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has already said that the country is going to be able to buy weapons from “anyone we wish” and also sell them to “anyone we wish”.

Former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Ambassador Eric Edelman, said that although sanctions against Iran are important and effective, they cannot be solely relied upon to get “the right outcome”.

Director of the Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign Policy Studies and Vice President of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for International Studies at The Heritage Foundation, Dr. James Jay Carafano, said that the United States is involved with the issues in Iran because of its global responsibilities and interests. He said that peace and prosperity are important and that there can be no place for terrorism and instability.

Dr. Carafano emphasized that Iran is the greatest threat in this regard and that sanctions so far have been effective. He said that sanctions should continue for as long as they need to and reiterated that this is not a punishment towards the people of Iran – something that the people of Iran recognize.

The Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) Director of Foreign Policy Mr. Jonathan Ruhe emphasized the dangerous nature of Iran’s nuclear program, making it clear that there are no genuine or peaceful reasons for piling so many resources into it. He advised that the next administration address some of the major flaws in the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and that sanctions are maintained and pressure is increased.

A senior scholar at the National Institute for Public Policy and Professor at Missouri State University, Ambassador Robert Joseph, said that we are now at a “critical crossroads that will shape the region’s environment for a time to come”. He said that three administrations have failed to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons race and that its support of terrorism makes Iran a huge threat.

Ambassador Joseph said that the United States must learn from these mistakes and realize that the regime is untrustworthy and will not keep up its end of the bargain in any agreement.
