The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out… without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.” ~  H. L. Mencken

With Veiled Regime Change Threats, Trump and NeoCons Blasted for Exploiting Iran Protests – via commondreams.org:

Trump wrote on Twitter before 5am: “Iran is failing at every level despite the terrible deal made with them by the Obama Administration. The great Iranian people have been repressed for many years. They are hungry for food & for freedom. Along with human rights, the wealth of Iran is being looted. TIME FOR CHANGE!”

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a notorious war hawk who infamously joked about bombing Iran a decade ago, tweeted: “The U.S. stands with the brave protesters who yearn for freedom, peace, and an end to corruption in Iran.” Nuclear deal foe and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley praised the “Iranian people [who] are now finding their voice.” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who once called Iranians “cheaters and liars,” said the protests show the Iran nuclear deal isn’t working and that he would lay out what a “better deal would look like and … would stand with the Iranian people the entire time.”

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert tweeted that “Secretary Tillerson reiterates the United States’ deep respect for the Iranian people. We call on all nations to stand with us in demanding the regime respect their basic human rights.” The tweet came less than two weeks after it was revealed that Tillerson told State Dept. employees that allies and adversaries should get different treatment for human rights abuses.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and serial advocate for bombing innocent people and overthrowing foreign governments he dislikes John Bolton said clearly that regime change should be the goal of the protests, and praised Trump for “taking the side of the demonstrators.” Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu, meanwhile, even wished “the Iranian people success in their noble quest for freedom.”

Just a couple of days into the new year and the deplorable, war-mongering jackasses are already paving the way for their destructive plans.
