Speaking on PressTV’s "Middle East Today" program on Saturday evening, Dr. Mohammad Marandi, the head of North American Studies at Tehran University said, "The Bush administration has never shown any evidence to show in any way that Iran’s nuclear energy program is anything but peaceful."
He asserted that the United States is utilizing a militia group it currently labels a terrorist organization in an attempt to strike Iran. In collusion with this terrorist group, the Iran Policy Committee, formed in 2005, is a pressure group that aims to influence U.S. government policy towards Iran. The IPC fervently believes that regime change in Iran should be the policy of the Bush government.
The IPC much creative suggestion is removing the Iranian-opposition terrorist group Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MKO) from the State Department Foreign Terrorist Organizations list. The committee then suggests the U.S. government arm and train the group in Iraq for insurgency operations within the Islamic Republic.
"The United States sees itself as being somewhat exceptional in the international community," Marandi said, "it allows itself to support terrorist organizations that have killed thousands of Iranians on the streets of Tehran and other major cities. The MKO spied for Saddam Hussein during the war. These terrorists were and are stationed in Iraq, in Europe and the United States."
Marandi said this is very counterproductive, "It allows people to see the extent of American hypocrisy. This is a very dangerous game the Americans are playing."
