Money adventures of the MKO and the bloodthirsty security advisor

The Middle East has been set in fire during in the last two decades due to the clashes between US-sponsored terrorists and the states of the region. By the withdrawal of Donald Trump from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), his newly-elected National Security advisor longs for another proxy war, this time in Iran using terrorist cultists of Mujahedin Khalq (MEK, MKO, PMOI, the Cult of Rajavi).

On the eve of this year’s gathering of the Mujahedin Khalq in France, while Bolton was supposed to offer the MKO more hope for regime change in Iran, he seems to have retreated from his previous position. As Bolton was widely criticized for his last year’s speech at the so-called grand gathering of the MKO in which he openly called for regime change in Tehran, he said on Sunday that this is not the Trump administration’s current policy.

“That’s not the policy of the administration. The policy of the administration is to make sure that Iran never gets close to deliverable nuclear weapons,” Bolton said on the ABC program. [1]

“I’ve written and said a lot of things over the years when I was a complete free agent,” Bolton said when pressed on the issue of regime change in Iran on CNN’s “State of the Union”. He admitted that he is not a decision maker in the US administration. “The circumstances in I’m in now is that I’m the national security adviser to the president,” He said. “I’m not the national security decision maker. He (Trump) makes the decisions and the advice I give him is between us.” [2]

Bolton’s recent comments on Iran indicates how unbalanced are the supporters of the MKO. In 2015, Bolton wrote an op-ed in the New York Times calling for air strikes on Iran’s nuclear facilities. And in 2016, Bolton called for regime change while he was reportedly under consideration to be Secretary of State. As he confesses, he has said a lot of things. Particularly, in response to large amounts of dollars that the MKO has poured in his pockets, he has said all the things the group loves to hear.  The most significant thing was his speech at the group’s gathering where he said:

“There is a viable opposition to the rule of the ayatollahs, and that opposition is centered in this room today.  I had said for over 10 years since coming to these events, that the declared policy of the United States of America should be the overthrow of the mullahs’ regime in Tehran. The behavior and the objectives of the regime are not going to change, and therefore the only solution is to change the regime itself. And that’s why, before 2019, we will celebrate in Tehran!” [3]

One of many critics of Bolton in the American media, Caitlin Johnstone of Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity writes: “Bolton, who is so stupid, crazy and evil that he remains one of the only high-profile individuals on this planet who still insists that the Iraq invasion was a great idea, spoke about the need to prevent the Iranian government from achieving “an arc of control” through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. He decried the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), claiming that Iran was still a nuclear threat under the existing agreement, and spoke glowingly of aggressive sanctions against Tehran.” [4]

Johnstone clarifies that how dreadful is Bolton’s choice to alternate the Iranian government. “Also known as the Mojahedin-e Khalq or MEK, a group of a few thousand members who vocally oppose the Iranian government,” he describes the MKO. “The MEK is widely considered a cult, using very cult-like methods of indoctrination including exerting control over the personal and sex lives of its members and forcing them to go through weekly “ideological cleansings”.” [5]

As Johnstone puts, “the president’s bloodthirsty National Security Advisor” and other advocates of the MKO lead the regime change agenda under the stimulus of the multi-million-dollar campaign of the group. “The MEK reportedly has weirdly deep pockets which have enabled it to spend millions of dollars rehabilitating its image in recent years, and to pay out sizable fees for panelists and speeches by experts willing to advocate in favor of its regime change agenda,” he writes. [6]

The fact that almost no one in the paid campaign of the MKO supporters brings up the cult-like nature of the MKO, its violent past and its unpopularity among Iranians indicates that they are totally motivated by the filthy dollars of the group laundered into their pockets via European Banks.
