Giuliani: Trump is 'committed to' regime change in Iran

Source: Politico



05/05/2018 06:31 PM EDT

Rudy Giuliani pushed for regime change in Iran on Saturday, saying President Donald Trump is "as committed to regime change as we are."

It's "the only way to peace in the Middle East" and "more important than an Israeli-Palestinian deal," Trump's newest attorney in the ongoing Russia probe and former mayor of New York City told reporters after giving a speech to the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights in Washington.

The speech was hosted by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities, a group that aims to promote democracy in the Islamic Republic and was supportive of the December protests there.


At one point in his speech, Giuliani, who has served as an informal adviser to Trump and had been under consideration to be his secretary of state, pretended that his notes were the Iran nuclear deal, ripping them up and spitting on them....................................

22. I remember sitting in front of the TV...

watching "the game of life" unfolding before me. According to the announcers numbers up to 125 were almost guaranteed to be drafted. Whew! My birthday is November 13. I MADE IT PAST 125! Number 126........November 13. Thank Dog for student deferments. I felt bad because a lot of my friends were going, two of which died in that hell-hole, for nothing more than old men's folly and stupidity. In times of peace sons bury their fathers. In times of war fathers bury their sons.

Especially after Thursday's fiasco.

This farce administration is actually contemplating war with Iran! That is truly insane.

9. Re: "Will your kid die for Trump's ego"

First, it should be: “Will your kid die for GOP chickenhawks that make money off of our wars”? Cheney, Bolton, Prince, DeVos - all profit from war. It’s not just this president. Do we forget so quickly that GW Bush lied us into a war he put on a credit card?


But second,

Silly question. The only kids that will die for the GOP lies and profiteering are poor kids. Our military has slowly become a military of the poor and working class. If you’re poor or working class, the GOP doesn’t give a shit about you.


Ps. THIS GOP child is certainly not going to die in any war.. he’s too busy making shirts on Daddy’s dime. And now he can spend even MORE time on yachts after his dad got a $1 billion tax cut, thanks to the GOP.

16. So he is saying Trump wants to start a war?

Probably before the election I would bet. Americans love to support their leaders in war time.

Donny if you start a war, draft your fucking family first, Republican congress's family members next and the registered republicans.

That's a Rand Paul quote from a few weeks ago for anyone playing at home.

21. Words of war from the administration.

There's no other way to put it. Iran would have to stupid not to gird itself from invasion, and that includes joining the nuclear club. We never bother countries in that club.

25. The group he was talking to is linked to the terrorist cult MEK

From Talking Points Memo:

I mentioned a few days ago that just last March Rudy Giuliani went to Albania to speak before an Iranian exile group which is widely regarded as a cult and was for many years a US-government designated terrorist group. Giuliani is a long-time recipient of money (for speeches and lobbying) from the MEK and its various front groups. (There’s no word yet on what he was paid if anything for the March appearance.)

This evening we have news that Giuliani spoke in Washington today before a group called the Organization of Iranian-American Communities and promised that President Trump (for whom Giuliani now works as lead personal lawyer) remains “committed” to regime change in Iran. I don’t know if Giuliani was paid for this appearance as well. But few if any of the news reports note that the OIAC is a front group for the MeK, the cult group noted above. (See this report also which similarly confirms the group’s front group relationship to the MEK.)

"We" support regime change as much as he does?? Nah, fuck that. You and Mr Mustache(Bolton) can take that shit and shove it! If you are so convinced about this, maybe you two shitstains should sign up for service! Oh right, I'm sure you both will have excuses but sending someone else's kid is cool. Fuck you, Rudy

29. Rudy's opportunity to go down in history as "America's mayor" is going to be covered by Trump shit.

As much as he was taunted for all his sentences being made up of "a noun, a verb, and 9/11," Giuliani's leading role at the time of our country's biggest crisis in modern times was going to be his claim to fame -- the first item in his obituary. Now it will be that he was just another of IQ45's lawyers.

Everything and everyone Donnie Two Scoops touches is tainted by his stink. I'm surprised he can find anyone who wants to work for him. Clearly, the more significant law firms in Washington want to have nothing to do with him -- they have more to lose than to gain.
