About Iran

Since the regime change in December 1979, Iran has transformed into a disruptive force in the Middle East and grown to be one of the major threats to Western Civilization.

Major Players

Ayatollah Khamenei

SUPREME LEADER

Coming to power on June 4, 1989 Ayatollah Khomenei has ruled as the head of state with a brutal dictatorship. Although there have been major protests during Khomeini’s reign, he still proceeds ahead prosecuting journalists, bloggers, and anyone who insults the Supreme Leader or speaks against the state.

The supreme leader is the most powerful political leader in Iran. He serves as the head of state, the commander-in-chief, and has superseding decree and veto power. His power extended beyond the halls of government to include the military, media, and religious centers of Iran. Any elected officials or high ranking officers are vetted first by the Guardian Council, a body controlled by the Supreme Leader.

Ebrahim Raisi

PRESIDENT

Known as “The Butcher of Tehran” President Raoso grew in notoriety after executing thousands of political prisoners in 1968. He is currently under U.S. sanctions and accused of crimes against humanity by the international human rights organizations and the United Nations.

In June 2021, Raisi was elected the President of Iran after running as a hard-lined anti-establishment candidate. Amid widespread voting boycotts, Raisi won in a landslide victory. It is widely accepted that the Guardian Council – and Supreme Leader Khomeini – orchestrated his victory.

Immediately following his election, he used his mandate to take Iran’s ballistic missile program and support of regional terrorist organizations off the negotiation table. Two missing crucial components from the last nuclear deal.

Designated terrorist organization or sanctioned by the United States, United Nations, European Union, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Canada.

Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps

Created after the Iranian Revolution, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is charged with protecting the Islamic republic. That is applied to every facet of life in and outside Iran, “it is also an industrial empire with political clout.” [35]
It’s influence stretches from military to economic, controlling the likes of 100 companies in Iran.[36]

With 250,000 military personnel, the IRGC covers five branches: Basij (internal and morality police), the elite Quds Force, and coverage for air, sea, and ground.

The IRGC is headed by Hossein Salami, who said he was proud of the United States terrorist designation.[37]

Quds Force

The Quds Force (Jerusalem Force) stands out due to its specialization in unconventional warfare and military intelligence in external operations. This force is active in dozens of countries with an unknown size of force.

The long arm of Iran’s covert operations is carried out by the Quds Force.

We will fight them on the global level, not just in one spot. Our war is not a local war. We have plans to defeat the world powers.

Uranium Enrichment Facilities

Iran has disclosed 17 facilities as part of its nuclear program. Of which, this is what we know of the two uranium enrichment plants.

Natanz

The first of Iran’s enrichment facilities, this complex contains 7,000 centrifuges used in enrichment (as last reported in 2009).[38]

In 2021, Iran started enriching using additional advanced nuclear centrifuges–a clear violation of the old deal.[39]

Fordow

Fordow, or Fordu, is the second uranium enrichment facility in Iran. The facility is too small to be used for a civil program, but could produce enough uranium for one bomb per year.[40]

This fully underground facility was disclosed in September 2009, only after first being known to intelligence services.

Under the old deal, all uranium weapons-grade enrichment was barred for 15 years. In 2019 (four years after the old deal went into effect), Iran announced that they started enriching uranium to 5%. Then in May of 2021, the IAEA discovered Iran was enriching uranium to 63% levels, sitting right below the 90% enrichment needed for weapons grade.[41]

Located only 20 miles northeast of the city of Qom, any potential attack could result in civilian tragedy and response.

Iran’s Nuclear Program: Energy vs Weaponization

Even with the Supreme Leader claiming the nuclear program is for energy production, we must not trust Iran. Consensus among intelligence agencies and common sense tell us that Iran is lying.

We are not after nuclear weapons.

PURSUING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

BUT THE FACTS TELL THE REAL TRUTH... IRAN IS

PURSUING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

AMAD PROJECT

A 2018 raid by Israeli Mossad agents uncovered 100,000 documents detailing a secret plan to develop nuclear weapons.

Enriching Uranium

For nuclear energy, uranium needs to be enriched to 3-5% purity[45]
. This was allowed under the JCPOA.[46]

In January 2021 Iran said it’s enriching uranium to 20% purity breaching the 2015 JCPOA. Only four months later, the IAEA discovered that Iran was enriching uranium to 63%, sitting right below the 90% needed for weapons grade.[47]

Iran’s nuclear program is not peaceful. They have continued to lie and hide the truth.

WE MUST STOP THEM FROM OBTAINING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.
