Amid the COVID 19 Crisis, Why is Seeking Regime Change in Iran Important

Amid the COVID-19 Crisis, Why is Seeking Regime Change in Iran Important?
Change is on the way and the world must stand behind the policy of regime change
Over 50,900 people have died of the novel coronavirus in 330 cities across all of Iran’s 31 provinces
No one but the regime is responsible for this catastrophic status quo
Regime officials must be held accountable for this disaster in Iran
WHY?
They ignored warnings despite knowing about the COVID-19 outbreak in Iran
The regime misled the public to prevent the virus from impacting the Feb 21 sham parliamentary elections
Khamenei tried to downplay the coronavirus crisis:
“In comparison to other problems, this is very small.
This can be an achievement. If we have these achievements, the disaster will become a blessing for us.”
The 8-year war between Iran and Iraq was also described by Khomeini as “a gift from God.”
The Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) is the cause of COVID-19 spread in Iran.

Mahan Air, controlled by the IRGC, continued passenger flights into China well into the month of March.
The regime knew about the COVID-19 outbreak even in January 2020.
The regime was fully aware of the coronavirus outbreak
but the regime’s cover-up resulted in the spread of the virus to many cities of Iran and foreign countries.
The Iranian people believe that the regime is the source of all their problems within the past four decades.
And they want to overthrow this regime.
Time is up for the ruling mullahs’ theocracy.
The Iranian people and their organized resistance have the capacity and ability to bring about change.
