Iran: Washington Relies on the “Fifth Column”

The analysis of the latest developments around and in Iran shows that the United States and their closest satellites in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia and Israel) are actively trying to undermine the country's political stability, most, to influence Tehran's foreign policy as much as possible and to restrict its activity in the foreign policy arena. It is precisely in view of this Washington's policy that active measures are being taken in Syria and Iraq to close the “Shia corridor” and make Iran leave Syria.

In an attempt to destabilize the domestic political situation in Iran, Washington has begun to actively use the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, more commonly known in the West as the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK). In January 2009, the European Union removed the organization from the list of designated terrorist groups, and so did the USA in 2012. Now is the time to actively engage the MEK in the struggle against the Iranian regime.

Given the reputation of the MEK, it is clear that the Iranian people will never allow a terrorist organization (traitor to Iran) to become a legitimate representative of the state in the West, even if the current regime is overthrown.

At the same time, today the most important element of US foreign policy is to get the desired results within a strictly determined time frame, which would correlate with other elements of Washington's “big strategy”. There is little time left to resolve Iran's issue as one of the major players in the world energy market, and Washington is planning, by all means to further increase its pressure on the Islamic Republic.
