I keep saying, if the human rights activists really do care about Iranians, they have to demand an end to the Iranian regime’s pursuing of nuclear weapons.
Once they achieve that status, like N.Korea, they will really come down hard on their own people. We haven’t seen the full weight of the Mullahs coming down on protesters yet.
Donald Trump warns Iran ‘world is watching’ as he condemns arrest of protesters
Donald Trump condemned the arrest of protesters in Iran, telling Tehran that “the world is watching” as officials reported fresh demonstrations over the country’s struggling economy.
Fifty-two people were arrested in Iran’s second city Mashhad on Thursday, the first day of the protests, which also took place in other areas and spread to the capital Tehran as well as Kermanshah the following day.
“There are many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with the regime’s corruption and its squandering of the nation’s wealth to fund terrorism abroad,” the White House added in a statement.
“The Iranian government should respect their people’s rights, including their right to express themselves. The world is watching,” it said.
