Iran Dissidents Greet Pompeo Speech With Renewed Calls for Overthrow of Tehran Regime

Thousands of opponents of Iran’s Islamist regime have taken to social media in reaction to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s speech on Sunday declaring solidarity with the Iranian people.

Pompeo told an audience at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library in Simi Valley, CA., that in the light of recent anti-regime protests, along with “forty years of regime tyranny, I have a message for the people of Iran.”

Pompeo continued: “The United States hears you; the United States supports you; the United States is with you.”

One Twitter user inside Iran responded by telling Pompeo, “We have a rich country and we are poor, we have tourist attractions and we are isolated.”

“We are peaceful but we live under the shadow of war,” the tweet continued. “We are not hostile to other countries, yet we are under sanctions. And finally, we do not have what we should have, and we do have what we should not have.”

The tweet concluded: “The cause of all these troubles is the Islamic Republic.”
