State Department uses social media targeted at Iranian citizens to pressure 'corrupt' regime


breaking world news iran

(Worthy News) - The Trump administration on Tuesday made a direct appeal to the Iranian people to reject what it called the “corrupt religious mafia” running their country, rolling out a targeted social media campaign to paint the government in Tehran as an oppressive force more focused on exporting violence and funding terrorism than caring for its own population.

In a professional-quality video produced by the State Department and posted in Farsi to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other platforms, top administration officials used the long-shuttered Iranian Embassy in Washington as a backdrop to excoriate Iran’s revolutionary ideology and push for radical change.

High-level sources inside the administration tell The Washington Times that they see a major opportunity to drive a wedge between the leadership in Tehran and its citizens by hammering home Iran’s working relationship with al Qaeda, its funding of Hamas and Hezbollah, and its willingness to offer sanctuary to deadly terrorists.

  1. But it's evil, immoral, and/or unethical when Russia does it to the USA?

    Now that it's all out in the open, just how long has the USA been doing it to NKorea? Then we r surprised, shocked, enraged out foes been doing right back at us?

    What's wrong with this picture?

    Anyone know the definition of the word "self-righteous."
