Pentagon Chief: Iranian people are ‘fed up with’ revolutionary regime


US Defense Secretary James Mattis has declared that Washington has “no beef” with the people of Iran, merely their government. He added that the people of Iran had proven that they “aren’t buying” what Tehran is selling, as evidenced by the large-scale protests that broke out in the last days of 2017, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

 

Speaking to Pentagon reporters, Mattis voiced his support for the protests just as many other top White House officials, including US President Donald Trump, have done. "I think it's very important that we stand up and say that we understand the Iranian people. Our beef, if we have one, is not with the Iranian people. It is specifically the same regime that the Iranian people, clearly, are fed up with as well," he said.

 

"So the most important thing, I think, is it's up to the Iranian people what form of government they have, and to say we believe that they should have the kind of government they want, And, right now, the regime senses that they've got a lot of people who aren't buying this revolutionary regime's act."
