What Is The Trump Administration's Policy Towards Iran?

The Trump administration has just concluded a global conference held in Warsaw meant to ratchet up pressure on Iran. More than 60 nations attended although several major countries — particularly the Europeans -- refused to send their top diplomats. Vice President Pence set the conference tone by referring to the Iranian regime as “evil” and accusing them of planning a new Holocaust. While the conference was going on, another conference was being held in the same city, a conference organized by the Iranian opposition group, the Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK. The MEK, apparently funded by the Saudis, is committed to the overthrow of Iran’s clerical regime. The highlight of their conference was a speech by President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. While President Trump claims regime change is not his goal in Iran, Giuliani’s speech signals otherwise.
