Tensions between the United States and Iran have been heating up in recent weeks. A major conflict looked set to start until U.S. President Donald Trump decided to call off a retaliatory strike at the last minute.

Trump showed restraint in calling off a confrontation after the Iranian regime shot down an unmanned U.S. drone and then continued to brag about the cost of the damage it had inflicted on “the enemy”.

The executive order that US President Trump signed this week has sent new shockwaves through the theocratic dictatorship by imposing another round of sanctions on Iran aimed at supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The sanctions appear to specifically target Khamenei, along with foreign minister Javad Zarif and eight senior commanders of Navy, Aerospace and Ground Forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps — itself recently listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the Americans.

The Iranian rally goers, who came from 40 states, marched from the State Department to the White House chanting, “Change, change, change. Regime change in Iran”

On Monday, Donald Trump met one of the demands of the Iranian-American community by putting sanctions on Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and a whole host of his cronies, something that the Iranian Diaspora had advocated for in Washington DC on Friday.

Of course, the most important demand of the rally – regime change in Iran – will take longer to accomplish, but Trump will not be the one to do it. It’s not that the US couldn’t, but that it is the Iranian people’s right to depose the malign mullahs that have wreaked havoc on their country.

“When you want to live in a cave, when you want to fight the whole world and export the revolution to everywhere, you have to accept hardships, not just for 14 years, but for much longer than that."
