Actually, I could say that popularity of America among Iranians is declining very fast.
Because the regime portrays these things very loudly and clearly among ordinary Iranians and prepare them for a mental warfare against the US.
I doubt the Bush admin is not aware of such meetings or they should be permitted by Homeland Security Dept or FBI.
If there were other options than MEK and Komalar that could have greater influence to replace the current Iran regime, America will be happy to support them. However, I have seen no other popluar groups that may uprise and tak over the government. If you know any, other than MEK, Komalar, and Khatami's faction, let us know. Otherwise, there are no other groups that America can support to replace the current regime.
That's true. The US government cannot stop a group from organizing merely because they're unpopular or their views are unpopular it is against the First Amendment in the US Constitution. The entire idea of the First Amendment is to protect unpopular views.
Only if the MKO/MEK was inciting the imminent, overthrow of the US government could they intervene or else they could just not issue the permit, but then they would have to be for a legitimate government purpose and be the least obtrusive means of getting there.
In other words, take heart, all is not lost. There's more than one way to skin a cat. (Keep your powder dry.)
