Investigation Into Extent of Iran Regime's Revolutionary Guards ' (IRGC) Activities

NCRI Staff

NCRI - The Iranian regime is looking for power, control and influence in the Middle East. Everything that it does, it does so for this goal and it does not care about the consequences.

One such example is the drug trafficking that the Iranian regime is involved in. It is something that greatly affects the population of Iran and every year more and more people are becoming addicted to drugs. It is a problem that is seriously effecting the young people of the country and the government is failing to address the issue. Probably because it is something that brings so much revenue to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

NCRI Staff

NCRI - The new U.S. policy on Iran, including Donald Trump's decision not to recertify the 2015 nuclear agreement, is supported by the vast majority of ordinary Iranians, but they also want a strategy to deal with the Iranian regime’s dismal human rights record.
