A former Iranian Revolutionary Guards officer who worked for nearly a decade and a half as a CIA spy has advice for the incoming Republican majority in the House: Help the people of Iran overthrow the tyrannical regime ruling their country or face a catastrophic war fought on Tehran’s terms.
“It is essential for us to understand that the establishment ruling Iran is truly committed to belief in the end of times and the reappearance of Imam Mahdi, the 12th Shiite Imam,” said Reza Kahlili, who uses that pseudonym and recently penned “A Time to Betray,” a memoir of his days as a CIA Spy. When that happens, “Iran’s rulers believe Islam will conquer the world and kill all the remaining nonbelievers.”
If the Iranian regime is allowed to acquire nuclear weapons, it will initiate a worldwide conflagration, Kahlili believes.
“Millions will die and millions of others will suffer unimaginable horrors. We will witness one of the greatest depressions and greatest destructions in human history. It is time that we take action and help the Iranians free themselves before it’s too late for all of us.”
