"Iranian regime's response to protesters has only exposed the country's leadership as running scared. Thousands have been jailed arbitrarily & dozens killed. The brutal men of the regime seem to be particularly terrified by Iranian women who are demanding their rights." -Pompeo pic.twitter.com/C0ww421aou— Security Studies Group (@SecStudiesGrp) May 21, 2018
