I'm absolutely honored to be here with you today.

I have never been with a group who has had such a singular and overwhelming focus as you do. I'm proud to be among you. We assembled today as people who respect freedom and liberty with one cause and one cause only to free Iran.

So, in conclusion, that has led me to a couple of observations, one is I'm hopeful and optimistic for two reasons; one is the resistance is growing not only in size and scale but in determination, dedication, and conviction, and that is a credit to you and to all others who are a part of this movement. And second, the United States government who has already declared the Quds Force a foreign terrorist organization. I know for a fact that under consideration and I think what will eventually happen is that the Trump government will declare the IRGC a terrorist organization. The United States government will no longer appease or accommodate Iran but will confront Iran. The United States government will not permit Iran will not permit Iran to have nuclear weapons with ballistic missiles, which is not only a threat to the region but a threat to world peace. The United States government knows Iran while it should be confronted is not capable of fundamental change. the United States government knows Iran is evil to its core, the United States government in my judgment will support the people of Iran to change the regime. free Iran, Free Iran, and God bless you.

General Jack Keane, is a retired four-star general and former Vice Chief of Staff of the United States Army, and a defense analyst currently serving as chairman of the board for the Institute for the Study of War.
