The conference purpose is to: To gain the trust of Iranian people, we must adopt a sincere policy devoid of any obstacles for the Iranian Resistance. Rejecting appeasement is indispensable to the policy towards Tehran.

To gain the support of Americans, President Bush must work to adopt a firm policy in dealing Tehran's nuclear and terrorism threat.

To achieve a real solution, America must support a third option, which is to allow the Iranian people and Resistance change the regime in Tehran.

UPDATE: Some fellow bloggers are inferring that I am a supporter of the MEK because of this post.
I am not an MEK supporter. I posted the story so others would know that the MEK was coming to DC. The website for the conference did not make clear itÂ’s sponsorship, thus my post.
