'US should do everything it can to bring down Iran government': Condoleezza Rice

Editors' Picks

Washington, Nov 7 (ANI): Former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has said that Washington should consider tougher penalties against Tehran and should 'be doing everything possible to bring the Iranian government down.'

Calling the Iranian regime "the poster child for state sponsorship of terrorism," Rice said one way to confront Iran would be to remain in Iraq.

"This is one of the downsides of having our forces out of Iraq, because we can confront the Iranians in Iraq," Fox News quoted Rice, as saying.

"Frankly, I think it would help the regional balance to have a residual American presence there. We need to find a way to help the Iraqis sustain themselves through this period and to deal with their somewhat meddlesome neighbor in Iran," she added.

Rice also said that the Iranian government is trying to get a nuclear weapon and that it represses its people.

"The regime has absolutely no legitimacy left," she added. (ANI)
