All I can say is that HIM is a far better representative of the wishes and aspirations of the Iranian people that what apologies for they have in Tehran at the moment.

It so happens that this month is the 40th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution. The regime has brought terror, tyranny and misery to Iranians, it must be brought down as soon as possible.

40 years after the Iranian Revolution, Iranians have had enough and are still in revolt:

Meanwhile, Germany outdoes itself by congratulating the Iranian regime on the anniversary of the revolution. How revolting:

Masssive flooding in Iran has revealed the incompetence of the regime, fuelling public anger:

Meanwhile, the IRGC has now been designated a terrorist organisation:

Along with the Basij and Quds Force, the IRGC basically acts as the bully-boys of the regime. Expect the Washington Post, CNN, Foreign Policy magazine, Al-Jazeera et al to defend them just as they defend Qatar and Turkey.

Just so they can do the nuclear deal, the British government didn't dare mention the fact Hezbollah had a weapons cache in London.

I dislike John Bolton's policies on Syria and Iran.
Bolton wants to continue US support for PYD. USA supporting the PYD is a disgrace. PYD is the Syrian branch of PKK, which is a Maoist terrorist organization. PYD and PKK don't even support Kurdish independence. PYD persecutes Kurdish nationalist opposition in northern Syria and has established a totalitarian regime in northern Syria, which doesn't allow free elections. Assad is the least bad option in Syria, because his main opponents are jihadists or Maoists. A Jordan-style monarchy or a secular democracy is unlikely to be established in Syria. Monarchists ought to support KRG (the autonomous regional government of South (Iraqi) Kurdistan), because it's a secular multi-party democracy with free elections, where the Kurdistan Democratic Party (a secular Kurdish nationalist conservative party) and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (a secular Kurdish nationalist social democratic party) are the main parties. The Kurdish aristocracy has a lot of influence in the KRG, while PYD and PKK are opposed to the Kurdish aristocracy. I expect monarchists to prefer an aristocratic republic to a Maoist republic.
Bolton supports the MEK (People's Mujahedin of Iran), which is an extremist Islamic Marxist terrorist group, which supported Saddam during the Iraq-Iran war. Most Iranians hate MEK, because they supported Saddam. Even if you aren't a monarchist, supporting Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi is a far better option than supporting MEK, because Reza Pahlavi is far more popular among Iranians than the MEK. Reza Pahlavi is the only Iranian opposition leader, who is able to unify the Iranian opposition. 
I hope, that Trump will fire Bolton soon. 
I like Trump's strong support for Israel and Trump's sanctions against the Iranian ayatollah regime. The Temple Mount ought to be under Israeli sovereignty, because the Temple Mount is the holiest place in Judaism, while it ranks below Mecca and Medina in Islam. The US sanctions against Iran may trigger a popular revolution in Iran. But USA ought to withdraw from Syria.

I agree with you on much of this. You are of course correct on the MEK - a group which has conned part of the neocon circles into believing they are a democratic force when in reality they are a terrorist group with Stalinist leadership like a cult.

Do you prefer KRG or PYD in Kurdistan? Do you prefer Assad or PYD in Syria? I dislike neocon ideology, because USA exporting democracy to other countries is wrong. Despite my preference for democratic hereditary constitutional monarchy, that form of government must emerge organically rather than being imposed by a foreign country. In addition, the neocons are hostile to restoration of monarchies. They prevented the restoration of the Afghan monarchy in 2001, a disastrous decision even from a non-monarchist point of view, because it made the comeback of Taliban easier. But I supported Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, because Saddam tried to genocide my people, and I supported the US invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, because Taliban sheltered the perpetrators of 9/11. I opposed the NATO invasion of Libya in 2011, and I'm strongly opposed to US intervention in Syria (mainly because of US support for PYD). A US invasion of Iran masterminded by Bolton will be a bad idea, because Bolton supports MEK, and because Bolton will likely prevent Reza Pahlavi from taking power in Iran. I support Trump's sanctions against Iran, and I hope, that they will trigger a popular revolution in Iran. In addition, Bolton is strongly anti-Turkish, because he considers Erdogan too close to the Iranian regime. Even if he is right, supporting PYD is a bad solution to that problem, because the Republican People's Party supports Erdogan's fight against PYD. US support for PYD will damage US relations with a future Republican People's Party government in Turkey.

Yes I believe Iranians should be the ones to change their regime. And clearly the popularity of Reza Pahlavi among the protest movement cannot go unnoticed.

Erodgan's regime to me appears to marry the worst features of Ottoman and Kemalist systems and none of the better. The PKK/PYD are repugnant, yet there are apologists in the West who romanticise them.

As for Syria, I've never been able to forgive the Assads for what they did to Lebanon over 30 years.

I have mixed opinions about Erdogan. Erdogan ended repression of the Kurdish language in Turkey and he has treated the Osmanoglus better than previous governments of the Republic of Turkey has done. In 2004, he granted Ertugrul Osmanoglu, the then head of the Osmanoglu dynasty, Turkish citizenship (Ertugrul Osmanoglu died in 2009), and in 2017 ordered Erdogan the evacuation of D√ľndar Osmanoglu, the current head of the Osmanoglu dynasty, from Syria to Turkey. But Erdogan has overstayed his welcome. I dislike his religious intolerance, which includes hate speech against Zoroastrian Kurds, his anti-Semitism, his support for Hamas and his purges. But I support the Turkish state in its fight against PKK and PYD, and the Republican People's Party supports the fight against PKK and PYD.
I repeat, that I prefer the Assad regime to PYD.

I take issue with Turkey on many things, not least its persistent denial of the Armenian Genocide as well as the Greek and Assyrian genocides, and the Cyprus episode from which there are still people unaccounted for.

Ilhan Omar is on the side of the Iranian regime. And Iranians react negatively to her tweets as well.
