"They are the most cruel, radical group on the planet"
Lol, hardly, biased much? They would probably treat the Iranian people better than the current regime and will probably be who moves in when someone
finally goes after Iran. Some people (Dick Armey) think they were only included in the list of terror nations as a token to Iran. I only know what I
read, but based on their supposed platform they sound better for Iranians than the current regime.
Here is their economic platform:
The NCRI pledges to uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and all international covenants on human rights, including "freedom of
association, freedom of thought and expression, media, political parties, trade unions, councils, religions and denominations, freedom of profession,
and prevention of any violation of individual and social rights and freedoms." 
The NCRI recognizes "the right of women to vote and stand as candidates in all elections, and the right to vote in all referenda," "the right to
employment and free selection of profession, and the right to hold any public office, including the presidency or judgeship," "the right to freely
choose clothing," and "the right to use, without discrimination, all instructional, educational, athletic, and artistic resources; the right to
participate in all athletic competitions and artistic activities." 
The council accepts national capitalism and the bazaar, private ownership and enterprise, as well as private investment. It emphasizes the need to
utilize the latest scientific and technical achievements and views relations with industrial countries necessary to reconstruct Iran's economy.
Freedom of Religion
The NCRI believes in the separation of Religion and State. According to its ratifications, "all forms of discrimination against the followers of
various religions and denominations in the enjoyment of their individual and social rights are prohibited. No citizen shall enjoy any privileges or be
subject to any deprivations with respect to nomination for election, suffrage, employment, education, becoming a judge or any other individual or
social rights, for reason of belief or non-belief in particular religion or denomination." 
The NCRI recognizes the rights of all ethnic and national minorities. It has adopted a plan for the autonomy of Iranian Kurdistan, specifying that
"the administration of all affairs of the autonomous region of Kurdistan," except for those related to foreign policy, national defense, national
security, foreign trade and customs, "fall within the authority of the autonomous organs." 
The council's foreign policy is based on independence, respect for the United Nations Charter and international conventions and treaties, good
neighborliness, international and regional cooperation and non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries. The NCRI supports the Middle
East peace process and is committed to maintaining and protecting peace and tranquility in the region and condemns any aggression and expansionism.
The council opposes nuclear proliferation and the production of weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles.
NCRI, MEK, MKO are all the same organization btw.
