    if you think about most iranians only care about so called pocket book issues.

    what is the involvement of iranians with civic issues out in the Western societies they live?

    I think the real winners are the people of Iran, whether they came out or not, although many did and did so bravely in small cities and towns too. Every average person now knows the true nature of the regime and the puppet show of reformist and radicals, all elements of the same puppet show. People of Iran many of whom had fantecized about an Islamic government now most likely believe in secular governance. Therefore, they are the true winners because the days between now and free and secular government in Iran are fewer than before.

    The loss is with the regime and the so called "moderates" because there can be no moderation in tyranny and injustice. Any amount of it is bad! The biggest loss rests with those elements who resorted to violence or propagated violence to blame it on the people. This is why people must be so vigilant against any form of violence and take great care to present their ideas and fight in a peaceful way that is consistent with their values and ideals and not those of the Islamic republic. This is their greatest protection against being the victims of violence. Their other great protection is their numbers. A large peaceful gathering of people is less likely to be attacked and draws more international support too. One day or night people will come out and stay out until the land is freed from opression and injustice!

The problem will be that in 3 years time, we will have another AN person coming up.

    I'm not saying that Rohani is a great leader or whatever. But he is not up for reelection and the only thing that matters to him is the internal position inside the regime and with Raissi out of the picture, his position got stronger. That's not up for discussion I guess.
    Rohani will be just like Khatami & AN after their terms. Sitting in his home and every once in a while regurgitating BS and some morons will cheer him on. That is about it.

    there is no will be. he already is. he has been in power for some years. gohi gharaar bood bokhore taaa alaan khorde bood ( i don't mean his supper and lunch)

    there is footage of him right after the revolution encouraging people to attack retired army officers, put them in jail, cut off their pension (or reduce it) and this is right after the Army declared their disgraceful neutrality and paving the road for the islamic revolution. how he treats his friends don't like to be his enemy.

    any personality coming up in due process of the islamic republic is a traitor to Iran and Iranian people. there is no middle ground here.
