I do not think that it will come to that. Unlike Iraq to the Mediterranean Sea, Iran was never really divided by the individual tribes or different
99% of the population of Iran are Shi’a and the rest are a minority. And as far as national identity, unlike many of the other countries in the
area, the Iranians, are Persians, and have been such for a long time. And the last time that there was a revolution/coup it was done smoothly and
there was a fast transition from the old government to the new.
Now with that in mind, as long as the USA stays out of it, and watches, then Iran will be able to work this out, fully and completely. A lot now
depends on the people of Iran. If they continue and can get the military to back them, then the current government will fall and a new one will come
into power. If the military backs the religious government, then this will fail.
The point here, is that by not interfering, it gives the moderate voices in Iran a stronger claim. But if the USA gets involved, then it will give
the hard line voices more ammunition and ultimately force the silence of the moderate voices.
