Is this the "Green revolution #2" ? No its not. here is why:

In 2009 when right-winger Ahmadinejad was voted, leftist (different from leftists in EU) supporters poured into the street to support their candidate Mir-housain-mousavi. the protests quickly turned violent as security forces confronted the protesters and those protests started to threaten the existence of Islamic revolution after some time for many reasons:

1- the protests had popular support and millions of people actually supported mir hussain

2- they challenged THE most important pillar of Islamic revolution which gave it any legitimacy it has: Democracy.

3- the protests had legitimate leaders who were all known to people as patriots. mir-hussain for example was one of founders of Islamic revolution

After some time and foreign meddling, people started to realize that their legitimate requests are being derailed by foreign intervention and they also feared their revolution was now at danger so they took the measure at their own hands and they started the biggest rallies in the history of Iran in support of the revolution. after those rallies all the protests ended as the overwhelming majority of people (many of them participating in the protests before) voiced their concerns about the path the protests were now taking.

so that all ended and in the next elections people overwhelmingly voted for Rouhani - the now leftist president of Iran.

leftists believe Iran should engage with west and should not be the one who closes the doors to dialogue (contrary to right-wingers). Rouhani came into power with the promise of the nuclear deal and a stronger economy. He, unfortunately, failed miserably

Failing to strengthen the economy due to the noncompliance of Trump regime to the deal, was a hail mary for the right-wingers to embarrass the leftists.

So they foolishly thought its a good idea to ignite protests against corruption and high prices. these protests-again-quickly turned violent and got out of control.

this time not because of police intervention,as the interventions were smartly very limited but because the protesters were violent.

the protests are now almost defeated and here are the reasons:

1- they did not have public support. the reason as why they got so much media attention was the damage that was caused to public

2- they didn't have any goal and no one actually knew what these protesters want, except for the slogans against the Islamic revolution

3- they didn't have legitimate leaders. the leaders of these protests were MKO terrorist establishment in France and remnants of Shah's dictatorial regime

4- they targeted the security of the people and one of Iranian people's few reasons why they have hope for future is actually the great security we have.


So summarize it all:

These protests not only did NOT weaken the Islamic regime but also bolstered it -contrary to what we saw in 2009.

Our people are so confused right now. They cannot just stay silent in face of sooo much corruption and financial difficulties. on the other hand, any action taken to voice their concern is quickly hijacked by foreign intervention and meddling and it quickly turns into PeopleVsGovernment drama. so what do we do to protect the revolution and our popular government? we shut up. we have to, or else we'll lose all we fought for.

So here is the situation in Iran right now.

We're stuck.

The sanctions imposed by the cabal are what is causing the problems. If you let the west steal all your oil and other resources then everything will be just fine.

I'm so sorry Haman. If it's any consolation whatsoever, you can join the club of screwed up countries. I think the U.S. is near the top of the list.

I hope things improve soon for you guys.

March for reform as needed. Unless you have a solid plan for what comes after then 'overthrow' is a doomed strategy.

It'll become 'unstuck' soon enough. Wait till the US begins dumping truckloads of Military "aid" in the town square. First though, there needs to be a period of time of genuine protest because the economy sucks because of all the sanctions the uS has placed on the Iranian people. It must appear the 'regime change' is a result of groundswell of popular civil unrest, first.

The arms will come later.

Same as was in Libya, Syria, Turkey..divide people then take out Kadafi, Assad, etc unless leader bends over.

All social-media driven PSYOPs and rebels with signs and guns provided by Imperial West.

US Military is going down that 7 countries within 5 years NWO list.

Steal at what 50 to 100 dollars a barrel? Its what the country does with all that money afterwards... The young in Iran do not want to be extremist.. They want freedom to live as they want to live..hell they might even want to visit america...

Iran's leadership is old school, extreme Islam laws and devils in the west to create the need for them to be extremest as they are. The young see it differently...

The Saudi`s are like Israel just American lap dogs all itching to attack Iran. The Iranians had best hurry up and get a nuke before democracy arrives to murder rape and kill them. Just like in Iraq the Afghan and Libya and countless other countries around the world.
The Iranian young no doubt do want a peaceful life, like the rest of us. To be able to buy decent stuff and to travel, unfortunately they are sanctioned at every turn. Trump the genius with his working button, has already banned them from visiting the states.
All concerned about the protests and wanting to help them. Defending human rights in Iran lol . We see how they defend human rights on a daily basis. Native American Oil pipe protesters being savaged by dogs tear gas and other weapons. The country with the most prisoners in the world. Wants to help the Iranians lol. The best help you could give them is to leave them alone and sort your own countries problems out.
Best of luck OP I hope everything works out for you and your people, dont buckle and give in to the crooks who are trying their best to start a war against you.
