Is the regime in Tehran in danger of falling and WTH is going on with Iranian protests?

The subject headline is a combination of two headlines that are in several newspapers throughout West Asia. The most recent headline from Arab news:

Is the regime in Tehran in danger of falling?

The surprise and repeated attacks on Iran’s interests in Iraq, and the killing of one of its most prominent military commanders, Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani, constitute the first real test of the regime’s strength and capabilities since the end of the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s. Its inability to adequately retaliate, together with the shooting down of a Ukrainian passenger plane by Iranian forces and the return of protesters to the streets of Tehran demanding the resignation of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, have raised the stakes and now represent an accumulation of calamities for Tehran. These events are not simply the result of bad luck at the beginning of a new year, nor are they mere coincidences, but rather natural consequences for a regime that is broken and arrogant.

That was preceded by another article just over one month ago. You can read it here:

WTH is going on with Iranian protests?

ran is currently experiencing its deadliest political unrest since the Islamic Revolution 40 years ago. The regime in Tehran has already killed hundreds of civilians and arrested 7,000 people as anti-government protesters take to the streets to demonstrate against corruption and the country’s faltering economy. Will this round of protests finally topple the system of the Islamic Republic? And what will happen to the people of Iran if protesters successfully upend the regime? On this episode of the show, Michael Rubin joined Dany and Marc to talk about what’s happening on the ground in Iran, whether the country’s government is truly at risk of collapse, and how protests in Tehran relate to similar unrest in Iraq and Lebanon.

Based on these two articles which are being run in several countries in the middle east it would appear that many Arab countries do not care for Iran's leaders. However if you read the USA MSM headlines about Iran I really sense deep sympathy for Iran's Supreme Leader and their military. Plus the Democrats and RHINOS came to Iran's rescue in their recent resolution. Why.

We are bombarded with a daily amount of INTEL. Some real some fake. It gets to the point that everything is a mystery. So what is the real deal, specifically with Iran. Whether you agree or not the actions taken within a country are generally how one can sense that something is amiss or basically wrong. Back in 1999, Iran also had protests. I attached an article about that here:

Looking Back At Tehran's 1999 Student Protests

So lets go from 1999 to December 2019. The "WTH" article above highlights that the government is not only imprisoning thousands but they are also killing their citizens for protesting. That's on the Supreme Leader. Yep the guy who sits next to Allah. So now in 2020 the police once again start firing live bullets at the protestors in Iran. So now an article comes out questioning as to whether Tehran is in danger of falling. Not only was that article written but it has appeared in several countries on the front page. So do we have a CIA psyop in the media or it is really the heart beat of the people as how often do articles like these appear in Arabic newspapers?

Then couple the above with Iran launching [2] missiles instead of [1] at the Ukraine commercial airliner is telling. Actually Iran has been quite jumpy lately. They lied about the shooting the airliner down and now they keep spinning blame onto the United states. It seems to me they put these headlines out their not necessarily for Iranians but for the USA MSM and all those USA politicians who support the Supreme Leader. Think about it as they also reached out to Michael Moore and Robert De Niro in a personal request for their help to incite unrest here in the USA and go after President Trump.

So here's my takeaway on all of the above:

Iran's Supreme Leader is in serious trouble along with those in power in Iran
The majority of the Iranian people are good
The majority of the USA people are good
The USA MSM is The Great Satan
Trumps sanctions are working
The EU is threatening to pull out of the Iran Nuclear deal

Its time for the Supreme Leader of Iran to listen to Allah; resign.

Thanks for the thread. I think many Americans do not realize that other countries actually exist.

I've felt that the seeds of regime change had been planted, Sulemani was maneuvered into a position to be killed to move into the next phase, and even quite possibly tricked into shooting down the airplane.

Dominos are falling - if all goes well, the good people of Iran get the government they deserve and Iran, the Middle East, the US, Israel, and the world are better off for it.

No need to as I can think for myself. So you for the good ole pre 1979 days. Me too!

From the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 until the Iranian Revolution and the fall of the Pahlavi dynasty in 1979, Israel and Iran maintained close ties. Iran was the second Muslim-majority country to recognize Israel[15] as a sovereign state after Turkey.[16][17] Israel viewed Iran as a natural ally as a non-Arab power on the edge of the Arab world, in accordance with David Ben Gurion's concept of an alliance of the periphery. Israel had a permanent delegation in Tehran which served as a de facto embassy, before Ambassadors were exchanged in the late 1970s.[18][19] After the Six-Day War, Iran supplied Israel with a significant portion of its oil needs and Iranian oil was shipped to European markets via the joint Israeli-Iranian Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline.[20][21] Brisk trade between the countries continued until 1979,[22] with Israeli construction firms and engineers active in Iran. El Al, the Israeli national airline, operated direct flights between Tel Aviv and Tehran.[23] Iranian-Israeli military links and projects were kept secret, but they are believed to have been wide-ranging,[24] for example the joint military project Project Flower (1977–79), an Iranian-Israeli attempt to develop a new missile.[25][26]

America strikes again!

To think somehow, just 2 weeks ago in soleimanis death they were shouting death to America and burning flags...

Fast forward a week, unknown, non Iranian people die in a shot down plane - due to heightened military posture after America dropped a bomb- now they're protesting against Iran and showing love for the flag of the USA....

And Trump tweets love for the Iranian 'protestors'...?

You'd have to be a complete DIV to buy into any of this.... And with America's history of 'regime change' chaos they've sewn over the years, yea only a complete div would buy all of this....

I know it's not about the actions, but whom takes the actions... Since it's Trump, the cult followers, even the most ardent conspiracy theorist, see nothing the least bit conspiratorial...

I doubt it.

In 1953, our government overthrew Iran's democratically elected leader and installed our tyrannical puppet.

It was called Operation AJAX.

It would take the Iranians 27 years and 5 million people to march on Tehran to depose our dictator, leading to the storming of our embassy which was the CIA's base of operations.

To teach the Iranians a lesson, we then ordered our other tyrannical puppet, Saddam, to attack Iran and armed him with both conventional and chemical weapons.

We armed both sides and used the money to overthrow yet another government: Nicaragua.

It was known as Iran-Contra.

But I digress.

The answer is no.

These US and Israeli backed protestors will accomplish little.

The forces of evil will keep stirring the pot, until they get what they want.
Arming rebels, agent provocateurs, murder, anything goes.

So has Iran gotten their BIS-approuved central bank yet ?

In 1979 another coup d'etat , this time it time for emperor Shah family to leave , and Ayatollah Khomeini be the next leader. This was planned by West .

I feel sorry for Iranian people becouse what they had to live since -79 .

The World is run by evil maniacs , so there is a need for having a enemys to assist their agenda, that`s why they can even set up Islamic hardlines to power, and it will bost arm sales too $$$$ since "have to prepare for wars" or just go to war...

NO, Iran is not near toppling

but the two tier government might... the Republic part of Iran needs to be reeled in by the Supreme-Leader and a Progressive Democrat system to replace the Republic/Parlimentry Government part (which is just 'show' anyways)

I would think the Ayatolla will take a hard look at the USAs soft coup with thePelosi band of rogue's running both houses of Congress as a model to win the hearts-&-souls of the Iranian people and form a progressive-socialist democrazy like 2020 government in the NAU nord-amerika-union

ETA: Remember, an exiled Ayatollah or Supreme Leader that actually runs Iran... the Islamic Ayatollah was once in exile in France until the Shah of Iran was himself overthrown by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards

? kahmeini -> Roumeni ? some sorta twisted change in the regional religious savior/leader/title
and in the intervening years... how has France been rewarded by the Islamics ? not very well, huh

I gotta fill in what I was posting....

In its history, Iran only has had two Supreme Leaders: Ruhollah Khomeini, who held the position from 1979 until his death in 1989,
and Ali Khamenei, who has held the position since Khomeini's death. In theory, the Supreme Leader is elected and overseen by the Assembly of Experts.
Supreme Leader of Iran - Wikipedia

so it was Khomeini who returned from Exile in France... by popular support
& it is Khamenei who is the present Supreme Leader
