Iran change is coming from within


uk.news.yahoo.com

Just one reformist, Ali Reza Mahjoub, was set to sit in the new parliament for Tehran after squeezing into 11th place in the second round, with reformist support hit by a meagre turnout in the capital on Friday.

A conservative-controlled parliament is in any case not expected to be wholeheartedly supportive of Ahmadinejad, who has alienated many of his fellow conservatives with controversial policies and speeches.

Ahmadinejad faces a re-election battle in the summer of 2009 against a background of discontent over high inflation, and his toughest competition is expected to come from more moderate fellow conservatives.

really don`t know where to put this so forgive me for this forum;

read the linked article - the opposition didn`t fair well in the elections - alot of the candidates were disqualified although a low voter turn out really didn`t help there cause , so really is the opposition as strong as we are led to believe?? BUT , reading between the lines of the yahoo story , Ahmadinejad days as leader are coming to an end - not because of all the usualy spouting of rhetoric to the west - but of what he does - or hasn`t done at home ; frequent changes in cabinet , expansionary economic policies and rising inflation.


so what does this have to do with ATS? well quite simple - i really believe that change is in the wind for iran - with a more moderate conservative leader in teh offing someone with a better face for the west - but lets hope the war-dogs in the west can be kept down long enough (18 months or so for iranian elections) for this to happen.
