Excerpts of the report, posted this week on several Iranian websites, revealed that the government might not be able to pay the full salaries of its employees in the coming three months, which threatens the eruption of massive popular protests across the country.
Large portions of the population might suffer from starvation, the report said, adding that riots are expected to take place in border cities where living conditions are rapidly deteriorating.
According to the report, Iran’s reserve of foreign currency might run out within the coming six month owing to extreme budget deficiency.
Economic sanctions in conjuction with a government that treats it's people like animals, is bound to create this kind of situation eventually.

If push comes to shove they will have closed door meetings with washington or the UN.
They will get a sweetheart deal.
And it will be business as usual.
As a person with an Iranian brother in-law, and who is in contact with his father on a regular basis, and as a person who works directly under an Iranian engineer all of the Bahá'í faith, a faith not recognized by the ruling majority. Who lived pretty OK over there not like animals at all. I find your comments of people being treated like animals, very uniformed especially since you see what goes on in the United States of Amerika, and our wonderful country Canada.
I also find it odd that you paint a country, that is facing unjust economic sanctions based on here say and the will of the Isreali government, as the one who is in the wrong, usually I am for most of what you post but it seems as if you have become convinced that they are the boogie man as well and too be feared.
We all know that if Iran threw a stone at a neighbor with a sling shot they would be eliminated, yet the game continues the people suffer and all the while we punish them on the premise of lies, conjecture, and hear say. And it seems you support this, pretty sad in my opinion. But I guess the MSM can convince anyone with enough rhetoric.
