to clear the situation more:
an individual may think:
1-bad economy can lead to a revolution in Iran.
2-Iran is isolated.
3-snactions have made them to starve to die !
4-these can made them stop saying down with Israel or USA !
5-Israel is strong and legitimated in the region !
6-Ayatollahs are ruling people like a theocracy and dictatorship.
7-religion is something like Medieval
from an Iranian (the widely accepted ideas) point of view:
1-no noway ! the history of this country is full of hard situations. sanctions, imposed war, coups, colored revolution and .... this is it's recent 30
years history let alone the long experiences throughout it's long history like colonialism ... . the aim of sanctions is to prevent their
improvement as an independent country.
of course bad economy can lead to social problems. but these situations are not something strange in Iran.
in fact with considering economy crisis in EU, Iran's economy is far better than many EU countries !!!
so they find their solutions and they are reforming their economy.
let me explain it this way, some of strong economies of the world are going down from the apex and Iran is struggling to reach the apex, so who is
more disappointed !!!
2-surely Iran is not isolated, it is the chief of NAM a group of 118 countries and their aim is to reach a new world order !!!!
EU and USA knows it well that Iran is circling their sanctions but they are pleased at least they could make it's path long. of course they can not
say that they want to shut the mouth of Iran because they are after freedom of speech anyhow ! so they say this is because Iran is doing something bad
3-the turnover of Iran's economy is large and indigenous. sanctions can not make them starve to die !
4-this can encourage them to say down with Israel or USA (surely this is not against their nations) even more !
5-Israel has many serious problems and it is in his weakest situation in it's 60 years bloody occupation !
6-how can a colored revolution take place in a dictatorship political system ! history of Iran is full of referendums from parlement members to
presidency and even the Ayatollah leader indirectly and the duties are in the constitution !
7-imagine what a person may think about religion in west. inverse it. that is the widely accepted view about religion in the middle east countries
they consider their religion as a powerful tool for improvement even far better than Communism or Capitalism. they think their problems are because
they have not implemented their religion and revolution's goals truly.
