Iran's Schizophrenic Approach To Revolution
You can’t ride a wave that’s about to drown you. Yet that’s exactly what the Mullah regime that’s occupying Iran is trying to achieve. While they praise the domino effect of autocracies falling in the Arab world, they try to maintain their stranglehold on the Iranian people. To that end they spin the popular uprisings against Arab rulers as an Islamic revolution. They aren't.
Meanwhile tensions grow as the Iranian youth sees that it is indeed possible to topple a despotic government. As the Iranian protests against the Islamic Republic increase the oppression.
The regime’s schizophrenic approach to the protests abroad and domestic means that the Islamic Republic believes it can fool the world, just as it did in its endless seheenanigans around the A-Bomb.
If they indeed believe that the fresh surge of Iranian resistance against their Islamic regime is not connected to the Arab revolutions, abandon all hope, those believing in a peaceful solution for Iran.
