Protesters' typical slogans are:
- "Reza Shah, bless your soul"
- calls for removal of the regime
- protests against Iranian regime involvement in Syria, Gaza, Lebanon and Iraq

This isn't limited to Iran. Virtually every revolutionary "anti-imperialist" regime has promised people a utopia, only to deliver abject misery and failure:

German companies sold semi-finished goods to Iran, which we all know how it ends.

I feel a major difference between Iran and many other countries is that there is an organised opposition and a rallying point for opponents of the regime, yet the protest movement also is a grassroots movement without a handful of individuals leading it.

The regime in Iran is less likely than North Korea to change or give up anything, and that says a lot:

Frankly I don't buy the suggestion that Iran could fall apart like the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia:

Trump may have raised questions on Iran with Putin:

The regime's internal problems may go as far as being unable to provide electricity and drinking water to people - a problem apparently spreading to Iraq next door:

Mike Pompeo will be part of a discussion on Iran. My sincerest hope is that he talks to and engages with the right people. That's because some very foolish people mainly in Neocon circles are talking to some of the wrong groups, who they've been duped by. And I'll get onto that in a much more detailed discussion later on.

Iranians do not share the West's delusion that the system can be "reformed" from within and do not care for the distinctions between the "hardline" and "moderate" or "reformist" camps. They know that the system itself is the problem and must be brought down completely.

After all, when the "moderate" Rasfanjani and "reformist" Khatami were in office, the regime continued its atrocities internally and externally, persecuting dissidents and minorities. Trying to improve relations with the outside world only allowed them to get away with it. Ahmadinejad on the other hand was seen as a return to the "true" and "pure" "values" of the Islamic Revolution. And now there's Rouhani, who tries to put on the "moderate" face. But nobody among Iranians at home or abroad is buying it.
