    What a historic moment right around the corner.

    IMO de Council is waiting for this trend to die a natural death. So they're buying time. Meanwhile they try to soothe everyone through the ubiquitous state-run media.

    People have jobs. Places to be. The can't go to every demostration Moussavi summons them.

    The good thing probably is that even if Ahmadinejad remains in power, people will be watching him closely to jump at his throat should he displease them too much.
  3. Appeasement. Hoping that the appearance of reaching out to the protesters will calm the outside world and dwindle the protester's numbers.
    Damage control since they've been unsuccessful at hiding their mistreatment of Iranians from the global media.
