Yes there are signs of crumbling, but these signs may be very decieving...the signs of crumbling might be as they are, nevertheless I too, find it very disturbing that the power within the regime is being centralized. If the wanna be presidents influence is increased even more, i see dark clouds on the horizon. This regime works in sick ways, and it uses these sick methods on multiple levels. All of us watching from a far, have experienced these sick methods...one day there is hope, because we see karroubi speaking openly against the methods of the regime, hope that there is an open discussion which could lead to reforms, the next day, they close his newspaper. Talk about a crack down... this regime wants to stay in power, no matter what the cost and they will use their power to do so...the more this power increases and is used, the more discouraged people, inluding us, will get. So i don't hink it is wrong to keep these developements under close observation and discuss them.
