Thirty years ago, something like 60-80% of Iranians wanted the Shah gone. That was it, nothing more, nothing less. We never thought once about the consequences and we saw what happened. Please excuse my language but we went from being partially submerged in "goh to being fully submerged in "eshaal"!
Now, people of Iran are so sick of whats happened to them in the past 30 years (and rightfully so) that all they want is change, reform, an end to the current regime. From my numerous blogs you can easily see that there is no one out there who hates the IRI and Islam more than I do. Thats a well documented fact.
But for God sake, for once, lets think about what we are doing. Lets say Khamenei and Ahmadinejad are gone. Do we want a Islamic-Military regime to take over with one of the sepah or basij heads running the country? Do we want Mir Hossein Mousavi or Mehdi Karroubi as a President? What about "velayate faghih"? Do we want an Islamic democracy or a secular democracy? Who will be the heads of the new government? Basically, who will be the running the country until a so called democratic system is installed.
Is there unity of thought in Iran? The only thing people are united about is getting rid of the current regime. In my opinion, whats happening is a mistake. As usual, we have not thought this thing through and the chances of another big mistake is very high.
I sure as hell hope I am wrong.
