I believe that at this point Mr. Mousavi is looking to put in place the laws of the Islamic Republic! Although many problems exists with the constitution, but making the government obedient to the law, allows the channels of representative democracy to take place.

In this route, people are looking at their civil Rights, based on what was promised to them. This is the same path that Mr. Khatami wanted to take and failed. Rafsanjani wanted to take office and promote this, and failed. They now believe that they are at the border line. It's either complete dictatorship with no hopes for reforms (Meaning the only solution must be a revolution) or the victory of people (Meaning more relaxed social laws. Lack of absolute power by any parts of the regime, specially leader, kicking the military a way from the politics).

That's what he wants to do. It's almost a revolution by definition at this point. The system, after this very election, has proven that it's not willing to share power with other parties and is headed towards dictatorship. Well, the Iranian society is far more advance to take bunch of backward, rarely educated, and never democratic part of the same system. The only hope that most people had was the Reformist camp.

What is Mousavi after?


IF a re-run of election is announced and he was to be elected. Then what?


Is he going to answer the call of the ( brave ) masses and end dictatorship?


Free press and media?

No political prisoners?



End velayateh-faghih? And be the servant of the people ?


I wonder ?


What I am sure of ( and sincerely hope ) is that our brave hamvatans , will not leave the scene until Iran gets what it deserves , democracy.
