While Iranians are still debating who won the recent presidential election, they are agreed on who the losers were.
To many Iranians, the ultimate losers in the current crisis are the Shi’ite clergy who appear confused, divided and increasingly isolated.
Iranians who watch their television or read their newspapers these days cannot help noticing that while the mullahs are fading a new elite, consisting of the military, is taking their place.
This week, for example, several generals of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Crops (IRGC) dominated the state-owned media with a series of openly political speeches and interviews. IRGC Commander-in-Chief Major-General Muhammad Ali Jaafari, put it in a clear way. “ There is a new situation in which the IRGC controls the country and defends the revolution,” he said. “ The consequences of this new situation must be taken into account in every field.”>>>

What's your opinion about all this?by rosie is roxy is roshan on Sat Jul 18, 2009 01:58 PM PDT
I think it's fascinating. I've never read anything like it with all this mountain of stuff I've been shovelling through since the (s)elections. I agree with Abarmard. It's the most interesting one. I found it checking al Arabiya today too but they got it from Asharq Alawsat. I think that's a very good publication. I used it once before. I intended to go back there more often but you seem to be doing it for me. It seems as though somehow as an expat Arab publication it's both close enough and far enough to dig up some very interesting perspectives. I know the author is Iranian, but I just haven't seen anything quite like this anywhere before.
Very interestingby Abarmard on Fri Jul 17, 2009 08:45 AM PDT
Perhaps the most interesting piece since the election events have taken place.
The parlimentary election next year would stamp an "agreement" or "discredit" to this idea.
