Why does this analysis not deal with this subject? If and only if there are going to be a new Iranian election soon, and there is any reason to believe that the same electoral fraud will not occur again. This is critical. Why isn't it mentioned?
"In the last national elections in Iran, the mullahs canceled the candidacies of those candidates for the national legislature that they disapproved of."
They always do.
"the "reformers" were unable to succeed in the elections..."
Didn't matter. No one wanted them.
There's an election for President coming in May (I think) Won't matter. Majority of people will do as last election: Stay home. They don't want the "reformers" any more than the hardliners. A mullah's a mullah. They ALL have to GO.
