Unfortunately I don’t see why the clerical regime would fall. At most I think Khamenei may be ousted along with Ahmadinejad, but I would predict that even so the basic contours of the Iranian state would remain intact, under new, somewhat more moderate and less belligerent management.

Did you think the same thing 30 years ago when the Shah fell from power?
