It seems so many of these editorials and articles make it sound as though it's the reformers vs the mullahs. That the people want or would be satisfied with the reformers in power. They leave out the most important aspect to the "revolution".
I guess because Democracy is a dirty word.
The regime wants the world to see this crisis as the reformers vs hardliners. To do so "proves" they are a democracy, struggling between liberals and conservatives, something most people understand.
Most people do not understand that it is not a true democracy; the people cannot choose their candidates. Nor that most people do not support either the reformers of the harliners.
They want out of a theocratic government.
