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.

(IranAzad... Until they are free, we shall all be Iranians!)
Exactly. But the people writing these articles and editorials should know better. I think most of them do. They just don't want to report that the Iranians want a true democratic government. They're misrepresenting to all their readers, what the real story is. More emails are necessary to correct and educate them, every time they write a piece that leaves out the "D" word.
