In recent years Iran is often depicted as a powerful giant whose arms stretch across the greater Middle East, but today the Iran's regime suffers from collection of problems at home and abroad. After Sanctions, Iran’s Economy Is Looming a Crisis. On Thursday night Donald trump Vowed that The US will take care" of countries which defy its directive to bring their oil imports from Iran to zero by November 4, President Donald Trump has warned, days after India announced that two of its firms have placed orders to import crude from the Gulf nation. Iran’s currency, the rial, has fallen by more than 75% since the start of the year. There is now a thriving black market for U.S. dollars as the rial continues to plunge. Social unrest and Protests have spread widely across the country, the anxiety has increased daily over the high inflation, growing unemployment On Oct. 11, 2018 - Iran’s hardworking truck drivers continued their nationwide strike, marking the 19th consecutive day on Thursday. Reports from sources indicate this protest movement is continuing strong, especially in the cities of Ardabil, Isfahan, Mobarakeh, Zarrin Shahr and Bandar Imam. Truck drivers in the cities of Ardabil (northwest Iran) and Mobarakeh (central) held rallies at the local loading stations, protesting skyrocketing prices for spare parts and low paychecks. During Wednesday’s protests, drivers and truck owners in Isfahan’s New Shapur district held a protest march outside the loading station’s city office. On Wednesday morning, shops in Tehran’s Shahrak-e San’ati were closed in protest to increasing prices, inflation, poverty and other economic grievances. This is the third day of a strike that began on Monday and spread to more than 50 cities and 21 provinces across Iran. Meanwhile in Urmia Central Prison in northwest Iran, over 700 inmates in ward 15 launched a hunger strike following the suicide of one of their cellmates. The prisoners have been protesting since early Thursday morning, expressing their anger over the prison’s conditions, the warden’s pressures and his mafia-like measures. These prisoners, numbered at over 700, are currently on hunger strike. Iran's rulers are not able to get break through from this Delima. “We need extraordinary efforts ... to find solutions for those domestic economic challenges and to confront cruel American sanctions. Serious decisions should be made,” Khamenei the supreme leader said, state TV reported. To end this considering the powder keg circumstances of Iran’s society, the PMOI/MEK, having an organized structure, has been able to impact the on-the-ground events. One must admit that the resistance units are the most important force of the Iranian people’s revolution, and they are playing their historical role in various methods.

If a 2009 style insurrection breaks out in Iran, it will not be ignored by this President like it was by his predecessor.
