Iran Fading

The ruling elite of Iran may have proved that they could void an election and continue to cling to power, but it quite wouldn’t be right to say they got away with it. Iran’s global presence has been fading steadily, and it seems safe to say that the profitability of the rogue business enterprises that virtually own the government has declined also.

It was hard to imagine in January that Iran would all but disappear from the world’s checklist by May, but that’s what can happen when a government is weakened by internal feuding. Meanwhile, according to online accounts, the situation for ordinary citizens in Iran has deteriorated as they increasingly become pawns in the government’s internal disputes.
