Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Very much not the anticipated speech. Quite confrontational. Seems as tho' they've decided to tough it out and it may well work in the short term.

But it basically spells the end of the Iranian theocracy. Civilised democratic change working within thoecratic limits has been rejected and so sooner or later, and definitely within the time period of the next election, there will be another uprising. Only that one will be as bloody and dangerous as the toppling of the shah.
