Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The country and the interests of the ruling elite are supposedly one and the same.

So, if Iran appeal to the majority shi'ite population, then those interests would be inconvenienced to a greater or lesser extent by terroristic elements.

If the leadership were Shi-ite, like say in Syria, then a Sunni people rising up would be freedom fighters. Unless they're the wrong kind of sunnis, in which case we'd try to bomb all of them
