I know I know, another one of my calling that THE revolution is about to happen, right? Perhaps not this time. The divisions between reformists and advocates of continued clerical rule in Iran are wider than ever and could be on the verge of boiling over. <a href="http://www.iht.com/articles/76777.html"> After four days of street demonstrations in Tehran, Tabriz, Isfahan, Urumiyeh, and Hamedan</a> protesting against the death sentence meted out to reformist scholar <a href="http://www.netiran.com/Htdocs/Clippings/DPolitics/020512XXDP01.html">Hashem Aghajari</a>, the momentum of protests appeared to be growing rather than ebbing. In the meantime, the political crisis which has arisen out of the efforts of the reformist-dominated Parliament to curb the powers of the judiciary and the veto-wielding Guardian Council has reached such a pass that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has threatened to use <a href="http://news.ft.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=FT.com/StoryFT/FullStory&c=StoryFT&cid=1035873219784&p=1012571727102">'the force of the people'</a> (a euphemism for the Revolutionary Guards and the Islamist Basij militia) against the President's Administration and against the reformist majority in Parliament. With popular President Khatami threatening to resign if the curbs on the judiciary and Guardian Council do not become law, and with both reformers and conservatives threatening to resort to force, we, folks, are on a verge of something big happening in Iran. My question is this, however, with best interests of the US being in Iran (in light of having more allies in the Middle East) is there anything that the U.S. can sensibly do to ensure that the power struggle in Iran ends with Khatami and Parliamentary reformers in charge rather than the America-hating clerics?
