Iran is spiraling down into totalitarianism
Over the last year, inflation rate in Iran is 75%. Riots in the street as unemployment goes up, inflation jumps. Now, word is coming out that the Ayatollas (sp) are going to arrest Ahmadinejad, as they already have many of his biggest supporters, and disband the Parliment.
The only way they can maintain power is to try to export their revolution and maintain control of the military. But their actions show a weakening power base.
