Islamic Republic's Scheme for Survival

According to an article written in the Economist, those in power in Iran are trying to isolate Iran
and to make the illusion of enemies surrounding the country, for their own survival.

"A Tehran-based academic says that just as revolutionaries in Russia and China took fright when their ideas stopped resonating with the people, those in Iran think that their survival depends on making Iranians feel surrounded, isolated and beset by foes. A particular group, he says, wants to make the revolution permament " in orer to retain their control of the power structure- and for this is is helpful if they can point to enemies everywhere."

But this isolation, ghost-enemy chasing and extreme crackdowns are the very thing that will dig the Islamic Republic's own grave. let them create their own demise.
