As my fellow blogger Azarmehr puts it:
- The truth is that the Islamic regime, even despite the most restrictive candidate filtering, will pull out whoever it wants out of these dummy ballot boxes.
However Iranians are too much absorbed by the daily life and problems of it that don't know what to do about this. In one hand they reject this regime and in other hand they are clueless as to how to get rid of it. By voting in these sham elections, they may be able to create temporary space to breathe some fresh air but the entire system is not working and time has come for it to go. Therefore mullahs, who are to blame for the Iranian people's daily problems, seize the moment and exploit this opportunity to their own advantage and, by showing their so-called popularity to the world, buy some time for themselves and in the mean time keep playing with the destiny, lives and morals of the poor people they have been ruling over since 1979.
Last word is that no matter how many people vote in the elections in Iran, the entire system has lost its legitimacy but, unfortunately, it won't go away as we expect. This regime will not submit to the will of its people the way eastern European regimes did in late 80s and early 90s and the Iranian people are not eastern Europeans either.
Mullahs will have to be forced out of power and this will not be achieved if this trend of laziness and fearfulness survive among the very people who are suffering in the hand of this brutal regime.
