Tehran's bazaar strike is now in its second week and the merchants in NW city of Tabriz have also joined the strikers. The stock market in Tehran has hit a new low again. These strikes can be a significant move and if sustained, will cripple the regime profoundly. The economy has been in shambles ever since the Mullahs seized power in 1979 but this is happening at a time when the theocratic regime is hit with sanctions and massive popular unrest. How much longer can these maniacs hold? All it takes to overthrow them is a nudge from the outside.
