[RT America ] January 2nd: Iran Grapples with Demonstrations

Iran has been struggling to address demonstrations that have stretched into their sixth day and counting.  The people by the tens of thousand in various cities across the country have multiple demands, everything from economic reform to defiance of Iran's Islamic leadership itself. 

President Hassan Rouhani has generally been tied to the reformers but that doesn't necessarily mean that he is safe. The power of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei along with the Revolutionary Guard is another power base in itself.  These groups are generally working in concert but what is important to watch is whether they will continue to do so.

This is a complex issue that absolutely will not fit onto a bumper sticker.  This should be interesting.
