NCRI - While the Iranian regime is threatened by extremely serious crises coming from every side, regime leader Ali Khamenei and its president Hassan Rouhani are both making generalized comments over regime’s roadmap to deal with the crises, thus trying to evade putting forward a specific solution.
Since the regime is afflicted with crises at regional, international, and domestic levels, anyone or any current whose interests are tied to regime’s remaining in power, has naturally started struggling, desperately hoping to save the regime.
NCRI - The Iranian regime’s Commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), Mohammad Ali Ja'fari, said during a factional feud on Sunday, 13 August 2017: Some “accompany the enemy” to “undermine” the armed forces.
Meanwhile, his deputy, also attacking the regime's president Hassan Rouhani's band, called them the “echo of foreign voice.”
NCRI - On Tuesday August 8, 2017, Hassan Rouhani submitted the list of his ministers and cabinet members to regime’s parliament. The list, in which more than half of previous ministers have been replaced, is actually the result of a balance of power between regime’s rival bands.
The question, however, is whether the cabinet reshuffle puts forward a specific, strategic way out of the crises the regime is inundated with. The signs, data, and remarks made by regime’s officials and experts, however, give a negative answer to this question.
NCRI - On Thursday, August 10, 2017, the Iranian regime's Attorney General warned of what he called “enemy infiltration among the forces” and urged the security forces to be vigilant about this issue.
According to the state-run IRNA news agency, Mohammad Ja'far Montazeri, announcing that “the enemy is actively planning to infiltrate the forces,” added that “this danger should be taken seriously and the authorities and security forces should be alert to prevent this.”
NCRI - On Monday, August 7, 2017, the regime's law enforcement spokesman announced the appointment of Brigadier General Hossein Rahimi as commander of greater Tehran's Police Force. He has previously been the commander of the police in Sistan and Baluchistan province and has played a major role in repression and crimes against the Baluch people.
Hossein Rahimi is the successor to the Brigadier General of the Revolutionary Guards Hossein Sajedinia, who has been the commander of Tehran's Police Force since March 2009.
NCRI - Military commanders, senior officials refuse to participate
In the Saturday’s inauguration ceremony held for Iran regime’s President Hassan Rouhani, none of the former presidents, Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) commanders, Tehran mayor Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, former presidential candidate Ebrahim Raisi, and 36 MPs were present.
NCRI - The Iranian regime has enjoyed appeasement from the West for years despite its outright belligerence across the region. Former President Obama was so keen to keep the Iran nuclear deal in place that he turned a blind eye to many nefarious acts that the regime was responsible for. He also ignored blatant issues that should have been addressed, or at least acknowledged, like the poor human rights record in the country.

Attending Hassan Rouhani’s inauguration in the midst of a series of revelations is morally and politically unconscionable, writes Alejo Vidal-Quadras, as it suggests the EU will look the other way on actual abuses as long as there are pleasant-sounding promises coming out of a small faction within the Iranian regime.
NCRI - The Chairman of the Guardian Council Ahmad Jannati, on the eve of the Hassan Rouhani’s inauguration, remarked about the make-up of Rouhani's future government. He said: “One of the worries about the future government is its flexibility toward the United States and that the Americans could use this (against the Iranian regime) as pressure.”
