2018 was a challenging year for the Iranian Regime, from widespread anti-regime protests to international sanctions, both of which have done significant damage to the mullahs as we begin 2019.
These protests spurred US sanctions against the Regime, which only spurred more protests. It was like a perfect storm to destabilise the Regime. The Iranian Regime failed to address the demands of the protesters or the US, which is not surprising because it is simply not in the nature of the mullahs to abandon costly foreign wars or a nuclear weapons programme in order to help its people survive. So the sanctions and the protests grew all the more, eventually leading to other problems.
