The Iranian Chess

An observer would marvel at the way the Iranians are playing the game of changing the rules of maintaining the revolutionary system established in 1979 after toppling the Shah of Iran, while mastering the impression of polarizing inside the country.

The unfolding of the events resulting from protest to election's results, led to the creation of supporters to the Khameni-Ahmedinijad versus what is disguised as the Anti, represented in the Karubi and Musawi. The scenario has worked very well to the point that Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani is now considered Moderate by many internally and externally.
The time frame that took Rafsanjani starting from the days of clashes between security forces & the Basij on one hand and the Musawi supporters on the other to call for the release of protesters who were arrested and calling for reform is what leads the observation in concluding that the Persian political machine is strong and alive and functioning in harmony rather then what it seems to the world as weakened, and divided.
To the contrary the events have emboldened the legitimacy of the Iranian state and gave way to a deeper understanding of who is who on the political and social arena as well as a test of strength for a much needed balancing act for the continuation of the (Islamic) Republic Of Iran.
The events also gave the Political machine an idea on internally perceived trouble centers, by monitoring the activities either foreign or locals backed by external (including Mujahidi Khalq) forces to curtail and inflame the public to up rise utilising the unverified claims of wrong doing in voting practises by the party of President Mahmud Ahmdi Nijad.
