Now, that may or may not be true -- who knows anything about the future?

What I am certain is that Iranians won't do anything in response to
Mr. Ardeshir Mehrdad's call for anything or Joanne Landy's Campaign
for Peace and Democracy (at <http://home.igc.org/~jlandy/cpd/>), whose
Iran statement Mr. Mehdad recommends at the end of his essay.
