Some have already forgotten it. Some are relieved to be able to forget 
it. What was it? CIA plot that got snuffed, as the Supreme Leader put it 
supremely deceptively? Was it an aberration? A blip?

It was a reminder that time is short, and life is precious: A one-week 
flash flood of protests by Iranian poor-and-fed-up people across the 
country, in 80 cities, towns and even some very small towns; these 
protests voiced grievances that have only one way of being heard: in the 
streets.

Western ‘anti-imperialist’ and conspiracy-oriented left, European powers 
with lucrative deals either lined-up or ongoing, international financial 
centers, and President Rouhani and the whole herd of the so-called 
reformist and pragmatist factions of the regime, along with their expat 
mouthpieces, whose collective complicity was exposed unequivocally by 
this latest uprising of the people – they all can relax. The security 
forces and the hardliners did what they do best, so everybody can relax.
