Well i am from Iran as well and i have seen the problems and i have been living there for over 20 years and i have been studying Iran history and reading more than 10 articles about Iran everyday and as a result of research i would say its better to keep the current regime in Iran and try to change it from inside.
I can see the improvement of reforming the regime in the past 10 years and this can continue. It might take years but its achievable.
Now i am going to explain why i am againts the regime change in Iran.
1:Iran has a great influence on countries around her which is a big advantage in all aspects and as as example go and see the amount of goods that Iran is exporting to iraq
2.In the past 30 years or even more than that there was a balance in middle east that USA or any other western countries did not want to change it and that was Israel being the strongest country in the region since they got this land by force and they knew that its going to be war with her neighbours she wants to stay number military power in the region so scare other countries so they could be safe and now Iran is becoming much more stronger that ever befoere military wise so of course we are going to here israel putting pressure on USA to do something about iran.
3.Self sufficiency has been 1 of the most important aims of this regime which they have been successful not only we can support the country's need of almost everything we are actually exporting to many other countries.
4:a new revolution cost a lot schools and universities are going to be closed for at least 1-2 years unemployment will be double inflation would be triple.
5. and beside all those things from number 4 other countries want to have influence on Iran so we are going to see al queda in Iran we are going to lose the security in Iran and western countries will try to somehow take advantage of us like they did for decades and i am pretty sure that Kurds want independent and some other minorities like Arabs in the south
6.thousands of people are going to die till the revolution happen and many afterwards and there is 0 guarantee that the next regime is going to be better than the current regime
in conclusion i have to say that reforms would and will work we just need to be united and vote for the right people.

You know I myself dont like the government but some people here are saying people should revolutionize its their own fault, and they have to go to the streets but beleive me when you are sitting in the u.s of a and watching the news u'll learn it is not that easy. If you didnt know in the past 25 years Iranians have gone through a revolution (From monarchy to republic (pretty huge)) and they have been thru an 8 year war people are tired npo matter what they do some other idiot comes into power. and no america wont help the only thing that would happen would be poor brave american soldiers being killed and again innocent women and children. But hey look on the bright side youre country has killed millions in various wars in the past 50 years so that youll have enough fuel to power up your hummers.

I don't think you can. Revolution is probably the only way but it's usually messy and often not worth it. Iran is an established country, it is an independent and sovereign state with a tremendous history, and although I disagree with the Islamic faith, I don't think much will change. You'd need complete freedom of speech and freedom of press. But believe me, things in the west are not necessarily better. Look at Bush's Patriot Act and the illegal wars he's leading in the middle east ... do you honestly want to be like us?

After another week of near-constant talk about war with Iran, here’s one counterintuitive possibility: The Obama administration, in its eagerness to deter an Israeli strike, has committed itself to a pressure campaign that, if pursued vigorously, could eventually lead to regime change in Iran.
President Obama’s pledge of escalating economic, political and other pressure on Iran goes to that regime’s weak link. For the mullahs’ greatest vulnerability is their political structure, which is divided and unpopular, rather than their nuclear program, which appears to have fairly broad domestic support. And this political foundation may be shaken by the campaign under way.
The clerical regime isn’t an explicit target for the United States, but it’s at growing risk because of the forces in motion. Month by month, sanctions and other activities will undermine the regime’s political and financial base — squeezing the Iranian leadership and tempting it to take rash actions that would trigger a devastating response.
The situation resembles a hunting trap that gets tighter as the prey tries harder to escape. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta made that explicit when he said Thursday that the United States was preparing military options should non-military pressure fail.
Ironically, the worst option in terms of regime change would probably be a unilateral Israeli military strike. Given Israel’s capabilities, a strike would do enough damage to rally political support behind the Iranian leadership (and deflect the Arab Spring) but not enough to cripple the nuclear effort. An Iranian opposition leader told me last week that such an attack would be “a gift from God for the mullahs,” enhancing their political position rather than weakening it.
What has emerged from last week’s U.S.-Israeli discussions is a sort of tag team: The West is moving toward what it describes as crippling sanctions, while Israel waits restlessly outside the ring, apparently eager to jump in and strike a military blow. This combined pressure has already brought Iran back to the negotiating table, which is welcome but hardly a reason for the West to back off.
As the sanctions bite deeper into Iran’s oil exports and revenue, further enfeebling the regime, Tehran may have to contemplate the kind of negotiated settlement that Ayatollah Khomeini once likened to drinking from a “cup of poison.” Or, the regime may lash out with military action of its own — a dangerous course, given America’s overwhelming retaliatory power and the ability of Israel and Saudi Arabia to absorb Iran’s initial punch.
For Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, it’s a double bind: If he offers on the nuclear program a deal that would be acceptable to the West, he risks undermining what he sees as the regime’s legitimacy. But if he doesn’t offer a deal, the steady squeeze will continue. Eventually, something’s got to give.
Karim Sadjadpour, an Iran expert at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace whose views are closely studied at the Obama White House, argues that the Iranian regime is gradually bleeding itself to death for the sake of its nuclear program. He likens the process to the demise of the Soviet Union, which bankrupted itself in an arms race with the United States.
Sadjadpour likes to invoke an old saying about dictatorships: “While they rule, their collapse appears inconceivable. After they’ve fallen, their collapse appeared inevitable.” Iran, he argues, is “at the crossroads of that maxim.”
Now that the squeeze on Iran has begun, there’s a potential risk if it stops too quickly, leaving a damaged but still potent Iran seething for vengeance. That early termination could happen through a quick U.N. cease-fire after a unilateral Israeli strike or because the West calls off sanctions prematurely, leaving Iran’s nuclear toolkit still largely intact.
The West has an additional hidden capability in this crisis, between sanctions and open military conflict. It’s a way of increasing the cost of Iran’s actions, short of war. Officials don’t usually talk about this terrain of “covert action,” for obvious reasons, but it’s easy to imagine what might be possible: Defense-related research facilities could be disrupted; financial and other commercial records could be scrambled. These may sound like extreme options, but they’re just the non-lethal ones.
“You can cause a lot of mischief inside Iran,” says one foreign official. The pressure campaign under way may not force Iran’s current leadership to make a deal, this official notes, but it increases the chance that the regime will sink as a result of its own defiant behavior.

Sorry, Iranian Citizen, we are having enough problems dealing with our own fascist government here in the US.
Do you have a central bank, in Iran? If so, you need to get rid of it. That's where the real power is.
Good luck! Tyranny MUST be destroyed, no matter where it is.

If it was up to me we would be sending people like you the equipment to get the Job done. I wish I knew enough about your Country to answer your question. You have to organize like minded citizens. I think many Iranians share your feelings. I wish all of you who love freedom well.

Hopefully Bush and the republicans will be kicked out of office this year.
As like you they they suffer with the same problems of an extremist government .

Your people have to want it to the point that they are willing to die for it. It often requires that mental stance in order to make anyone in leadership listen in your case.
