The interesting development is that Ahmadinejad's planned successor is quite openly about "fuck Shariah". That's why Ahmadinejad, even though he deserves to hang for the electoral fraud and the repression, is the lesser evil.
Still, Ahmadinejad is not a smart plotter
. If he planned to reduce the clerics to irrelevance, he should have offered a coalition government to the secularists and have moved openly against Khamenei back a few years ago. By oppressing the revolt, he made sure the secularists would never trust him.
Can't anybody just assassinate Khamenei and cause the islamic system to implode?
