    Does it matter what this air bag has to say ? Bottom line : Oppression in Iran is full steam ahead. Purges in the universities ( profs who are sympathetic to freedom and an open society- GONE. Women - BACK OF THE BUS ! Those who dream of a civil revolt from within Iran are doing just that. Recent Zogby poll reveals that only a small percentage of Iranians are on board with Western concepts. These people are the ones who were exposed to Western ideas via the Shah when he was in power and they fall into 45-60 age bracket. The majority of the youth ( Iran's FUTURE ) are virulenty anti-West. Khatami's views are just more blather and hot air .
