there is the quarter million revolutionary guards, "protectors" of the revolution, heads of iran's nuclear, ballistic and all important military weapons, a kleptocracy in the nation's economic life, having displaced the bazare. then there is the youth and often their parents, with their huge numbers, who have no power but their desire for some freedom and decency. whether the unarmed youths will beat the rancid revolutionary guards is not yet known. what is known, is that a revolution can succeed only with by the will of the people and their keeping of promises for freedoms, prularity, equality, justice. therefore, if this revolution means to succeed, it must have a constitution. without a constitution, any person can claim the mantle of the revolution and instaure once again a new reign of terror. the people who fight the revolution against the tyranny must know what it is they fight for. exchanges one dictator for another would be a cruel joke.
