As with the protesters in Egypt, the US has no influence in Iran. What may be said is said for US consumption and for consumption outside Iran. In Egypt, the US had some small influence only with the military. With Iran it is an internal matter with lots of outside interest and no influence. As to the Parliament members calls, there are crazy people everywhere. My own Congressman thinks Hawaii either was not part of the US in the 1960s or that our current President was not of woman born. Go figure.
