curious2 | 5 years ago | Reply Unfortunately he's not the guy that actually runs the country - the real power lies in the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei - that same guy who promotes death chants against various countries he considers enemies. Iran remains an enigma - lots of potential but still burdened by a religious leaders who don't value Democracy and tend to demonstrate warlike character. Lets hope the recent changes will also change the demeanor of the religious caste.
