There's no "moderates" in Iran's dictatorship

Just like there's no "moderate" Islam, there's also nobody rational in Iran's vile, repellent autocratic government, as a writer for the Federalist makes clear:
If Iran is the most prominent state sponsor of terrorism in the world, can its president be called a “centrist?” What about if under that president Iran has become the world’s leading executioner of all people per capita, and of women and children on an absolute basis?

Does a president termed the “Diplomatic Sheikh,” a man who brags about deceiving the West in negotiations to buy time to advance Iran’s nuclear program; who describes such diplomatic engagement as “jihad;” and who calls for still more “jihad and resistance” against Israel while pointing 250,000 rockets at it, strike you as “centrist?”

If that president served for 40 years at the highest levels of the Islamic revolutionary regime as the first official following the overthrow of the shah who, standing steadfast at Ayatollah Khomeini’s side, called for public executions to chill opponents of the revolution, can he rightly be called a “centrist?” And how, pray tell, are we to distinguish between this supposedly centrist president and the Khomeinist regime under which he serves in the first place?

In Iran, “hardliner” supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khameini is truly supreme. Khameini blesses or directs every aspect of national policy. The president is constitutionally subordinate. Further, the supreme leader has power direct and indirect over the Guardian Council, which is responsible for vetting and approving all presidential candidates, not to mention ratifying all legislation parliament passes.
It makes no difference whether Iran's replaced a lot of their "presidents" over the years every 8 or so; what surely matters most of all is that they all must adhere to Islamic sheikhs who give the main commands. And, worst of all, they adhere to Islam.

Sooner or later, forces who care will have to start raiding Iran if that's what it takes to stop their tyranny once and for all.
