No holiday is dearer to the hearts of the Iranian people than Nowruz. But this year, many of my friends in Tehran will not be taking vacations. Instead, they're planning to take to the streets yet again, in bold defiance of the warnings of the regime and the pleas of their parents.
As the demonstrations in Iran continue, sooner or later, the demonstrators are going to need the support of a leader. Otherwise, the demonstrations may disintegrate, due to factionalism and dispute over how to continue.
