What if the Ayatollah rejects the treat?

Reader comment on item: A Tiny Silver Lining in the Otherwise Bad Iran Deal

Submitted by Lyle Smith (United States), Sep 11, 2015 at 10:00

What if the the Ayatollah rejects the treaty? I've read he's been quiet on the treaty and hasn't offered his public support for it yet. Could he still reject it for the exact reasons you are staing, which would be that the treaty could possibly erode his authority in Iran?

The treaty would be a success if it did lead to a change in rule in Iran. That would be awesome.
