People are so happy in Iran: Source of cries for help?

Reader comment on item: Prepare to attack [Iran]
in response to reader comment: guard your faith

There are underground websites begging the West for help. If everyone is so happy, why is that? Women especially say they are very unhappy and that they have been treated like garbage since Khomenei first took over. Why do you suppose that is?

They fear telling the truth in Iran because of intimidation. What kind of happiness is that? And people who left Iran aren't hurrying back. Why do you suppose that is? Food for thought.
