In both Iran and Iraq, protesters are taking to the streets with very similar goals. In Iran, people are holding anti-government demonstrations and making their desire for regime change loud and clear. In Iraq, the people there are protesting against the mullahs' regime in Iran, calling for it to be expelled to put an end to its meddling in internal affairs.
The regime is having difficulty dealing with the popular uprisings in both countries and it is increasingly resorting to crackdowns on dissent. The crackdowns are becoming quite violent and enflaming the situation even more.
