    • Abstract:
      Suppressed by religious leaders, some Iranians would welcome a U.S. invasion. The 300 people gathering in Baghdad last week represented nearly every faction and religious group in Iraq. Brought together by U.S. officials, they will meet again in about a month to decide whether their country will adopt a leadership council or single head of state. Among them were members of the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq, which wants to create a strict Muslim state similar to the one in neighboring Iran. Iranians' biggest ally may be a democratic Iraq in which religion and individual rights coexist, and from where tolerance and prosperity just might spread and bring the downfall of Iran's religious regime. Weaving through the congestion of Tabriz, a city of more than one million in the northwest of the country, Abbas, a taxi driver, says he lived in America for two years, then returned to Iran in 1997 following the election of reformist President Mohammad Khatami. But democracy never materialized under Khatami, and Iran's Muslim leaders continue to control virtually every facet of life. With their faith in Khatami's ability to overthrow the clerics at low ebb, Iran's youth, over-educated and underemployed, are banking that America's promise to bring democracy to Iraq will also include them.
