Millions of Iranians have taken to the streets to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution. Demonstrators chanted slogans against Israel and the hostile policies of the US. President Hassan Rouhani said threats against Iran are worthless and childish. On this edition of the Debate we will discuss the level of public support for the Islamic Republic and the amount of pressure exerted on the country from the west. Guests: - Professor, University of Tehran, Mohammad Marandi (Tehran). - Center for American Progress & former US Assistant Secretary of Defense, Lawrence J. Korb (Washington). Subjects: 1) What do you think about the level of public support for the Islamic Republic? 2) How has the western approach encompassing threats and pressure affected Iranian public opinion? 3) Why is the US saying all options are still on the table? 4) Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the rhetoric of threat against the Iranian nation is \"worthless and childish.\" Do you agree? 5) What is the aim of the sanctions? Has the US been trying to fuel dissent in Iran? Is the US after regime change in Iran? 6) Do you think that if Iran ends its nuclear activities the US enmity will also end? 7) What is the position of the west versus Iran? Will it consider engaging in a win-win situation if not giving concessions? 8) Iran argues if the west was truly concerned about nuclear weapons in the region it would have confronted Israel...what is it about Iran that the west is attempting to confront?
