Philosopher and leader intellectual reformist Mohsen Kadivar warned Ali
Khamenei, Iran's Supreme Leader, of facing a similar fate to that of Algeria's Bouteflika and Sudan's Bashir.
In an article published in Saham News, Kadivar, a political dissident, said that people in Iran accuse Khamenei of dereliction, as he has ignored meeting the basic needs of the Iranians, to spend money, in exchange, for purposed outside Iran.
He said that "Iranian state, which is helpless against floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters should make scientific prediction, tracking to reduce damages, harms and disasters as its first priority.
"Why do the people's money go to luxury issues such as nuclear energy or the ambitious targets like medium and long-range missiles?," Kadivar wondered.
"The IRGC defended Iran's borders in the war with the regime of Saddam Hussein and faced separatist armed groups, but after the war with Saddam Hussein, the Revolutionary Guards became the guardian of religious autocracy," he said.
