In its August 12 editorial, the state-run Resalat newspaper admitted to the defection of the regime’s forces and the escalating disputes and wrote: “What is the cause behind these losses and disputes? Why those who fully supported the government, today become critics of regime?”

Describing the strategy of regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei for the unification of power, Resalat wrote, “The corruption of this crude and immature idea of unification was revealed very soon, and today we are seeing its consequences.”

It is not a specific group of media outlet that is admitting to the failure of Khamenei’s consolidated rule, the defection of its forces and the in the regime’s current deadlock. Many insiders of the regime denounce the unification theory. A few examples:

On August 9, journalist Ahmad Zeidabadi said, “Mr. Raisi’s government is the last chance for the regime. Basically, it is not possible, with this way of thinking and with these forces, the government to succeed.”
On August 6, Hassan Bayadi, the former deputy of Tehran city council, said, “It is interesting that the same sympathetic group is now divided into several factions, which shows the reason behind their failure was due to the fact that their attempts were delusional and without any plan, and that’s why it did not work.”
On August 1, economist Mohsen Renani said, “It is not clear what good they see from this unification that they don’t stop it? Did the unified government and obedient Majlis (parliament) solve the country’s problems? Why they haven’t yet figured it out? “
On July 8, regime expert Abdolreza Davari said, “The project defined as the young revolutionary believer has failed in the government of Mr. Raisi.”
On May 21, Khabar Online quoted Mansoor Haghighatpoor, the former advisor of the parliament speaker, as saying, “The official members of the Stability Front can’t fill more than two buses, and passengers of one of these buses are current members of Majlis.”
On March 29, Eghtesad newspaper quoted Hossein Marashi as saying, “I think this regime has failed, and the Islamic Republic must accept this failure, and before it’s too late, we must change direction.”

But the important point that can be seen in some of these confessions is that the failure of Raisi is not only indicative of the failure of the government but a sign of a failed policy and strategy. This strategy was supposed to go forward in compatibility with the policy of contraction and consolidated power to create a barrier against uprisings and Iran’s resistance movement.

In its editorial, Resalat refers to the failure of the consolidated government and writes, “Not just the government but the whole revolution will suffer from this impact.”

Khamenei chose this strategy to buy time, but with the progress of the uprising and resistance, the entire regime was in danger of collapse and destruction.

On August 8, Abbas Abdi, a regime’s expert from the so-called reformist faction, in referring to the dangerous effects of this failure for the integrity of the regime, said, “They will better off by eliminating others, but they do not realize eliminating others will lead to their elimination and destruction… so the faster the elimination happens, the higher the intensity of destruction will be.”

Humiliation, confusion, impasse and desperation are other signs of the failure of the consolidation project in current explosive conditions. Mehdi Nasiri, the former editor of Keyhan newspaper and one of the regime’s defectors, said, “The system is so humiliated that it kidnaps its citizens to collect blocked money… This is the ultimate decline for the system that was claiming to bring the White House into its knees, but we see that transformed Iran into a soup kitchen that trades oil for food and medicine. “
