One person who isn’t sure is Ayatollah Khamenei. Reports say that he has a plane fueled and ready to go if things go from bad to worse.
By way of Gateway Pundit we see this letter posted via Planet Iran.
The letter reads.

I don’t what we would end up with in Iran if the regime falls, but it is hard to imagine it could be worse that what we have now.
We should pray for the Iranian people that this bloody clash ends with minimal casualties and with freedom as the victor.

I think the fall is inevitable as the people are not afraid of dying for their cause. Iran will get a secular government that will have a diversity of leanings. It will be definitely better than the Islamic regime that views us as the great Satan. As you wrote, "How much worse can it get from there?" The amusing thing is what we tried to do in Iraq with our troops will be will done in Iran with their people.

I really do hope this is the case, but I cannot get my hopes up. Yes, please pray for all the Christians living in Iran and for their safety. Christians in the middle east always bear the brunt of any civil unrest.

So many evils from Iran's government over the past 30 years. I would hope that a new government more beholden to the people would cease to export radical/violent Islam and give up its pursuit of nuclear weapons. The best way for regime change to happen is an internal revolution, rather than another war. I wish our president would speak out clearly in favor of freedom, and in solidarity with the protesters.

What does the fall of Iran entail?
The thing is if Iran falls, USA will be overstretched. It hardly has enough troops for Iraq and Afghanistan, it cant take on a third front. The rest of the Western world will not suport USA this time.
If USA does take on iran, she iwll not have enough trrops to gurad her own borders and that is where the next attack will come from.
Does USA realize the number of terrorist muslims that exist in Canada, not ot mention crazy LTTE Srilankans
