The addendum stipulated that the head of the SCAF, Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, was to remain minister of defense until a new constitution was drafted. Not any more.

In its war against the West and Israel, Iran has apparently given up its attempt to portray itself as being unaffected by the sanctions against its economy and, taking a page out of the Palestinian playbook, is now switching to the opposite approach, pushing the suffering of individual Iranians under the cruel sanctions.
