what is support like in the rural parts of Iran? from what I understand about modern history, we (USA / west) installed the Shah who was a serious piece of shit. they correctly overthrew him, but in the aftermath all that united a largely illiterate populace was islam and hence the militant theocracy that exists now?

let’s say the unrest progresses to a point where the gov is threatened, will the rural parts of iran support this action or come to aid the government again?
