PRESERVING THE REPUBLIC REQUIRES THWARTING THE REVOLUTIONARIES:

Iran hardliners condemn Khatami (BBC, 5/06/08)

Members of Iran's parliament have made a formal complaint to the intelligence minister over remarks made by former President Mohammad Khatami. [...]

Mr Khatami's remarks have been interpreted as suggesting that Iran supports insurgents in other countries.

"What did the Imam [Khomenei] mean by exporting the revolution?" he asked in a speech on Friday to university students.

"Did he mean that we take up arms, that we blow up places in other nations and we create groups to carry out sabotage in other countries? The Imam was vehemently against this and was confronting it," he said.

Iran has assassinated dissidents all over Europe and also in South America. I believe there are even a couple of suspect cases here in the US and in Canada. Many of these occurred while Khomeini was alive, although the bombings in Argentina were later.
