According to the author, the composition of policies dealing with the revolutionaries led to the collapse of the repressive apparatus. Inconsistency in repression and compromise strategy was an essential factor in the regime's repressive apparatus disability. On the one hand, This strategy led to the freedom of political prisoners. Then the regime could not arrest the opponents. On the other hand, the compromise of the regime led to the arrest of suppressive forces and dissolution of SAVAK. Finally, such policies led to the difference between military commanders to control and suppress the revolutionaries, and loss of balance of forces.
