The fact is that virtually ALL Iranians view nuclear technology, including owning the fuel cycle as non-negotiable, regardless of whether they support Dinner Jacket or not. Part of this is predicated on the sense of self importance of a people with a 5,000 year old history of civilisation, the other that its national pride.
Making weapons is another factor, but to the best of my knowledge, Iran has not broken the NPT. The rest is window dressing and the shrill speechs of the AEI.
The mullahs are pretty discredited, and viewed as parasites, as films such as "The Lizard" illustrate. The last thing that any pro-democracy movement and that includes part of the Ulema, is for President Fcuknuts to go in. It's just the excuse the harder elements in their government are looking for. Nothing works better than externalising a problem !

Now there might soon be another "We have become the enemy our parents fought against.")
