Some Suggest Iran Is Moving to War Economy

Iran plans to cut gas imports, subsidies

It's difficult to see how they thought the Iranian public would stand for this, unless they planned to be under martial law by then.

One of the signal developments in Germany of 1938 was the completion of then Chief of Staff Ludwig Beck's calculations that Hitler's economic maneuvers were unsustainable without total mobilisation of the German economy. When he pointed this out to the Nazi leadership he was relieved of his command and resigned. Iran seems to be performing similar calculations.
