The ‘regime’ in Iran

Apparently, the state of affairs in Iran is creating paranoia…

So says an article in Time – Paranoid in Tehran.

I started to read it with some interest, looking for the political slant.
I didn’t have to get any further than the opening line.

” The U.S. talks about regime change and promoting democracy, but all it’s done is turned Iran into an even more oppressive police state.”

So… what be the difference between a regime and a government – barr the emotional connotations?
