The Tree of Liberty

I had hoped against hope that any change and reform in Iran would be peaceful.  I was remembering the 1986 People Power Revolution in the Philippines.  But the Basij, which is the Iranian regime's non-uniformed Gestapo, is murdering innocents who only want their voices heard.  If there is a revolution, it's going to be bloody.  I hope, at least, that it's successful.

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
Thomas Jefferson
