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."
