They always come for the students.

In related news, you'll notice that the "Free Speech" movement in America prioritizes engaging in "Free Speech" on college campuses.

Iranian conservatives, much like American conservatives, would rather kill than allow their archaic worldviews to change.

Conservatism is a mental sickness.

They've already arrested or killed all the teachers.

Much like conservatives want to do here in America.

I've always wondered what Iran would be today if we and the Brits hadn't overthrown their government in the early 50's and installed the Shah?

Take a look at Turkey. that's what they'd be-- they'd still be socially conservative and tend toward authoritarianism, but they still would be fairly western-friendly and our strongest middle-eastern/Asian ally against neighboring Russia.

Israel has effectively poisoned any sort of improved relationship we could have created in the coming decades.

I don't know why exactly, but I'm particularly concerned about the women in Iran right now. Maybe it's because of all the photos you see of life there pre-revolution. They look just like us.

I'm afraid the nature of the cause will necessitate a lot of women paying in blood before change comes to their country.

Women have been paying in blood from their whatevers since Eve tricked old Adam into eating that apple with her super sexy hypnotic powers. Apparently. According to bronze age theories it's the will of the gods. Or at least the will of the "big guy".

Iran: Where if you can't beat 'em, kill 'em. Or at least poison them.

That's a lot of people poisoned. How was it done? In delivered food?
