Such a sad video

So much angst. Of course a lot of this has been caused by the western governments of the world (mainly USA and UK). It has been such a struggle for many generations of Iranians. Many of their great minds and activists were killed or silenced a long time ago. A movie that helped me understand the history of Iran and the struggles they had to go through is linked below, Persepolis, a 2007 French animated film based on Marjane Satrapi's autobiographical graphic novel of the same name. The story follows a young girl as she comes of age against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution.
