Persian Letters

A Sign Of Anger In The Iranian Winter

Most probably, the last time you remember hearing about "Death in the Dictator" chants in Iran was in the summer of 2009 and the unrest that followed  Iran's disputed presidential election.

More than a year has passed. It's cold and snowing in some cities in Iran. But some Iranians don't seem to have contained their anger against Iran's leaders. Or so it seems, according to this recent picture we received from Iran.

It reads, "Death to the Dictator."

What do you care about Obama? He doesn't care about you and he won't come to liberate you anyway.
