The revolution strikes back

This week happens also to be the 25th anniversary of the
liberation of Khorramshahr, a bloody Iranian victory during the eight-year “imposed war” against Iraq. All week footage of the fighting has been broadcast on television, even filling the half-time gap in the European football cup final between AC Milan and Liverpool (which soccer-mad Iranians watched avidly). The Iran-Iraq war cost Iran
hundreds of thousands of lives, helping to consolidate the very revolution Saddam Hussein had foolishly attacked. Posters of the martyrs still adorn the streets of Tehran.


That has a star wars connotation
