Update January 1. Analysis by Michael Karadjis

Dec. 31, 2017. People are angry in Iran. The U.S. returned tens of billions they had stolen via sanctions, but Iranians are not seeing their lives getting better. Many are angry at the billions wasted supporting Assad in Syria. Protests in many Iranian cities. Of course the regime pretends all the "unrest" is created by the U.S., Israel, the Saudis, etc. as if the people cannot think for themselves.

Of course Trump wants to stick his nose in and ruin things (maybe deliberately so he can have a war). Tell him to take his good intentions and .... stop making war on Yemen.

Good 12/31 article here at the Alliance of Syrian and Iranian Socialists

See 12/29 coverage at Syria Freedom Forever. It notes, "Demonstrators in Shiraz and Kerman Shah held banners condemning the Iranian military intervention in Syria and holding banners reading “Leave Syria and think about us”.
