Iranian Protests

Protests against the Iranian government are spreading in Iran.

The danger for the West is that the more Western leaders speak out in support of the protesters, especially Trump and Netanyahu, the easier it is for the regime to claim that the protesters are tools of the foreign enemies of the state.
