Revolution in Iran...

(An Iranian supporter of reformer Mir Hossein Mousavi is injured while demonstrating.)

"But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations...This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution."
John Adams, letter to H. Niles, February 13, 1818
