Iran Cracking down Killing 1500

I've Been Thinking:
Iran is experiencing a phenomenon not typically seen in that country - huge protests.
According to Reuters Media which quoted three separate Iranian Interior Ministry sources, 1500 Iranian protestors and security officers have been killed since December 16th.
That would make this the bloodiest two weeks in Iran since the 1979 Revolution.
The sources say that orders came from the highest level of leadership to shut down the protests and the anti-government movement fueling the protests. In Iran, “shutting down” often mean kill.
The Supreme Leader has demanded that the protests stop now – if not he will hold the leaders of the protest responsible. According to a source in the inner circle of the government, the Grand Ayatollah said: “The Islamic Republic is in danger. Do whatever it takes to end it. You have my order.”
At first, Amnesty International and other groups originally estimated 300 deaths.
We don’t know how this will end, but we do know that, for Iran, this is transformative. Iranian leadership is running scared.
