Please forgive my tardy acknowledgement of your contribution to the "Iran, a reflection" series.  I don't know how I missed this and I apologize.

It is a thought provoking piece, showing an accurate picture of what has been happening.  Yes, the green leaders are all people who have worked within IRI for decades.  As a result, many Iranians who live outside Iran tend to lump reformists together with other factions of IRI, saying "ba ham hich farghi nadarand."  The truth is that there are some pretty important differences.  Things were a lot different living under Khatami's presidency when reformists were in office than how they have been during Ahmadinejad's.

At any rate, it seems there are plans to crush and destroy the reformists so they won't lead any more uprisings.  I doubt the girl facing the bullet in your cartoon is going to move from where she is standing, though.  That's what people with guns should know.

I don't get it.  I don't think it explains the events in Iran. 

Perhaps since the series is about how we feel outside Iran, it explains how someone outside Iran may feel.  Perhaps a sense of confusion or a sense of left hand talking to right hand or take money from right pocket and put it in left pocket or shooting the hand that feeds, which are mostly American expressions.

Regardless of what I think, I believe it IS artistic and others are getting it, so good job. 

Everything is sacred.
