An Iranian woman raises her fist amid the smoke of tear gas at the University of Tehran during a protest on December 30, 2017.

Over the last several days, protests have been swelling in Iran. What began as apparent unrest over high prices and corruption has now turned deadly, with at least 21 killed so far.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, has blamed the nation’s “enemies” for the unrest. President Donald Trump has said it’s “TIME FOR CHANGE”. Could these protests lead to something that significant?
