Howard Baskerville

These days in Iranian history are of high importance. One hundred years ago, Iranian people and scholars stood together to limit the power of the King and this uprising against the king was named Iran's Constitutional Revolution and during these days in August, we commemorate the 100th anniversary of this movement and we also commemorate the historical fact that Iranian people were the first nation in the middle-east to rise up and limit the powers of their ruling monarch in a constitutional revolution like modern European nations.

Having said that, there is an unknown hero we dearly remember in Iran, and this man was an American citizen who stood shoulder to shoulder with his Iranian brothers and fought for their freedom and gave his life for their cause as well. He should be remembered and appreciated!

Howard Baskerville became Iran's first American martyr and hero!

I thought I should appreciate his sacrifice in my homeland and allocate a simple post on him so every one who doesnt know about him, becomes aware of this hero.

1. Thanks Winston for this post. I actually didn't know about him. I learned something.

2. ahmad-ali, I know people like you eat shit regularly because their empty heads cannot recognize shit from other things, and that is why they think others are like them. But my dear, we don't eat the same food as you people... We eat steak and drink wine. Or something like this... Civillized people don't eat shit my dear, you do... So first go and learn what is the common food amongst general people then leave gifts behind people's doors.

Winston you need to go into your settings > archiving > and change the "enable post pages" to "yes" - then the "link to this post" option will appear if i'm not wrong. Let me know how it goes.

Being a missionary myself, I had heard of him. We, missionaries, often are accused of being "spies" when in reality we just become so immersed in our adopted land and see the evil affecting our friends and neighbors, in Christian love, we must help if possible.

I think i know what you need to change: go to "Settings" > "Comments" > and change the "Backlinks" to "Show"...

I think that should solve it
