The top of the canister nearest to the heel of the shoe appears to be cut off at an angle that is not natural. The bottom of the canister is clearly
rounded. The top is cut on a jagged line that looks circumspect as does the way the blood has pooled.
It could be legitimate it could be altered though. It’s not ideal having a 300 dpi internet image to judge that by.
In my opinion its not wise to discount that the Ashura holiday features self flatulence where people to whip and cut themselves in a symbolic gesture
of mourning and solidarity.
I think its as peculiar when Muslims do that as Christians do that by the way, but in both cases it’s a self determination and the most zealous tend
to feel the more of their own blood they draw the more pious and faithful they are to the event.
Which really does beg the honest question of how do we really know who is bloody from self flatulence, from state sponsored violence, or opposition
Hardly anyone on ATS speaks Farsi and none of the people involved are being interviewed on the spot. We are simply being shown pictures and videos
that are then editorialized by various factions looking to get a picture to speak a thousand words.
