Reds dominate

Another day in the February Revolution: The State Duma is dissolved. Troops fire into the crowds; some troops are disarmed and killed by the mob.  Significantly, the first open mutiny occurs.  Alexandra writes to Nicholas: " .. they say it's not like 1905, the people adore you, they only want bread".   She's got it badly wrong, but doesn't know it yet. The Reds are starting to dominate.  A bit like these peppers.
