Man Hamoon Iranam



A quote from my blog on Sunday, June 24, 2007:

Got dissidents?

"Iran is in the throes of one of its most ferocious crackdowns on dissent in years, with the government focusing on labor leaders, universities, the press, women’s rights advocates, a former nuclear negotiator and Iranian-Americans, three of whom have been in prison for more than six weeks."

Because they know nobody will do anything about it. See Cuba. See China. Move along, there's nothing to see here. Enjoy your latte. Would you like pistachios with that?
And I'm pessimistic about this year's uprising, but hoping for change.
