  • Isn't this the SOP of a dictator? I'm not at all surprised. They haven't allowed any media people in the country since the revolt after the election in the summer. I'm surprised that he is just now getting to the internet.

  • In an effort to disrupt communications and head off huge opposition demonstrations planned for Thursday, the Iranian authorities on Wednesday drastically slowed Internet service in Iran and shut down text messaging services, and an official said that Gmail, the Google e-mail service, would be blocked.

  • Is this the thing they were going to do that would "shock" the western world on Feb. 11? If so, I must say I am confused. How does this shock us? It just didn't carry the KO that Im-a-dinner-jacket hopped it would. (I can't spell his name so I just did it phonetically!)
