WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON IN IRAN?


THIS IS AN IMAGE FROM A SUPPOSED "PRO AHMAINEJAD" RALLY. SEEMS A LITTLE PHOTOSHOPPED HUH?


What's going in Iran right now is obviously despicable and also really telling of the times we live in. For all our bravado on the growth of humanity we can simply look at the fraudulent re-election of Ahmadinejad and then the violent way he is dealing with the detractors to see where we really are. I recently found over at BOING BOING a really great list of not only services to help keep in touch with what's going on during Ahmadinejad's media blackout but also to learn about the Iranian culture. Remember, the problems here as often it is with America are coming from the Government not the people. Let's not turn this fight against oppression into the same us-vs-them attitudes that came after 9/11.

Here's the list:
