Iran


This morning's news reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that Iran is moving toward becoming a military dictatorship. Nice that she said it openly when most people have felt that way for a long time. The current government is more repressive than many during the cold war. It is all about control. Control information and you can control the minds of the people. Suppress free speech and eliminate dissidents. As I think about this it might have a positive reaction. The people in Iran listen to news from the western world and once they start thinking about the perception of others of their government they might do something to stop the effort. President Mahmud Ahmadinejad feels that he has everything under control but I think he is mistaken. People can only be pushed so far before they push back.
