    do you have any pictures of the opposition crackdown in
    i really dont give a hoot any more what we here in the u.s do while
    implementing our brand of imperialism on other sovereign
    nations, but i find it more and more difficult to suffer fools who
    either are maliciously leading the sheep astray or foolishly
    following along after the propaganda ministry’s pronouncements.

    Juan Cole and Steve Clemons, with combined reader stats of perhaps several hundred thousand, are following Iran events. CNN and BBC have other priorities. Fox follows but frames events as “should the US intervene?”. Tehran Times leads with angst over the Chinese yuan with nada on the largest Iranian riots in 30 years. China Daily has pics of protestors chasing Iranian security, but doesn’t mention any current dynamic, such as why and how. India times leads stories of a 22 year old who kidnaps himself and shows up to claim the rewward, and pics of JFK romp with naked ladies. Norway Post says snow clearing may take days and under “W” in main menu has “Worship” instead of “World”. The Australian wonders about US airliner plot accomplices and studies the Alfa Romeo yacht. Argentina aggregated news leads with first gay Latin American marriage, opines about the Colombian peso, and features the late Miss Argentina who dies after plastic surgery on her butt. We cringe at the outcome of voters who believe that if it isn’t reported it doesn’t happen. True elsewhere too.

    People getting killed in Honduras, too!
    Why should TWN cover this? Honduras is now perhaps
    the most prominent dictatorship in the Western
    Hemisphere, reversing two decades of democratization
    throughout the region. Obviously reversing democracy
    is an ominous trend to many, though perhaps not to
