Freedom Still Isn't Free

More and more, the Iranian people do not wish to be ruled by the Mad Mullahs. But Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs won’t give up control so easily, not when they’re so close to that nuclear golden ring.

Reporters Without Borders today said it was “very worried” about Abed Tavanchech, a blogger and student at Tehran’s Amirkabir polytechnic university, who has been missing since 26 May and may well have been arrested after posting photos and reports about the demonstrations taking place at his university for the past few weeks.

Two other bloggers are already in jail.

Remember, folks. These people are in jail not because they injured or killed someone, or because they stole something. They’re in prison because they dared to tell the world something their government did not like.

They desperately want what we so casually fling about every day and they’re willing to go to the mat to get it.

We should be doing everything in our power to help them. How selfish and craven would we be if we did not? How disrespectful to the memories of those who died for our freedom?
