News from Iran suggests a crackdown taking place against Iranian bloggers. Given that a huge percentage of the population is under 30, and that blogs are widely embraced by the tech-savvy portion of Iranian youth, this attack by the mullahs on youth culture will have wide ranging repercussions in the days, weeks, and months ahead. Certainly the mullahs are afraid for the continuance of their power now that Americans are at both their eastern and western borders. However, pissing off the great majority of their people evermore will only increase the opposition to the tyranny of the ruling mullahs. A future with a free, open, and dynamic Iran will transform the region and the world. Lets hope that the youth of Iran stay strong in the face of this oppression.
