With all the recent news about Iran and its election, I thought this comic was both interesting and relevant. John Cole, “Fundamentalist Islam has long been at odds with the present. And save for oil extraction technology and nuclear enrichment, the Iranian brand of it has little love for modernity. It's therefore been amusing to watch the country's regime attempt to squelch coverage of the post-stolen-election mass demonstrations and brutal crackdown. It's easy enough to sequster or deport foreign journalists. What's tough is controlling the online commentary and reportage from thousands of Iranian citizens using social-network applications like Twitter or Facebook.” Related article: Yahoo News
