Iran's terminal disease

Thanks to Bookworm for pointing out "Tehran's Killing Fields," which features this photo of a woman about to be stoned (polite language for being bludgeoned to death with heavy rocks):

My first thought upon reading the article was how blessed I am to be a citizen of the United States, and how most Americans (and Westerners in general) have no idea how the other half lives.

My second thought was that the Mullahs' days may be growing short. They will not be able to stifle the news coming from their neighbor to the west, and the growing discontent inside their country bodes well for the spread of freedom.

The coming years will be interesting indeed.
