Iran has smashed the steel-toed boot down, according to the Ass Press.
The AP is reporting that Iran has just acknowledged it used security forces to violently put down protests across the country. The Iranians tried to portray the protesters as rioters or foreign-funded insurgents.
Amnesty International is estimating that 208 people were killed by the Iranian military forces. An estimated 7,000 people have been arrested.
Protests have broken out since the U.S. led embargo on Iranian goods and oil has driven the price of gasoline and other oil products in Iran up beyond what most Iranians can afford. That embargo was imposed when Iran attacked a number of foreign cargo vessels and other things around the Middle East.
This is a sign of desperation on the part of the ruling Islamic regime.
The escalating costs of living are hitting the soldiers just as hard as they are hitting the rioters.

Or as the unbelievers say, Insh'Allah, with an apostrophe in there somewhere. I'm not quite sure if I have it in the right place, in that barbaric language. But the idea's similar.

Even though they were irrelevant, I stand by my comments about the Irish, however.
