JIM DUNNIGAN ON IRAN:
Meanwhile, police continue to expend a lot of effort on terrorizing the middle and upper class neighborhoods in the cities. Merchants, professionals and corrupt government officials still live pretty well, and their kids like to dress up. The Islamic lifestyle police are running into public resistance while enforcing conservative dress codes. Women, in particular, are getting more vocal in protesting the chador clad female police trying to haul them away for some clothing infraction [VIDEO] [PHOTO]. Now the police find themselves facing instant mobs of angry people intent on freeing well dressed, but religiously incorrect, prisoners. Soon enough, one of these incidents will escalate to rock throwing, tear gas and gunfire. Blood in the streets over a naked ankle.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch. And Iran may try to shut down Internet access before the elections. Were those cable-cuts practice? Or a threat?
