Back To The Future - Iranian Style

Is it just me or does this:

look an awful lot like this?

The former is the "Karrar" drone built by the Iranians and translated into the really scary cool name: "Ambassador of Death."  Well, more properly according to Achmadinijad: "an ambassador of death for the enemies of humanity, [which] has a main message of peace and friendship."   The latter is the V1 "Buzz bomb" of Nazi Germany, responsible for so many pensioners in England, after World War II.

What is it about Jew-hating fascists that gets them to the same place?

Perhaps the only good news coming out of that sicko state is documented in an excellent piece by Michael Ledeen in this morning's Wall Street Journal:  "Cracks in the Iranian Monolith."  The article documents the continuing unrest and some of the lame attempts of the regime to increase control.  Well worth the read.

It never ceases to amaze me that the tighter governments try to control people, to tell them how to run their lives, the more people rebel.  Is it actually possible that we are hard-wired for freedom and personal liberty?  Don't tell that to the Democrats in Congress just yet - let them find out in November!
