Mac back

Good news. Glenn (Mac) Frazier is blogging again after a long hiatus. Back in 2002 he was the guy gathering all the Iran news. Here's a quote by him from an old post...it brings back memories.

It's things like this that make me question my own sanity.

According to several trusted email correspondents, Michael Ledeen, and a website run by a pro-democracy Iranian student organization, yesterday saw demonstrations across Iran that erupted into violence.

According to Reuters, UPI, AP, CNN, BBC, and everyone else in the whole universe...nothing. One of the biggest stories out of Iran, according to them, is that a male bellydancer has decided to continue living there despite being barred from teaching dance. What's going on?

I haven't heard from any of my sources for quite awhile, now. The SMCCDI site reported a temporary lockdown of international phone calls in Iran, then went silent ...

I'm guessing the people of Iran and their struggles will be back on the front burner before too long. Iraq has absorbed most of the attention lately, but I bet Prime Minister Allawi will think up some nasty surprises for the terrorists. And much of what's been happening in Iraq probably really is a fight with Iran, or its agents. And that's good. It seems bad at the moment, but fighting is much better than letting the problems fester and grow worse.
