Internet Internet Control: Silencing Freedom of Speech Iran



The Tundra Tabloids has been on record ages ago predicting that if/when the Iranian regime becomes a de-facto nuclear power, that’s when you’ll see human rights violations and crackdowns on the Persian people like never before.

  1. First stonings and now internet use? When will Iran ever stop?

    Those guys have their entire country locked up.
