  1. There are even more than you realize who are victims of this, for example in Bahrain, Kuwait, Russia, and many other countries. 

  2. P.S. And it’s NOT a coincidence!

    There are consequences for implying, much less outright stating, that the emperor is wearing no clothes (while he violates basic liberties and human rights).

    Not sure what the point of converting the fine into USD is, as the resultant sum makes the fine look pointless. Much better if they had used the local currency and added a line about the average salary.

    If the people start demanding freedom, the terrorists have already won.

  6. Big, big difference between the arrest of an Egyptian or Russian blogger for actually blogging, and detention of Jacob Appelbaum on investigation of charges for inciting and abetting theft of stolen classified cables.

      Inciting and abetting theft of classified info? Why that’s practically mass murder.

      There may be. It’s hard to tell what you are implying about what that difference is. IMO, one of the countries involved should fucking well *know better* than to act like that.
