Three of the countless Iranians arrested for protesting the country’s June election results were tried and sentenced to death this week. That should put to rest any fantasy that Iran is somehow a democracy and not just another dictatorship run by jack-booted thugs posing as religious figures. Theyre’ going to make damn sure that people think twice before speaking out of turn again. And if that wasn’t enough, there are allegations that some defendants were tortured into confessing, and others raped while in custody.

Yup, that’ll teach ’em.
