Cries for Help from Iranian Web Activists Go Unheeded
by Kaveh Azad


For the U.S. government, helping Iranian activists circumvent government social media controls is a cheap and no-risk way to promote democracy and battle a hostile regime.

Iranian aggression began in 1979, with the seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, and the holding of some of its staff as hostages for 444 days. Major subsequent attacks included two bombings in Beirut in 1983: at the U.S. embassy, killing 63, and at a U.S. Marine barracks, killing 241.

The Iranian-backed attack on the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983 killed 242, still Tehran's single largest number of Western fatalities. more
