So much for democracy and freedom of speech. The group did not mention how cutting the Iranian population's connection to the internet would stop Iran's civilian nuclear program. It is probably the same reason used for cutting medicine that keeps many alive in Iran or higher foods prices. The purpose is really to push the Iranian population to an extreme where they would rebel against their government and replace it with a puppet friendly one as Iran's neighbors.

I am a business consultant by day working to bring Iranian businesses into the international market and in the evenings a journalist. My hope is to show the real Iran to the western world.
