Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong Il have been quiet during the recent riots in the middle east..
are they afraid their citizens will revolt as well?
communication has to be open for people to get ideas...
do you think all the world's dictators will be overthrown soon?
Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and the Castros of Cuba have also stayed out of the limelight lately. Not all dictators will be challenged during the turmoil that has rocked the world. Dictators that have been trying to manage their country's needs and have paid some attention to their charges will avoid the chaos.
They have not been silent. For Americans, at least, the main media sources are just not reporting on what is being said.
Last night I was tutoring with a family from Iran. They watch Persian language television and also keep in close contact with family back in Iran. They commented on how the Iranian president had, in the last 24 hours (from last night), called on the Libyan president to listen to the will of the people....let change happen...
We all shared in the bitter twist when they also shared how the same Iranian government has increased repression against current and former opposition leaders... According to what we discussed, two major opposition leaders had been placed under "house arrest", but it had been discovered that these men have also been "disappeared" in the past few days...
More people are being rounded up...
The information is out there....but you have to find it...
Actually, N Korea threatened to fire on S Korea today. You're right, they don't have anything to say about the riots, but they're still up to the same stuff:
