Iran cracks down on Web usage

The WSJ reports that the Islamofascist president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has initiated a sweeping crackdown on Internet usage that includes bans on YouTube, Amazon, and Wikipedia. They're also requiring all bloggers to register with the government, and some critical minded bloggers have already been tossed into jail on charges of "insulting the prophets." High speed connections have also been outlawed.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that Ahmadinejad evidently enjoyed watching unveiled female dancers (gasp) during a recent visit to Qatar.
