Iran: August 1, 1999



The head of the Revolutionary Guard has threatened action against any newspapers that "insult" the Revolutionary Guard. Brigadier General Rahim Safavi said that he meant legal action, not mobs of armed paramilitary troops as was used against student demonstrators in early July. But on the same day a security officer was reported killed in a shootout in eastern Iran, Islamic vigilantes beat a know dissident and students suspected of participation in last months demonstrations are still being arrested.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
