Google Launches Farsi Translations

Google has just announced a new service to translate Farsi text is now available. The search engine also relaxed it’s rules on violent content to allow posts from Iran to be disseminated globally. All this makes for an interesting contrats to their deals with China to make sure their internet remains clean of images from the Tiannamin uprising or other forms of public dissent. The US government also asked Twitter earlier this week to reschedule its maintenance so as not to disrupt service to Iranians tweeting news to the outside world. So even if Obama has remained relatively silent on the events, it’s clear there is some form of tacit support from the powers that be. I’m sure the Islamic establishment boys can find a way to use this as evidence that the great enemy is fomenting revolution on Iranian soil, once again, and well, who’s to say they aren’t.
