Reader Snapshot

[Andrew] I was just tooling around in the sitemeter stats pages for the Dish and found an interesting statistic. 90 percent of the readers of this site are in the U.S. 4 percent are unknown. 3 percent are from the UK. So far, so predictable. But next up is ... Iran, with 1 percent. I find that a hopeful sign. We must never, ever forget that the people of Iran are not the same as their regime. Western blogs that can help provide moral support, information and debate are potential weapons in the war against Islamism.
