The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Dictatorship Shot of the Day

Didn't post a "Dictator" yesterday, though I did post a "Kitty-tator." Close enough, right? Now, we continue our quest to illustrate true dictatorship to the masses with this photograph from Iran, which is a billboard of supreme mullah Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in the background of a truck carrying a missile. This shot is not quite as iconic as the Soviet missile parades back in the 1950's, but it still illustrates my point nicely. There is plenty of freedom in Iran, so long as you toe the party line.

In front of a picture of supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, a missile of Iranian armed forces is displayed during a parade ceremony, marking the 26th anniversary of the outset of the Iran-Iraq war (1980-1988), in front of the mausoleum of the late revolutionary founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, just outside Tehran, Iran, Friday, Sept. 22, 2006.
