It looks beautifu!
A nice reminder of the cultural life baried beneath the constant! depressive, war and terrorism stories coming from the middle east.

Dear Mr Uskowi,

I've been visiting your blog since its early days on a regular daily basis and have enjoyed the factual reporting agenda you and your co authors have set and maintained in the past years.

However I find it unfortunate that a very important headline escaped your attention last week.

David Sanger from New York Times informs that “Obama Order Sped Up Wave of Cyberattacks Against Iran,”

this is a story of America’s first sustained use of cyberweapons against a foreign adversary.

I believe it deserves your attention

Dear Leopersia,

Cyber attacks indeed need to be covered and studied very carefully. In this blog, we have extensively covered the news on Stuxnet, including our 16 April 2011 entry, “Iran Official Links Stuxnet to US and Israel.” On Wednesday we covered the news on Flame, “Iran Under Cyber-Attack by Data-Mining Virus.” But I agree with you that we should have covered Mr. Sanger’s important piece and thank you so much for providing the link. I guess we need to incorporate the content in our future post on cyber attacks.

Thanks again for your continued support during these five years.
