Freedom? I don’t think so.
An article from the AFP is reporting on a full blown governmental crackdown on people who are wearing un-islamic clothing. Some examples of excessive clothing are:
    - women who were badly veiled, wore overly tight overcoats, sported excessively short trousers
       and were "dressed like models."
    - men who have Western-style haircuts and clothing

Women in Iran are obliged to cover all bodily contours and their heads, but in recent years many have pushed the boundaries by showing off bare ankles and fashionably styled hair beneath their headscarves.
The policy will be first to give a verbal warning to those who infringe the law and, if necessary, they will then be arrested and taken for "consultation." Uh huh.
They did that in Soviet Russia as well, except back then it was called “re-education.”
This new plan to “increase security in society" is a bunch of BS. How can we honestly hope to ever get Democracy in a society that doesn’t allow even the most basic of freedoms: the freedom to wear whatever one wants? This ‘war’ for Democracy in Iraq is a joke. Islamic countries by their very nature will never be free because religion here is not a choice – it’s the Law.
