Death of Iranian blogger

An Iranian blogger who has been imprisoned since Oct. 30 has died in jail. Some are saying he was tortured and killed. Reason for the initial arrest, via BBC:
    "actions against national security on social networks and Facebook"
Read: he criticized his own government.

At least the Iranians are forthright about it. Here, the FBI knocks on your door and says, "We've had evidence of your extramarital affair for some time. Now that you're about to publicly blame the president for gross negligence resulting in the murder of four people, you're going to resign and not testify. Welcome to Chicago ... Washington, rather."

I wonder if the blogger incident will compel the Iranians to overthrow their Islamic masters?
