Wall Street Journal Addresses Belarussian Situation

Thanks to Discoshaman for the heads up.

No real surprises here, except that Patio Pizza, a lively joint in the center of Minsk where I've eaten on a couple of occasions with the Mrs., now takes on a more sinsiter overtone:

(Opposition politician) Mr. Lebedko, for one, is hardly unaware of whom he's dealing with: On Oct. 18 last year, the day after Belarus's rigged parliamentary elections and constitutional referendum, security-service agents dragged him into a pizza parlor across the street from October Square in downtown Minsk and beat him until he was unconscious.
