Last month two brave Swedes wearing teddybear masks took off in a small plane from Lithuania and flew unannounced into the airspace of Belarus armed only with a sense of humor and parachute equipped teddybears. The plush arrivals carried leaflets proclaiming "We support the Belarusian struggle for freedom of speech." As noted on their website: "A dictator can be hated, despised or feared. The only thing he cannot survive is being laughed at." The oppressive leader of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, now knows what it is like to be laughed at. And the people of Belarus now know that the world has seen their plight.
