Over the past few months, I’ve written about the explosion of blogs. (Part IPart II, for those who are interested). The blogosphere is doubling every six months… some 1.2 million new blogs every day! (Figures courtesty of BGE and Technorati). Well, one of the newest… is well… bound to be a tad controversial.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has launched a blog, which can be found here. Mahmoud who you may ask. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian President. Iran was part of the so called “axis of evil” proclaimed by President DickWad. (I know I went all Fuck Off Krispy Kreme there, but I’m tired and grumpy). Ahmadinejad swept to a surprise victory in last year’s presidential race by promising the country’s poor a fairer share of Iran’s oil wealth and emphasising his own humble origins that led many to vote for him as an “outsider” to Iran’s ruling elite. His defiance in the stand-off with the West has often played well in the Muslim world, where many are angered by U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. His first post is not much more than a quick autobiography, but future posts should make very, very interesting reading. Even more so, when the focus of US Foreign Policy shifts away from Lebanon and Israel back towards Iran, as it is sure to do.

BTW… while visiting Mahmoud’s blog don’t forget to talk part in his online poll. This months question: “Do you think that the US and Israeli intention and goal by attacking Lebanon is pulling the trigger for another word war?”.
