The President of Iran has joined millions of other bloggers in the blogosphere. In his first post, Mahmood Ahmadinejad gives a fairly lengthy autobiography of himself, describing his early life, growing up in a poor family in a remote village of Garmsar, and some of the events in Iran as well as the Iranian-Iraqi war. He also uses this new pulpit to blast the U.S. or as he calls it, 'The Great Satan'. While I can't really blame him for decrying the United States and all it has done against Iran, such as backing Iraq against them and supplying Iraq with weapons of mass destruction (WMD's) and intel which it used to devastating effect against the Iranians, I must say I don't much care for Ahmadinejad's religious extremism, or really for that matter any religious extremism. I would probably give his chances as fairly slim for fighting a propaganda war in this fashion as he's going up against nearly 25,000 Israeli backed cyber propagandists who have already got him on their radar. If you want to check out his blog, it is available in Arabic, English, Persian and French here. One item there of note is a poll which asks the question: "Do you think that the US and Israeli intention and goal by attacking Lebanon is pulling the trigger for another word war?"
A better question might have been "Is religion the cause of all wars?"
