He Blogs

If blogging was a stock, I'd probably be thinking about going short; when Iran's president starts doing it, surely everyone's in the pool. But here it is, and the first post is worth reading (click the flag at the upper right for the translation). He ends with: "I will continue this topic later on as it took long in the beginning. From now onwards, I will try to make it shorter and simpler." Wars in Iraq and Lebanon? Feeling pressure from the U.S. because of your nuclear program? Try blogging, and complex problems suddenly appear simple in comparison.

Note: The site appears to be down as of Monday morning.

If war is a continuation of diplomacy by other means, is blogging the equivalent of the blitzkrieg for public diplomacy?

I can't access your link, C.R., but I'm not surprised that the Iranian president is blogging after watching Mike Wallace's interview with him on 60 Minutes last night.

The president of Iran seems like an O.K. guy. He is not the head case that the US government and US media portrays him to be.

He had some funny things to say about President Bush that I agree with and I learned some things about him that I didn't know before, e.g., he has a Ph.D. in civil engineering.

He was right when he said the time for nuclear weapons is past and now is the time for dialogue and cultural exchanges.

BTW, he did not deny the Holocaust. He did point out that the Europeans caused it which is 100% true.

The way I see it, the US should have given Arizona to the Jews in 1948 if the Jews wanted a desert so badly. The world would have been saved a lot of trouble.

(The fact that the Roosevelt administration was blatantly anti-Semitic even during WWII is conveniently overlooked now even by the Israelis.)

I am a bit worried about the fate of Iran though after watching the interview. Remember when Dan Rather interviewed Saddam before the Iraq War? Look what that got Saddam.

Remember, too, that 60 Minutes was in North Korea not that long ago, too.

The site is back up. I checked the link to the Ayotollah's website (available in English).

The Ayotollah is sticking with "the Holocaust is a myth" according to his speech to the Iranian Airmen.

It's a wonder those Zionists have time to sleep since they are so busy creating trouble all around the world.
