Mr. Ahmadinejad joins the bloggers

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has now become the world's first head of state to have his own blog, according to this article in the online edition of Newsweek. The site, which is also available in Arabic and English in addition to Persian, may be found at I spent a few minutes looking at it before creating this post, and I will be checking it regularly in an effort -- probably futile, I realize -- to try to understand what makes this man tick.

His first post consists of a lengthy autobiographical essay, which I will not bother to describe here, except to note that Mr. Ahmadinejad is hardly likely to join U. S. Grant, Winston Churchill, Julius Caesar, and Benjamin Franklin as the author of one of the great autobiographies of all time.
