Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has recently started his “own blog”:http://www.ahmadinejad.ir/. There’s a link to the English-language site. [“RFE/RL via Payvand News”:http://www.payvand.com/news/06/aug/1152.html].
FYI, Ahmadinejad’s 60 Minutes interview, which aired last night, can be found “here.”:http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/08/09/60minutes/main1879867.shtml
Kim Jong-il has had “his own blog”:http://users.livejournal.com/kim_jong_il__/ for a while and seems to have resumed updating it.
The official DPRK page (http://www.korea-dpr.com) is pretty silly in and of itself, as I’m sure you know. Authoritarian nations seem to always have bad web design; too bad the USSR folded before the Internet took off in a big way.
The best part are the differences in “message” that you get if you select different languages on their main menu page: http://www.korea-dpr.com/menu.htm
For America, you get a lovely crest of lightning and olive wreaths (http://www.korea-dpr.com/users/usa/).
For Russia, you get a mushroom cloud and text decrying the horrible United States (http://www.korea-dpr.com/users/russia/).
Got to keep your content specialized, of course.
