Online in Iran

I’m making use of a neat feature on my contact page. There’s a bunch of people willing to provide an online status indicator for AIM, ICQ, MSN, Odigo and Yahoo messenger programs.

My AOL and ICQ status indicator comes courtesy of Ben Hammersley. Thanks, Ben.

Mr. Hammersley is in Tehran right now. I guess when he booked his flight he didn’t realise he’d be winging his way to one third of an evil axis.

I mean really, he should have gone to a country that’s part of the good guy’s alliance like Saudi Arabia. After all, if the Saudis were the top exporters of terrorists then surely Dubya would have included them on his list of evildoers.

I think a lot of people, not just Colin Powell and Tony Blair, were surprised by Bush’s inclusion of Iran alongside Iraq and North Korea. Iran didn’t even feature in Charles Johnson’s "Who do we attack next?" poll.

"We are at war with Eurasia. We have always been at war with Eurasia."
