I am an Iranian dissident living outside Iran and this guy is VERY pro-government, which is a rarity in Iran if you are following the news.. Line 41: "A message in Persian: Janam Fadaye Rahbar" Means "my life sacrificed for the Leader". Only Khamenei goons otter that. I smell something fishy. Can't be a lone hacker...

Opposition protesters have shown that within a few hours or less, the information technologies that are the mainstay of modern society can become its weapons, as well. This article examines the current situation in Iran and the part played by new media technologies and strategies, showing how far the theory and practice of netwar has advanced since the concept first emerged in the late nineties."
