Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps launch 40 IRGC’s blogs

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) announced that more than forty blogs have been created to struggle against IRGC’s enemies on cyber space. This action has taken place in the township of Arak, in the southwest of the Markazi province.

These new blogs have launched to publish IRGC's dogmas and are aiming to change people's mind. Moreover, these blogs are intended to avoid current Iranian issues to be debated online and replace them instead with governmental propaganda.

It should be mentioned that The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps announced the launch of 10.000 blogs for the paramilitary Basij forces at the end of 2008 “to control the Internet and other digital devices including SMS“.
