Inside Iraq

It is easy to treat the war in Iraq as a problem in American politics. Most of the news sees Iraq from the outside. If you want to see it from the inside and don't read Arabic, try this blog, Inside Iraq, which is written by Iraqis who work at the McClatchy Baghdad News Bureau. In line with my resolution to restrict my commentary to items with a certain historical perspective, I'm going to put a permanent link to this forum on my sidebar.

It's strong stuff, hard to read, but if you read it you will (a) learn any number of things and (b) find it difficult to feel that Iraq and its problems are on a different planet. Especially if you've ever played Diablo or Grand Theft Auto.
