Iraq: photos + « Previous | |Next »
November 20, 2004

Iraqi page over at EastSouthWestNorth. It is the best collection of stuff I've come across. Lots of photos from Fallujah that indicate the chaos of daily life and the suffering of Iraqi civilians.

Bell's conception of Iraq needs to be questioned, as it is not a black and white situation any more. (A very odd lefty anti-war conception of good and bad.)

We should not ignore this kind of report by Hannah Allam from Knight Ridder Newspapers, who is working and living in Baghdad. From the looks of that account the Western news corps will have to move on. It is simply too dangerous for them to stay in the civil war.

We do need to remember that the Coalition of the Willing did remove a hated murderous regime. And we also need to remind ourselves that this is also a war where many of the Islamic terrorists are beheading hostages (eg., CARE worker Margaret Hassan) and deliberately killing innocent Iraqi civilians so as to throw Iraq into chaos.

Go read Juan Cole.
