Iraq [Sep. 1st, 2003|09:43 am]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!
Maybe old news for the true Iraq-junkies but another blog from Baghdad:

http://riverbendblog.blogspot.com/

this one by a woman, joining Salam Pax

http://dear_raed.blogspot.com/

Even better, the Aug 31 entry on dear_raid is a rebuttal to riverbend's posts about the death of al-Hakim. Notably because it's thoughtful and respectful, something currently absent from American discourse.

Now besides the obvious conclusions one might draw from these blogs -- that officials of the US government are either fantastically deluded or inveterate liars, or both -- they are both examples of outrageously good writing. They have a huge, dire subject to inspire them, for sure, but they just plain write well, and are a joy to read. For me, to read them is to admire them, and worry for their safety.
