baghdad burning

I recently heard of this site – it’s the site of a woman in Baghdad, and is highly critical of the occupation. She seems to have the ability to look at things from both an internal and external perspective, making he a very good analyst.

The blog is, however, anonymous, meaning this blog could be written by anyone. This woman could be an ex-Ba’thist for all we know, writing to heighten criticism of the Americans. Indeed, for all you guys know, my blog might be written by a tame monkey which some guy called matt keeps as a pet and feeds squirrels to. Nevertheless, this blog is very well written, and allows one to glimpse what is truly happening in Iraq. It is also up for BBC four’s Samuel Johnson prize for non fiction

No monkeys, tame or otherwise, were hurt in making this entry.
