blogging Iraqi style

Rather than read the now eleven-comment Iraq-themed thread below wherein two academics sitting comfortably in their rooms debate the meaning of words (see entry of December 16, 2006), I have a better suggestion for regular readers: read Iraqi blogs.

The BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/talking_point/6194329.stm) has published excerpts and links to five of them today:

iraqirocker.blogspot.com
firstwordsfirstwalkfirstiniraq.blogspot.com
neurotic-iraqi-wife.blogspot.com
nabilsblog.blogspot.com
astarfrommosul.blogspot.com

I must protest in the strongest terms at your calling me an "academic".

You've got me on sitting in my room, though. Good guess.

I commend to your readers who don't already know it this Iraqi blog:

As a matter of fact, the Feminist Press has just published two volumes of Riverbend's blog under the title Baghdad Burning. See the review in the January 11, 2007 issue if the New York Review of Books.
