IRAQ THE MODEL: "A group of Iraqi citizens in Al Karkh/ Khidr Al Yas arrested 6 Syrian terrorists after placing a land mine at the gate of Bab Al Mu?a dam bridge from Al Karkh side.

According to New Sabah newspaper, after a road side bomb exploded missing an American convoy that was patrolling in the area, a group of citizens who happened to be there noticed a bunch of young men who looked foreigners (turned out to be Syrians) that were gathering near the place and that looked suspicious. "

Diary from Baghdad: A Reply from Rose: "
I think the American policy towards terrorism increased hatred for America from all over the world. For my point of view, I think America did what they did in Iraq only for their interest."

iraqi wannabe: justin alexander?s blog: "I was protesting in Parliament Square once again yestarday. This time the topic was not Iraq, at least not directly. In an attempt to divert public attention from the continuing abuses of the Occupation, Tony Blair announced our of the blue last week that he will rush through a bill to turn hundreds of thousands of ordinary British citizens into criminals through banning hunting, sometheing he feels doesn't fit into our civilised world of fast food and depleted uranium bullets."

The Questing Cat: "I feel like I haven't for so long. I have 'me' time to look forward to. All my responsibilities have been lifted off my shoulders, from my job reqs, to even my weapon and IBA. Even when you are on downtime in Iraq, you are never really off."

Live From Dallas: "The university may offer some of the courses online. Then students won't need to be on campus while the security situation is bad in Baghdad. I'm really impressed by their logical plans."

Video: Purported U.S. Hostage Beheaded :: Iraq Net :: Iraq's Online News Resource: "The militant group led by al-Qaida ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi posted a gruesome video on a Web site Monday showing the decapitation of a man identified as American civil engineer Eugene Armstrong and said a second hostage ? either an American or a Briton ? would be killed in 24 hours."

MY WAR: Mass Media & Society: "This was writen and forwarded to me by a Colledge student at the University of Houston who is taking a class in Mass Media and Scoiety:

Upon researching the topic on blogs I happened upon the www.warblogs website. After reading several of the web sites, I quickly became weary of the 'jarhead' tone that seemed to be so very prevalent throughout the blogs that I happened upon."
