Iraq: Blogging the war and the occupation

Blogs are powerful tools and I think they have come into their own during this Iraq conflict. While iraq.jpgthe American and British governments have all the power of the world’s most powerful media at their beck and call, the ordinary people living in the conflict zone have blogging to tell their stories.

Here are links to a few:-
