Videos of what is happening in Iraq every single day

Saturday, July 14, 2007

If anyone is wondering what it is like in Iraq everyday go ahead and watch the video that is embedded in this page:

The Guardian's award-winning photographer and filmmaker Sean Smith spent two months embedded with US troops in Baghdad and Anbar province. His harrowing documentary exposes the exhaustion and disillusionment of the soldiers

Here is another video from the NY Times. Make sure you watch the whole thing near the end there is a painful story.

Uh oh... Another leaked memo portrays the US green zone in Iraq to be totally unsafe to walk around in unless you have your flak jacket on. The green zone is meant to be a supposedly safe zone.

There are places in this world that the U.S. doesn't belong period. The middle east is one of those places. Al qaeda is not in Iraq and that is who attacked us. Here is a New York Times article describing just that. The administration keeps saying that we are fighting Al qaeda in Iraq. It is a convenient thing to say because it gives reason for us to be there.

And another article about the use of the words Al Qaeda when talking about Iraq.
