Baghdad Burning

Via Buzzflash

Here's a great, great new blog written by some woman in Baghdad. Surprisingly, she isn't posting about the schools and hospitals re-opening (after we bombed the hell out of the country).

The remarkable thing about this blog is her ability to frame this occupation through the eyes of a "regular" citizen. (She could be royalty for all I know, but the prose is very down-to-earth.)

This comment really struck a chord with me for some reason...

As my mother constantly says, “Kul wahid yihtajleh galub memdeshen”, or “every person [you listen to] requires an brand new heart”. This is usually said when anticipating a sad, frustrating story. Every story begins with a deep *sigh* and ends with an “Allah kareem”.
