"History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it."-Winston S. Churchill

"The wandering scholars were bound by no lasting loyalties, were attached by no sentiment of patriotism to the states they served and were not restricted by any feeling of ancient chivalry. They proposed and carried out schemes of the blackest treachery."-C.P. Fitzgerald.

An Outstanding Pair of Blogs 

First, allow me to steer you towards The Messopotamian, a fine blog by a member of Baghdad's middle class. Like Healing Iraq, Zayed's masterpiece, The Messopotamian gives Americans and others a valuable insight into the thoughts of representative samples of Iraq's middle classes.

These two blogs, among others, convince me that there will be no Saddamist Restoration.

Finally, a blog I stumbled across two days ago has a thorough and complete strategic survey of the war on terror. Go to The Belmont Club for a superb rendering of the war every two or three days.

Finally, Josh Chafetz of Oxblog gave a stirring defense of the Occupation at a debate given in the Oxford Union three nights ago. It is reproduced at the link and is a must read.
