I have a new blog link: Gorillas Guides.
This site is run from Ireland, with Iraqi correspondents. They're ordinary men, on the ground in Baghdad or nearby. They've all succeeded in getting their family members out of the area and have remained themselves to defend their homes.
Read what they write. It won't make you happy. But it will give you some sense of what America looks like from the other side of the gun.
Gorillas Guides wasn't intended for you. But for that reason, you should read it.
If we can ever repair this, we must start here.
