Iraq the Model: Recommended Reading

I don't do this often, but I recommend the latest addition to my blogroll: "Iraq the Model / New points of view about the future of Iraq." Written by a graduate student, it's an in-depth of what's going on in Iraq.

And, definitely not the sort of Sixties remix that we get from places like Berkeley and Boulder.

The author is re-evaluating how he balances blog and graduate studies, so it may be a while before there's a new post. However, there's a great deal of existing material there, ready for study.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
