Iraqi Army Aids San Diego Arson Victims

"Iraqi Army Takes Up Collection For SoCal Fire Victims" - Dateline Baghdad - "Members of the Iraqi Army in Besmaya collected a donation for the San Diego, Calif., fire victims Thursday night at the Besmaya Range Complex in a moving ceremony to support Besmaya’s San Diego residents.

"Iraqi Army Col. Abbass, the commander of the complex, presented a gift of $1,000 to U.S. Army Col. Darel ...."

I didn't see this in the news, either.

Naturally enough: no IEDs, no pathetic victims (apart from the people in San Diego), no American brutality.

Maybe I'm getting cynical.

Nope: this should be a rather big deal in the news, and it isn't. The problem may lie in the post's subtitle: "The Truth Of Iraq And How America And Iraq Are Winning The War."

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.
