Ten Really Good Questions About Iraq and the States

Another blog's post, Let the surge run its course (July 11, 2007), started with ten excellent questions.

Eleven questions, counting the one that led the list of ten: "If we withdrew from Iraq this week..." - by grim coincidence, the House of Representatives voted to withdraw from Iraq on the next day.

I'm one of the people who don't think that abandoning Iraq to the gentle mercies of the likes of al Qaeda is a good idea. I'm also one of the people who think that 'America has problems, but America isn't the problem.'

Maybe that's why I thought made good reading.

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.
