My favorite Iraqi blog is Iraq The Model. It's been fascinating (and a good reality check) to follow this group blog by three young, well-educated anti-Saddam Iraqi brothers, two of them dentists and one a physician. Here's a snippet :
One of my friends asked me to post his thoughts about the "Fahrenheit 9/11"
film.He'd be glad to read your e-mails in responce to it.
Well the best part goes when he suspected that the war against Taliban was
to build a pipeline through Afghanistan!! With this level of assessment I won't
be surprised if future wars will happen for building a bridge or maybe paving a
road!! And I really was shocked when he pictured Iraq like peaceful country
where children play and people laugh happily, guess what Mr. Moore you are wrong
coz I live in Iraq and children weren't playing they were working to live and
people weren’t smiling they were either afraid of getting killed or arrested for
no reason or just because they don’t like Saddam and they dared to say so.I
really don’t know why you have to cheat to make the people believe you coz the
whole world knew how the Iraqi people suffered from Saddam and you try to show
that they were happy with him!
In the same superficial manner you used to show that Iraq was a happy
place, one could use the pictures of children singing around Stalin celebrating
his birthday to show that people loved Stalin and they were happy. Now that was
one real documentary shot you took from Iraqis' life prior to the war!
And I liked your idea when you said" A nation that never attacked the
united states a nation that never threatened to attack the united states a
nation that have never murdered a single American citizen" well a (nation) like
Iraq started a war with Iran for 8 years with casualties of 1000000 dead people
on both sides and killed his own (nation) with toxic gas and then invade another
country and killing its people (Kuwait) and threatened to burn all the oil
fields if they tried to kick him out Don’t you think Mr. Moore that burning the
oil is a threat to the whole world not only to the united states and in your
opinion how long this (nation) will need to burn whole America. No Mr. Moore
Iraq wasn’t a (nation) it was a movie just like yours but it was written,
produced and directed by Saddam Hussein.
Still I have too many things to say but I think the article will be too
long to read so last to say to Mr. Moore being a writer doesn't mean that you
write lies and being a producer doesn't mean that you cheat people for their
money and being a director doesn't mean that you have to be silly and for the
best of all please find another job!!.
