Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

A Different View

The reportage from the “embedded” reporters on the Iraq war is certainly compelling, if somewhat blinkered. There is — both metaphorically and physically — not much visibility from the inside of a Bradley APC.

For another perspective, check out the coverage from ArabNews.com, Saudi Arabia’s “first English Daily”. One of their reporters in particular, Essam Al-Ghalib has been in Basra and has a riveting series of dispatches from Southern Iraq: I, II, III.
