The Real Iraq Story

I am amazed, as I communicate with various bloggers, just how few follow the REAL news of what is happening in Iraq. At least the news of what the Iraqi people are seeing and feeling. The refreshing - non-MSM - view of Iraq is available daily at Iraq The Model.

These folks say it like it is without the slant/garnish/trickery and outright subtrafuge of the MSM.

On the current arrest warrant issued by Iraq for one of the religious leaders who has fought the Democratization process each step of the way, ITM sez: "If you're not familiar with the name, al-Dhari and his organization are the only party that totally rejected the political process, never denounced Saddam's regime, explicitly praised al-Qaeda and is believed to be responsible for sponsoring a great deal of the activity of terror groups and insurgents loyal to the Ba'ath regime.

Al-Bolani (the official issuing the warrant) said the decision was made according to the 'national safety law' and anti-terrorism legislations and described the arrest warrant as a message to all other warlords and men who incite sectarian violence.

Actually the minister's words were an indirect threat to Muqtada al-Sadr, or more like a direct one because he said, and I'm paraphrasing, "there are two neighboring countries that are causing trouble in Iraq and anyone who cooperates with these countries will not be safe from prosecution"

Not what we've been hearing is it kiddies?

Check ITM daily and stay a bit more in tune with the opinions of the Iraqi citizens.
