|Seems that most Iraqis have no means of expressing themselves whatsoever. At least not yet. I am sure the liklihood is now better because of the invasion BUT, the few Iraqis interviewed by non-american journos have declared that they are still subject to night time raids and searches JUST LIKE WHEN SADDAM WAS AROUND.
I beg to differ. Iraqis have the means and have been expressing themselves on the Internet and in blogs for some time now, since before the war (and even before that!.) Most of their thoughts are in Arabic but a few of them speak fluent English and write in both. Others get people who can speak English to translate their blogs for them. Here are a few sites for you to search:http://dear_raed.blogspot.com/http://ishtartalking.blogspot.com/http://geeinbaghdad.blogspot.com/http://www.realwomenonline.com/artic...30627054459786
There are more but the links are at my home computer and I am at work now. Granted this isn't the majority of the people in Iraq but it gives you an interesting look into their daily lives and thoughts. Most of these are people with access to a computer and Internet so they are more affluent than those who I would like to hear from the most. The poor in those far off villages, the Kurds, the children, those wounded. Anyway, just some interesting daily reading for you if you are interested.
