Know of any good blogs or web sites covering the war in Iraq? Different perspectives are important to build an informed view of one's own, and to that end I offer the following starter list: DVIDS, the Digital Video Imagery Distribution System (http://www.dvidshub.net/index.php) is maintained by the U.S. Army. Lots of images and video from military sources in Iraq, along with background info, etc. Not a blog per se, but deep and active content. Baghdad Burning (http://riverbendblog.blogspot.com/), presented here in stark counterpoint to DVIDS, is a "Girl Blog from Iraq" that seems to become increasingly demoralized as the U.S. occupation continues. Finally (for the moment) we have the Iraq Resources page from the American Press Institute (http://www.americanpressinstitute.org/content/3949.cfm), a great source for lots of news topics. Know of some other good sites or blogs? Leave us a comment with details, please.
