This blog has thwarted itself. I used to be able to type "iraq blog" into search engines and bingo! A new blog would show up. Only now all I keep getting are the usuals and old Iraq Blog Count ramblings.
So in the absence of blogs, again, and scratching around for something mildly related, slightly different, and unashamedly leaning toward alternative solutions to war, I thought I'd post a link to an amazon history book. I guess it's kind of a semi rare one in that even though it's still reprinted from time to time not that many people have probably heard about the events within (although some may recognise a similar story). Nobody seems to've published it on the web so short of transcribing the whole thing and having Dick Scott after me with a copywrite batton, just click on the link and good luck.
I'd write a review or intro but someone else already has. It's not about Iraq, but it is about war, pacifism, vision and natural resources.
