Blogging is an increasingly popular phenomenon on the internet. They may have been little more than diaries from the start but these days a lot of blogs have proven to be an invaluable source of information. Where mainstream media delivers streamlined and biased reports that gives you little more than the official picture of an event such as the campaign in Falluja, bloggers are engaged in fierce discussions and information exchange that throws light on current events from many perspectives. Below you'll find a few links to blogs that are very active in reporting on the war in Iraq.
Raed Jarrar's blog "Raed in the Middle" is a good starting point. Raed reports daily on the current situation in Iraq and the blog also includes fierce discussions between pro- and anti-war debaters in the comments sections.
"Moon of Alabama" is an example of an pro-democrat anti-war blog
"Diary of an Anti-Chomskyite" is rather pro-Israel, pro-republican
Riverbend is one of few bloggers reporting from Baghdad
