A few other blog articles that I found interesting during these interesting times: Spinsanty has a helpful primer on Iraq and our reasons for going to war. It is, I’m sure, important to realize that almost every reason that the administration gave for this war has been misdirection or an outright lie. Via name of blog. The shocking, awesome Coalition of the Willing roll call is highlighted at Pandagon. Notes on the Atrocitieswrites a thoughtful piece on American nationalism that points out correctly that the odd, idiosyncratic thought of 40 years ago is as quaint to us now as our thoughts will be to our country in the future. Soundbitten gives us a bit of historical perspective. And finally, TalkLeft points out the round up of Iraqi nationals on American soil. Via Atrios.
