Forgotten Iraq, The War in Maysan Province
From Tomdispatch today, Michael Schwartz on "Forgotten Iraq, The War in Maysan Province" LINK
Given the restricted nature of Western reporting in journalist-unfriendly Iraq (which I review in my introduction to Schwartz's piece), it's not surprisingly that whole areas of Iraq remain beyond our view much, if not all, of the time. Michael Schwartz picks one forgotten province where war and resistance, first to Saddam Hussein and then to foreign occupation, have been a constant, and reporting, in our press at least, an irregular, small miracle. In this piece of investigative analysis from afar, he offers a suggestion about the shape of what we don't normally see of Iraq. This is the sort of thing not often written about in our world.
