Kate is right: if our military is forced to take down American flags in Iraq during this horrible month of fighting, then we must fly them on our blogs in their honor. It's the least we can do...


Thanks, Jim.

Birdie is bringing one home which flew over the Capitol in Austin, then flew over his post in Baghdad for about 15 minutes...before he was required to take it back down.

Don't want to present ourselves as occupiers, you know. It would be...well, uncivilized.

I've put up one myself, as a reminder to all of what America stands for. On behalf of all Australians, thank you, America.

Thanks for showing your support. Now if we can only find the idiot who issued the order in the first place and make him/her apologize.

You guys are insiders, can you tell me why the US has shut down an anti-American newspaper in Baghdad if we're supposed to be there to build a democracy?

Because the newspaper in question had gone beyond voicing a dissenting opinion and was actively involved in orchestrating violence - the violence we are now seeing. For this it had its license suspended for two months.

Pixy, could you give me a source on that? Since as far as I have found out, even Bremer did not accuse them of "orchestrating violence", a serious and organized activity, just of using hate speech and spreading rumors -- two things that don't shut down newspapers in a democracy.

Also, isn't this so counter-productive? It has made Iraqis angry, less trusting of the US, already caused a nasty protest demonstration, and will make the newspaper more popular when (if) it starts publishing again.

This is the sort of cowardly appeasement that results in my serious doubts about Bush's ability to win this war.
