Here is a very revealing article by Molly Bingham on her experience in Iraq. She explains why it is that we are so rarely reminded why there is a resistance. I don’t know what is more chilling: the substance of her piece (essentially she demonstrates that the US military hands down the death penalty for reporting the other side) or that she feels the need to be so cautious in explaining her perspective to American readers, on grounds that her points violate the canons of nationalism.
