Iraqi blog burst

A storm has been brewing in the Iraqi blogosphere for a while. Most of it was offline in email discussions and many ugly remarks and angry accusations were made. Iraqi Konfused Kollege Kid has posted a roundup. To sum it up, 27 Iraqi bloggers reacted to Iraq the Model's reaction to the John Hopkins study published in the Lancet.

Baghdad Treasure
also interviews several Iraqi bloggers and asks them whether they think this war was worth the price.

Salam Adil has another roundup of recent Iraqi blog posts, for Global Voices Online.

I should add that the above posts are unprecedented events on many levels in the fragile Iraqi blogosphere.
