Cyburbia is a friendly big tent, where we share our experiences and thoughts about urban planning practice, the built environment, planning adjacent topics, and anything else that comes to mind. No ads, no spam, and it's free. It's easy to join!
It doesn't seem to be the news, though ... it's mostly editorials, or at least highly editorialized news, with an anti-US/UK slant. If this is what they're watching in the MIddle East, we've got a long battle ahead, even after the "liberation" of Iraq.
I agree Dan, I think we have a long battle even after the "war" itself is over. The war itself is not going to be a cakewalk (why did anyone think it would be???) but after that is when it gets real damn hard.
you can bet the controls are in place. I only trusted one newspaper out of the middle east and that was a lebonese paper and probably Christian financed -not really sure since I can't think of the name now. But tv- news forget it.
Is the Al Jazeera version the REAL picture? I'm sorry but I'm just not buying that. I will agree that alot of what is going on is not being shown on CNN or MSNBC (as it shouldn't), but I'll bet my left testicle that we aren't over ther slaughtering innocent women, children, and civilians as Al Jazeera would like you to believe.
