Bloggers: Salam Pax

Before, and during the early part of the war in Iraq, there was a lot of buzz in the blogosphere about one particular journal. Where is Raed ?

Salam Pax posting from no where other than Downtown Baghdad, Iraq.

After the invasion began, there was a long silence from Salam. Rightfully so, he was keeping his head down. Then, a post on March 24th brought a fresh perspective on Mr. Pax.

Then, nothing. Truth be told, I never really read the blog that much. So many blogs, so little time. But, I would check the site every now and then to see if Salam found his way back to a keyboard. Today, through a third party, he did.

Let me tell you one thing first. War sucks big time. Don't let yourself ever be talked into having one waged in the name of your freedom. Somehow when the bombs start dropping or you hear the sound of machine guns at the end of your street you don't think about your "imminent liberation" anymore.

Must read.
