    Mary, I too was interested when I was informed about this website. But after reading a few of the reports & comments I do not find anything but reports that are the same as on US evening newscasts, namely anything the Coalition Forces are doing is bad and that Iraq was better off under a dictatorship. I do not expect that giving people the opportunity for a free democratic society can be comprehended by people who have never had that opportunity in their lifetime or indeed in the complete history of their country.
