    What war? 

    Did you read anything this weekend about the 2nd anniversary of the beginning of the war in Iraq? I didn't, at least not anything that seemed enlightening enough to post. There were some protests. But I've been reading blogs since the weekend and find only brief allusions, mostly complaining about the lack of coverage. One blogger suggested the Terri Schiavo case was a convenient way for the networks and newspapers to avoid covering the protests. The Defense Department's DefenseLink has a Special report on Two Years in Iraq, and claims this year will be 'pivotal'. I'm still looking and will post anything important I find.

    Perhaps you should focus on blogs that bring news from Iraq that the MSM doesnt cover. I sugest Chrenkoff for starters.

    Of course, there may be some good news there, so Im sure it wont be covered here either.
    As to the basic theme: What War? Perhaps a re-look at the definition is in order.

    Encyclopedia Definition from Encarta.


    War, in international law, armed conflict between two or more governments or states. When such conflicts assume global proportions, they are known as world wars. War between different parts or factions of the same nation is called civil war.
