Where is Raed ?

"No one inside Iraq is for war (note I said war not a change of regime), no human being in his right mind will ask you to give him the beating of his life, unless you are a member of fight club that is, and if you do hear Iraqi (in Iraq, not expat) saying 'come on bomb us' it is the exasperation and 10 years of sanctions and hardship talking. There is no person inside Iraq (and this is a bold, blinking and underlined inside) who will be jumping up and down asking for the bombs to drop. We are not suicidal you know, not all of us in any case."

The voice of an ordinary Iraqi, and a blogger like many of us, probably only hours before tons of cruise missiles rain down on his home town.

Music to watch the war to #1 : River Euphrates by the Pixies. Suggestions?
