A great loss

The recent murder of Iraqi blogger Ali Shafeya Al-Moussawi, a contributor to the fascinating video blog Alive in Baghdad, reminds us of the real dangers in the war-torn country (notwithstanding deluded Murdoch commentators telling us otherwise.)

Like many bloggers around the world, Ali’s death is a loss to everybody in the blogging community. As the mainstream media buy the “surge has worked” line, Iraqis are continuing to die every day.

We now more than ever need independent voices and perspectives on the conflict.
