Iraq: A War Without End

Issue section: 

'Riverbend', the Baghdad blogger, describes the worsening conditions in Iraq as the occupation continues.

Friday 9 September 2005

It has been a long blog vacation I've taken. There have been several reasons behind it, but the main one has been that I simply have not felt like blogging.

Technically, it's the summer's end... But realistically, we have at least another month of stifling heat ahead of us. It's almost mid-September and the weather is still hot and dry in Baghdad. There are a few precious hours in the very early morning when the sun seems almost kind. If you wake early enough, you can catch a solid hour of light breezes and a certain summer coolness.

Resistance: While Baghdad Burns

Baghdad Burning is a weblog written by a 25 year old Iraqi woman living in Baghdad, who uses the pseudonym Riverbend. For over a year she has described her experiences of the occupation.

Here we re-publish edited extracts from her recent posts. Her full blog can be found at http://riverbendblog.blogspot.com.
