Back in Iraq

The United States Government killed Iraqi citizens today.

As those who read my Dialogs and Documents piece know, I've been interested in the fact that a an email thread or chat transcript can be edited and presented as a document. This thread is a really good example. It contains a lot of viewpoints, and has well-articulated messages that aren't hard to understand. In this and other cases, I find that reading an on-topic thread dealing with given subject can be more informative than reading an introductory text.

Certainly, the multi-voicedness of differing viewpoints and the contrast between ideas are well-stressed in such exchanges.

We started bombing Iraq again today.
