War Blog

The two things I remember most about Gulf War I are Wolf Blitzer on CNN and "smart bombs." It's probably too early to tell what will stick with me the longest from this war, but I'm guessing that three things will be near the top: embedded reporters, digital cameras, and war blogs.

Embedded reporters have provided a frontline view of the invasion, for better or worse. Digital cameras have captured more images of Iraq than any battlefield in history. And war blogs have recorded the thoughts of soldiers and civilians alike.

I just stumbled across another great blog, called Birding Babylon. A Civil Affairs soldier spent a year in Iraq, but kept up with his hobby.
