Resistance "is a normal thing, and a right for everyone" Resistance "is a normal thing, and a right for everyone"

Yesterday, I suggested that if you really wanted to know what was going on in Iraq, the best way was to read Michaels Yon and Totten. I had forgotten Bill Ardolino. His Resistance "is a normal thing, and a right for everyone" is a great man-on-the-street view of Fallujah.
Perhaps more than any other element, contextual local perspective is missing from analysis about Iraq as a whole and Fallujah in particular. Western media, media consumers, and the political class offer strategic assessments about the conflict that confine the opinion and motivations of Iraqis to the general abstraction of religious sects and cherrypicked polls. It is a glaring oversight.
