Abstract:

Nir Rosen is one of the few Western reporters able to report the truth from Iraq. A freelancer who speaks Iraqi-accented Arabic, he has reported from some of the country's most dangerous locales. He has listened to the insurgents, and he knows that they will never rest until the Americans are gone. Since the fall of Saddam, Rosen has been breaking bread with dangerous men and listening to ordinary Iraqis. He has heard the double messages--the careful English messages for Western ears and the unvarnished hostility in Arabic--and he has interviewed politicians and imams and seen how the insurgents and gang leaders create militias, private courts, prisons, security services, and more. The depth of discord is difficult to fathom; the anti-Americanism is much more recent, but not much less intense. The divisions within this cobbled-together country, much like those within Yugoslavia, are simply too intense to contain.--From publisher description.
