A missed story
This is the impression I've been getting as well: The Western Front:
The story the media seem not to have caught on to is that the insurgency isn't popular in Iraq. American forces have alienated some Iraqis with clumsy raids and shameful treatment of prisoners. But this is not an anti-American war. Rather it is a war between civil society and those who would return Iraq to tyranny. American forces are targeted precisely because they offer Iraq the best hope for entering the modern world.
