Some readers have asked how they can watch Al-Jazeera. You can watch it online at www.ish.com for about 10 cents/minute. The web site is in German, but the registration screens do have English versions. The Al-Jazeera video stream is in the original Arabic.

Anti-American forces have had three arguments since the war started: The Americans are losing! Innumerable “Quagmire” proponents now have egg on their face. Even more ashamed should be the likes of former Soviet generals, BBC “military analysts” and countless others who predicted that Baghdad would take weeks or months to fall. Yes, the Americans...

Al-Jazeera is showing the statue-toppling footage over and over. They’re also showing footage of torture chambers in Basra. Seeing these images, the Arab street must be aghast at the brazen dishonesty of the propaganda they’ve been getting until now.

Just yesterday, US marines were being shot at in Baghdad and the 3rd Infantry was still facing hopeless suicide attacks. Now Baghdad is eerily quiet and the resistance is melting away. How did this happen in just 24 hours? Because Baghdadis have finally seen American tanks in their city. A week ago, I predicted...

Even the Arabs now understand the colossal military success the US has achieved. From an Arab News editorial: Now it’s obvious that the Iraqis aren’t going to put up a credible fight, and it’s equally clear that as a result the world has changed into pretty much what the Americans wanted it to be....

PR professionals have advice for the Iraqi information minister. (No, I’m not going to put “information” in quotes. And I’m not going to call him the “disinformation” minister either.

The continuing slaughter, on the west bank of the Tigris in Baghdad, of thousands of “Special” Republican Guard, Fedayeen and other scum seems to be attriting defenses in the eastern part of the city. Al Jazeera reports: A few cars sped along the deserted main arteries of the eastern Al-Rusafa bank, where traffic had...
