Iraqi Bloggers

The country of Iraq has gone through a lot of trials of late especially their citizens. I'm sure most of them wanted a peaceful time with their own family members or friends or having the time to read what's going on around the world online.

There are a few Iraqis who were able to access internet and took the opportunity to blog as well. When you have the time, you could view their blogs and give them some moral support.

Nabil is 19. He left Baghdad and arrived in Jordan last month.
