Last year, Austrian or German journalist Brono Schirra spent some time in Iraq for the weekly "Die Zeit" and barely escaped from Uduai Hussein's people.
Now he went back to northern Iraq to report from a war which started ten years ago. It is about Kurds versus Ansar-e Islam (if not: al-Qaida), Kurds versus Iraqis, WMD and the Kurds' waiting for American help.
I suggest everyone who can read German to give this link a trial before the new issue of Die Zeit is released tomorrow:
Schirra's reports are always haunting.
