Slate Diary By Gershom Gorenberg
Excellent, excellent piece of writing that could not leave me untouched. The prose is lightly treading on explosive emotional ground and the content just makes you feel a lot more than 50 embedded reporters and a full CNN shop can. While the article deals with Israeli reality, it is obviously easily applicable to all of those places were conflict reigns. Especially so in those areas where brutal conflict comes after relatively periods of pease and stability. Highly recommended.
