The unreported resistance

To read the Iraqi Blogs at the moment you'd think there was some kind of surge in the Iraqi resistance going on. Reports of heavy bombing, more explosions than anyone remembers for months, and rumours that the resistance are deploying an anti-aircraft gun. Meanwhile nothing is reported.

Some of you doubtless think this is a conspiracy theory and that if there was anything to this the news would pick it up. Sadly tis not the case. In the UK dozens of bombings and shootings in Ireland went unreported throughout the troubles, it just wasn't news anymore. When I holidayed in Ireland I was amazed at how routine reports of murders and shootings had become on the local news - and how none of them ever made it to the broadcasts of the mainland BBC.
