Andrew Sullivan praises John F. Burns' work in the NYT. He calls Burns the "New Orwell", which seems a bit over-the-top to me, but I agree that his article today is beautifully written, fair, and insightful. It doesn't sugar the problems in Iraq, but portrays them in a realistic and accurate manner. It also doesn't blanket describe the opinions of the Iraqi population.William Sjorstrom digs up David Aaronvitch's column in today's Guardian. As Sjorstrom puts it:
Aaronovitch is not the Guardian's token conservative. He is the Guardian's token "not loony."Read it. It shows you don't have to be a Bush lover (nothing wrong with that!) to have a sense of reality.
