'Can't Blair see that this country is about to explode? Can't Bush?'

Robert Fisk's article in The Independent asks the above question. He says watching the Western media's coverage of Iraq is like "tuning in to Planet Mars" it bears so little resemblance to what is actually happening.
"Living in Iraq these past few weeks is a weird as well as dangerous experience. I drive down to Najaf. Highway 8 is one of the worst in Iraq. Westerners are murdered there. It is littered with burnt-out police vehicles and American trucks. Every police post for 70 miles has been abandoned. Yet a few hours later, I am sitting in my room in Baghdad watching Tony Blair, grinning in the House of Commons as if he is the hero of a school debating competition. . . "
