The nadir of Western media coverage of the wars in Iraq and Syria has been the reporting of the siege of East Aleppo, which began in earnest in July and ended in December, when Syrian government forces took control of the last rebel-held areas and more than 100,000 civilians were evacuated.

If the coalition against the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), led by the United States, urges the Iraqi government to address the political war in Baghdad, it has a better chance of seeing a stronger government in Baghdad that is also able to consolidate and extend the military gains in Fallujah.

In 1996 I visited Penjwin, an impoverished village in Iraqi Kurdistan close to the Iranian border, where people were trying to make a little money through what must be one of the most dangerous occupations in the world.

In hindsight, we were fighting the data war in Baghdad with fairly primitive tools. It was before the explosion of social media and the flowering of open-source data.

Iraq has just had one of its least violent periods since the US invasion in 2003.

In the past, IS would respond to military setbacks ...

It goes back to 2003 and 2004 in Baghdad, particularly the 2006-07 sectarian war in Baghdad, which ended with the Sunni really being confined to a limited number of enclaves.

The military balance of power in Syria and Iraq is changing.

The Islamic State is becoming even more repressive and violent as it comes under increased military pressure from its many enemies.

When I was covering the war in Baghdad several years ago, almost everyday an army recruitment center was car bombed, and I would see the torn bodies of young recruits in the aftermath. Even from the very beginning of the insurgency, the army was the main target. I saw how inhumanely Shiite soldiers treated Sunni ...
With Kelly covering the war in Baghdad, your father's death and with the birth of your daughter, did you ever think, “It's time to go home”? At no point in those early years did I feel like we should leave. But then my dad dies, Loretta is born, Kelly gets the job in Baghdad and I move to Istanbul. At that point, my ...
The four wars fought in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria over the past 12 years have all involved overt or covert foreign intervention in deeply divided countries.
