THE FIRST NEWSPAPER IN FREE IRAQ IS RED

This has really cheered me up for all kinds of reasons. The first newspaper to hit the streets of Baghdad since the fall of Saddam is the paper of the Communist Party see news story. Many had suspected that there was little left of the once very powerful CP after the repression they suffered at the hands of the Ba’athist regime. Thanks to the internet you too can read the front page article which was the first printed criticism of Saddam seen inside Iraq for three decades – read the front page of Tareeq Al-Sha’ab here – well worth digesting.
