I have recently created a new community that I'm (quite obviously) doing some advertising for: aliveinbagdad. The purpose of this community is simple: it exists to discuss a weekly news program from the streets of Baghdad, Iraq. I plan on uploading videos every few days from the weekly news feed (aliveinbaghdad) to the community from YouTube so that people can watch these videos, discuss them, and figure out how American and British policies in the region have effected the everyday lives of people on the street.
It is my hope that I can get people who are also native to the Middle East to join this community as well, and I've recently started talking to a student from Iran about having her in on it.
If you are interested, then I encourage you to join. And feedback, of course, is always welcome.
