Denning, Dorothy E.
MetadataShow full item record
In recent years, the Internet has come to play a part in every major conflict, for example, Kosovo in 1999, the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, particularly since the second Intifada in 2000, and now Iraq. While the net’s role in the Iraq conflict may seem insignificant compared to events on the ground, it cannot be ignored. At the very least, it has affected support for the war and for al-Qa’ida’s insurgency, both within Iraq and globally.
On blogs and Web sites, by e-mail and video, the Iraq war is fought on the Internet Associated Press, Baghdad, March 16, 2008.
