Juba, the Baghdad Sniper: man or myth?
Does Juba, the Baghdad Sniper, really exist, or is he just a figment of the American soldiers' imagination, as they cower in Iraq, trying to survive?

The Americans are certainly trying to play down the Juba story, by claiming that he is nothing more than an internet myth. However, many of the soldiers are not convinced and are keeping their heads down. Certainly there are quite a few videos on the web that purport to show the man in action.

He was The Exile's Man of the Year in 2005, and by the end of 2006 he had his own blog and website. However, since then stories of Juba have pretty much dried up.

So, was he killed? Is he busy training other Iraqis to defend their country against the American aggressors - or did he never exist in the first place?

I have no answer to those questions, but what I do know is that fully 15% of the visitors to this blog arrive here as a result of a search for Juba.

Man or myth, alive or dead, Juba still holds his place in the popular imagination.
