Great job, I hope this is but one of many post on this blog about your experiences and opinions. You never had the benefit of forgetting the war or escaping it. You lived with the constant reality of it kicking in your door at any time and invading the private refuge of your inner sanctuary of following you home, but yet you risk life and limb to work for Reuters and risk even more writing such an article in such a public forum. I am very proud to know you and consider you my dear friend, your strength and bravery are only matched by your passion for seeing peace come to your homeland.
loved this blog!
Brett

So was everybody else. It’s one of the rottenest, most cowardly little ordeal movies ever made, living proof that any hack writer can hook up with a director of modest intellect, point four cameras at hours and hours of improv ensuing from a fairly decent cast, then let editors stitch the results into some albeit pointless semblance of narrative whose core failure, as with any embedded by product, never questions why US & UK aggressors continually destroy all and any peace or civilization that ever prevailed in Iraq by bombing and contaminating the place to Kingdom Come.

As not only millions of Iraqis know, that’s gotta hurt.

We never seem to work up a hate toward these, the actual, troublemakers. Everyone senses oil money has a lot to do with all this suffering; no one’s self-interest is on the side of exposing how, so that story is forever untold. Viet Nam was about propping up the value of the dollar, and we rescued FRANCE, which was bankrupted by that war. No one remembers that, especially the French interests!

There are different of groups of insurgents or militias, who they have appeared after the war fighting for different agenda and what helped these groups to grow is chaos, the absence of law, and more important is the lack of jobs which made many young people to become an easy prey in the hands of those who does not want the stability and peace.

No one should live in a nightmare, not in their own and especially not in that imposed on them, evil and cruel. I wish every child and every grownup can wake up from it an see an endless clear blue sky and fee the breeze of true freedom. Thank you for your wake up call May, Godspeed.
