Mystery blogger in the house! Happy to be here today.
Allright, enuff of the celebration. Let’s start things off with a bit of reality.
No one ever mentions the fact that we have literally built walls around each neighborhood and along every highway as the reason the violence is down here. The place looks like an Orwell novel gone wrong. The people cannot shoot each other through walls and the insurgents cannot move around to plant their bombs. A society cannot function walled off form each other. We pay every bill, manage every facet of governance. The government at every level is a joke. The ministries are controlled by one faction (Shia). They have almost no experience or education. A bunch of guys walk around in suits and look important while they do nothing.This is the neo-cons idea of "good news".
We’re going to be stuck in that country for years.
