I wanted to update the old blog today, but I don't have much to say.
Some days I really wish I were still in IQ and I can't wait to go back. I've been feeling like that a lot lately, too.
And when I watch or read the news (and, let's face it, it's mostly read since TV news is too busy pandering to the lowest common denominator..) I can't help but think that the time to work in IQ is getting short, especially in the north. I wonder if the US pullout will see the Turks invade the north to stamp out the PKK. And what about Iran?
I pray that I'm wrong and the door that was opened following the Gulf War (and especially after the US invasion) will stay open forever, but it seems unlikely.
