Iraq Blog Count

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on February 23, 2012

Iraq Blog Count is a collection of links to stories about the middle east. Many are in Arabic, and of little value to PG. Some are recycled quotes from other sources. Here are a few of these stories. The pictures are Union soldiers, from the War Between the States, borrowed from The Library of Congress

Free Iraq “…. In short , Iran has achieved a conventional deterrent to Israel. Therefor, statements by Iranian officials that Iran has no nuclear weapons program are in my view probably correct. Presently, Iran does not need nukes to deter Israel. It can do so with its GPS-guided medium range missiles. The Israelis are no doubt gnashing their teeth over this, because they now find themselves threatened by their own WMD stockpiles, and by their own nuclear reactors, especially Dimona, all of which have become targets.
A few direct hits by Iran could cause a toxic plume, killing thousands of Israelis. A worst case might signal the end of the Jewish state.
It is important to realize that Iran would never launch a pre-emptive strike on Israel because the Iranians know that the US/Israeli response would be devastating. However, if Iran comes under attack first, all bets are off. Iran will defend itself. A counter attack on Israel cannot be ruled out because Iranian leaders understand clearly (even if the American people do not) that the crisis has been manufactured, on Israel’s behalf.”

It was just a phase It was just a phase after all, though it had its benefits by letting me apply my frivolous and yet fervent thoughts into such scrambled sentences. I am figuring out that life is too short to spend on trivial matters, thus I Sincerely condemn the time that I spent here.
I am here to enunciate that this blog will be frozen(certainly deleted) and I am going to move on with my other projects, it was my pleasure to know people through this medium. The phase has ended and life continues even after our death, so I guess people will still be out there blogging about their daily flatulence and fecal whereabouts. (Comment) we all sincerely condemn the time we spend on the internet, yet its the perfect crime of spewing word vomit everywhere, without having to clean it up.

Logical Errors and Propaganda in Republican Debate on the Middle East Juan Cole is not listed on Iraq Blog Count. He does have “informed comment” about the Middle East daily. Today, he comments on the Repub debate, held last night. Newtie was calling fashion icon Ahmadinejad the “Dictator” of Iran, when he is a flunky to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

Healing Iraq From yesterday, a Palestinian in Gaza holds up a sign that reads: “If the road to liberate al-Quds (Jerusalem) has to pass through the bloodshed of our brothers in Syria, then we have no need to liberate al-Quds.”

Bassam Sebti This time, the so-called “infidels” won the hearts and minds of many Iraqis who are relentlessly sharing a YouTube video of the Australian version of Britain’s Got Talent, The X Factor, in which Iraqi war survivor Emanuel Kelly performs. .
Emanuel, who doesn’t know his actual age because he was raised in an orphanage for disabled Iraqi children, was rescued and adopted by Children First Foundation director Moira Kelly along with his brother Ahmed after they both suffered from limb deficiencies as a result of chemical warfare in Iraq.
After I watched the clip in which Emanuel performs in the show’s auditions, all I was able to think of is how happy I am for him. He’s lucky he’s no longer in Iraq where orphans and the disabled are in most cases not treated as equal or in some cases as human beings. Our Iraqi society, or the Arab society as a whole to be specific, has no mercy on disabled people. It’s harsh, non-accepting and degrading. Most people like Emanuel would end up being beggars on the streets.

Skies As far as I know, no driving license has been issued since 2003 in Iraq. Today I was in a bus reading about “Nairn Transport Co.” when a passenger in our bus asked the bus driver to stop just at the start of a bridge in a highway. The bus driver hit the break with his feet as if pressing on a cockroach and we stop just few centimeters from a taxi driver who was out of his car for unclear reason at the mouth of the bridge. “You was about to hit me idiot” the taxi driver yelled. “Learn to choose your words,” murmured our bus driver with anger. The taxi driver went inside his taxi and yelled: “ZMAL (=jackass)” and hit the benzene pedal with his feet as if killing a roach.
