Something funny is going on. There hasn't been any power for 21 hours and water supply is very very weak. I heard something like air strikes last night and choppers where flying very low in our neighbourhood all night. Some people are saying that the whole city is on blackout because the mugahedeen attacked the main power station in Dorah south of Baghdad with mortars and short range missiles. There has been absolutely NO explanation about any of this either on tv or radio. We don't want to live like sheep anymore, we have to know what the hell is happening. People are nervous especially when we saw Americans and IP all over the neighbourhood setting checkpoints and blocking more roads. It looks like another war going on. I just asked some IP before coming here if they had any idea what was up, and they answered in the negative. This just isn't right.
