Occasional News and comments on the situation in Post-Saddam Iraq by an Iraqi-American living in Texas
Hamster House of Horrors
Sir Jeremy ate my hamster!
He's back!... and looking as pretty as ever.
Ecchh! That photo alone would be enough to turn you off dentistry for life!
You're just upset Zeyad, because Muqtada gets all the hawt Shi'a religious chicks...
Speaking of dentistry and health ... here's a scary graph for US-ians.
[PeteS}That photo alone would be enough to turn you off dentistry for life!No, no, that's an example of job security for dentists!
No, no, that's an example of job security for dentists!You're not suggesting that the Mockster has spent loads of money on his teeth, or plans to in future??!! Maybe he's still waiting for his boat to come in. Anyway, it's too late for dentists, and Zeyad quit the profession just in time, since apparently God has muscled in on the act (according to this highly believable story in jewishjournal.com). Poor ole' Mocktada, though, may have to become an evangelical Christian to avail of the offer. And I suspect even reading jewishjournal.com is a hangin' offence in his circles, let alone apostasising for the sake of his gnashers.
Hmmm. On second thoughts, maybe the conventional route would be cheaper: "Since October, Baker and visiting evangelists have asked church members to show their faith by giving money “sacrificially.’ Youths responded by selling their video games and basketball-card collections, a church bulletin reports, and adults sold second vehicles and wedding rings."Muqty might have to pawn his black turban and those souvenirs from Tehran.
Muqtata used to be a video-game addict, and he was nicknamed Muqtada Atari some years ago, if I remember well.
You're not suggesting that the Mockster has spent loads of money on his teeth, or plans to in future??!!In the past? Don't be silly. In the future? Well, that depends on how painful those teeth become. Literally or figuratively speaking. ;)
That's the sign of being angry...
And it didn't take long for Muqty to stir things up a bit:http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2011/01/07/world/middleeast/AP-ML-Iraq.html?_r=1&ref=global-homeI wonder if he's prepared to back those words up with action, if the final troop withdrawal isn't completed on schedule, or if it's more a political positioning he's up to. He might be calculating that he has some kind of political advantage in being able to credibly claim his party is the one party that never cooperated with occupiers.
How the US let al-Qaida get its hands on an Iraqi weapons factoryIn an exclusive extract from his new book, A History of the World since 9/11, Dominic Streatfeild explains how despite expert warnings, the US let al-Qaida buy an arsenal of deadly weapons – then tried to cover it uphttp://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jan/07/iraq-weapons-factory-al-qaida-us-failure
Zeyad,Iraq is not the only country where its heritage is in peril.An Italian you should be ashamed.
I think he hides chocolate bars under that turban. )))But he definitely wants to be PM of Iraq, like Gramps was.No, doubt about that.
This week's CNN "Inside the Middle East" program carries an interview with Mar Nasrullah Boutros Sfeir, the head (after the Pope) of the Maronite Church in Lebanon.He talks about the number of Christians leaving Iraq, about the falling Christian population of Lebanon (due to being out-bred by Muslims, according to him) and about the rise of Islamic fundamentalism (due to unfairness in society). He calls for tolerance among all religions in Lebanon.
Iraq cleric's clout does not bode well for US presence(Reuters) - The political power of anti-U.S. Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr increases the pressure on Iraq's new government to reject any effort to extend a U.S. military presence after the last U.S. soldier leaves this year.Sadr, a firebrand still capable of rousing millions of Shi'ite supporters, told a rapturous audience on Saturday to oppose the United States, using his first speech since returning from self-imposed exile in Iran to reaffirm his anti-U.S. credentials. http://in.reuters.com/article/idINIndia-54021620110108?rpc=401&feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews&rpc=401
Video: Trashed in Iraq: 'Look what they've done to us!' The US is pumping billions of dollars into regenerating Iraq. But with thousands there still living below the poverty line, many have yet to see any improvement in living standards. As RT's Sebastian Myer reports, some are forced to live in dumping grounds, scavenging through waste just to earn a few dollars.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf5oRfXE07I

Mockster: “We are still resisters, and we are still resisting the occupier militarily and culturally and by all means of resistance. Repeat after me: No, no, to the occupier. Let’s have all the world hear that the Iraqi people reject the occupier.”http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/world/2011/0110/1224287155611.html
Mockster: “If any conflict happened between brothers, let us forget this page and turn it over forever and let us live united. We have had enough fighting.” Mr Sadr called for national unity, asking Iraqis to move beyond the slayings, torture and sectarian cleansing of Sunnis by members of his militia during 2006-2007. Uh, yeah, forget all that driller-killering ... we didn't mean it!
So did he graduate from Qom Qommunity Qollege... or drop out?
I thinq he did a quick qualification in Blaq and Deqqering.
Probably a natural talent, allowing him to test out.
