Questions and Answers

Question: What about the Kuwaiti POWs, and the newly captured US POWs? Where are they?

Completely Unrelated answer: Syria is not next.

Completely Unrelated note: I did not mean to "bash" the US when i mentioned looting in the previous post. I was simply giving an example.

Missed Me?

I can't believe you guys thought you would get rid of me so easily. Yes I am alive and well I has just been real busy. You see, since the war is Iraq is basically over (in the sense that massive bombings are over), and that there is no danger in Kuwait, business is booming again. Also, this weekend was great. Most my friends have returned to Kuwait again. So ever since Tuesday I have been spending every free moment I have with friends. Social life in Kuwait is quite different from elsewhere. Hanging out with friends usually means gathering at one friends house where we either watch a movie, play games (cards, boards, or video), or we go out for coffee or dinner.

I think the looting going on in Iraq is something that was expected. Maybe not to this large extent, but looting is a natural response. Hell, a blackout occurs in an American city for a few hours and you get chaos, imagine a country where no government exists. Is it possible for all these millions of Iraqis hated Saddam to such a great extent? Is it possible that Saddam had a government so fearful that these millions of people were never able to even whisper about an uprising?

End of OPEC?

This article was very intresting, for everyone says how the US is doing this for the oil.

But then what will they do with the oil after they get it? Beside just cheaper oil. Seems the US has some large plans in controling Iraqi oil and land.

Iraq is an amazing country, they have the most amazing fertile land thanks to those two rivers for amazing growing crops that will rival US farmers. Then you have also the rich history, and landscape for tourists.

There is going to be a lot of wealth coming out of Iraq so hopefully that will help the country not depend on oil as a terms of wealth and that will tickle over to the other countries in the area.

For they really depend on the power of oil, and become unable to be self sufficient and use their other resources like their people.

Whose Next?

The fear of most of the nations, is the changes that will occur from "Operation Iraqi Freedom", is whose freedom is next? They are other "regimes" in the area that can be considered a threat. There is going to be a missing point in the axis of evil, and Syria is real close to Iraq.

Statue for Sale?

Well been watching the media of Saddam's statues and pictures being torn down and ripped apart. I was recalling when the USSR fell, and they did that with Lenin statues.

So was thinking those Lenin statues were on sale and how some communities have them displayed.

So when do I get to bid for one on eBay?

Palestine hotel got hit. Everyone is pointing fingers at everyone else. Maybe, it was a bad idea to send the media in. Seems to me that they are causing more problems and we have lost some of the greaters correspondents of our time in this conflict.

Also a thought, if Saddam's body is found, how would they know if it is him or a double? Is there a birthmark on him?

Strike 2!

Al Jazeera's office in Baghdad got hit by a US missile, injuring a camera man and leaving a correspondent missing. It was an accident.
Also, an Al Jazeera car was shot at by US troops outside Baghdad.

Now let me get this straight: Yesterday British officers said they found Chemical Ali's body in his residence in Basra.....dead. Now, British officers are saying he might still be alive. Huh? Washington Post

Now they say that they might have hit Saddam and his 2 sons in a residential complex. "Informers" had told them that some senior Iraqi officials were there. Erm.... didn't the informers tell them 2 days ago that Saddam has fled Baghdad and was hiding out in a different area?

Special Olympics

The Special Olympics are being held in Ireland. Actual conversation with a friend:

Me: Guess where the Kuwaiti team are to be hosted?
Owen: Where?
Me: Roscommon. (Absolute Hicksville.)
Me: Certainly won't be seeing the best of Ireland there.
Owen: I heard the Iraqi athletes were recalled because of the war.
Me: Probably to take part in the war effort.
Owen: Hahaha, brings new meaning to the term Special Forces.
Me: I have this image now of men holding Klashnikov rifles sown onto their sleeves.
Me: COMEDY GOLD. God, we're going to hell.

I don't know why but here is something I remembered today. During the Kuwait invasion, Saddam promised the Palestenians residing in Kuwait, a new Palestine. He promised Kuwait to them. Prior to the Kuwaiti invasion, Palestenians were a majority in Kuwait and had respectable posts in government offices and elsewhere. When Saddam promised them the land the majority of Palestenians stood with Iraq against Kuwait. Did the Palestenians actually believe Saddam? Would Saddam actually done it? If so, would this have resolved the Israeli - Palestenian conflict? I know there is no point to bring up the past, but it annoys the hell out of me to see the Arab world view Kuwait as traitors! Why have issues such as this be forgotten? Why do they forget that Kuwait is sending humanitarian help to several Arab countries, and now to Iraq as well. Why have they forgotten that Kuwait sends billions of dolllars to some countries to help them restore? Why have they forgotten the amount of Kuwaiti tourists in their countries, spending money there?
