Road Blocks

As if things weren't bad enough in Baghdad...
I've written a lot about the President of Iran, Mahmoud Admadinejad's visit. He told the media Iraqis don't like Americans and Americans should leave. It was expected and he's right, many Iraqis don't like Americans.

Of course he didn't mention that Iraqis have very similar feelings towards Iran. Both nations are generally seen as imperialists here. Many Iraqis fear the rise of Persian rule and many feel that most Shiite and Kurdish officials are more loyal to Iran than Iraq.

But this is not what I want to write about. What I want to explain to you is the inconvenience of his trip.

To have Ahmadinejad safely cruise around Baghdad, the capital shut down.

This is shit you take for granted. You head for work at the same time each day and arrive at the same time each time.

You don't know how lucky you are.

Via Baghdad.
