Good News!... Salam Pax is back with loads of blog with a little help from Diana Moon (brought to you in association with Thuraya phones :).
We hope that he gets well from his massive internet withdrawal symptoms. He is OK otherwise.
Just a glimpse....
"Let me tell you one thing first. War sucks big time. Don�t let yourself ever be talked into having one waged in the name of your freedom. Somehow when the bombs start dropping or you hear the sound of machine guns at the end of your street you don�t think about your �imminent liberation� anymore."
But he has high hopes for a new Iraq:
"so, dear Mr. Taxi driver would you like to have your saddam back? Aren�t we just really glad that we can now at least have hope for a new Iraq? Or are we Iraqis just a bunch of impatient fools who do nothing better than grumble and whine? Patience, you have waited for 35 years for days like these so get to working instead of whining."
Salam, the world missed you.
"If the price really is affordable I might be able to update the blog every week or two". . let us hope that it is affordable for Salam.
