I know why they fear - terrorist activity, trying to undermine the government security of the country. And interference from other countries like Iran.

How's it going?
I can't say from the IZ. I just know route Irish from Baghdad to Camp Victory was full of military convoys today. I supposed to go to the IZ in a few days. I will give you all a full report then.

It's about a 12 kilometer drive from where I'm at to our headquarters in the IZ. We don't use armed security anymore, so I will be driving a regular pick-up truck there in a few days. Pounds won't do any good if you happen upon a IED anyway. We are truly "manly men."

Yea, that's why you guys get the big bucks, right?



On a pucker factor chart of 0 to 10 how would you rate your little outing? And, back in the states are there any areas where there is a pucker factor on the same scale? Or, is the job you do have a higher pucker factor than the environment where you have to commute? Just wondering... I know some areas in the states and in Puerto Rico that I wouldn't want to do a commute through or stop my car in the case of a car problem... guess you know what I mean?
