A World of Suck

MOSUL, Iraq — The two dozen Iraqi soldiers marched in formation into downtown Mosul, streets emptying in their path. The men trained their rifles on potential bomb threats: a donkey-drawn vegetable cart, a blue Opel sedan, a man with a bulge beneath his tattered gray coat.

When one of the threats you have to worry about is whether or not you are going to have your nuts blown off by a donkey bomb, you are in a world of suck.

God bless these guys and the work they are doing. It is guys like them that will bring Iraq out of a world of suck.

    Sounds like the Iraqis are watching South Park. I remember one eposide where Uncle Jimbo rigged a donkey to blow up during halftime of the kids football game
