I live in Iraq, Baghdad, west part of the city, Al-Karkh. Well, I don't think there is anyone who haven't heard of Iraq. Iraq is considered the north-east gate of The Arabian Nation. It once had one of the oldest civilizations in the whole world, and the word "Law" was first presented to the humanity by Hamu-Rabi one of the Babylonian kings. Iraq is an Arabic speaking country. And Baghdad was once the capital of the great Islamic Arabian Nation, at the times of the Abbasis. Just to the south of Baghdad you can find the Hanging Gardens, although there isn't much to see right now. There are two rivers that cut through Iraq from the north to the south, The Euphrates, and The Tigris. To the East there is Iraq, to south there is Kuwait, to the North there is Turkey to the west there is Jordan to the north-west there is Syria and to the south-west there is KSA.

Ahh, what can I say, I can go for pages and pages about the history of my country but it won't deny the fact that we are now a conquered country going through our times ever. But hopfully it won't last long, and in God's will, Baghdad will once again be called "Home of Peace: The Capital of The World".

But I'm soon leaving Baghdad and Iraq...

Do you know how many people want to live in US just because of all of the opportunities right now? We are one of the most powerful countries. How could you say that it sucks?

Ya there are americans overseas fighting for "freedom"(Im From LA) but our country is in its worst finacial slump ever. Worse than the great depression. Our country got F***ed by our so-called president. after all the work Clinton did to get America out of debt Bush through us back in and dug it deeper. So ya our country really does suck. But LA rules. Cali should be its own state. Hoorah!!!! (and I know I ton of people that have died overseas for OIL not freedom as many may think. Everything in the world has the fine print that knowone looks at. The bottom line is that politics, mainly American politics, is curropt everything is for the goverment officals benifit. Cheney( dont know how to spell the name) may be getting sued for abusing his political position. Bush is just impossible to be called a president. we all have the right to our opinions but the goverment denys us the right to know the truth. The game speaks the truth "Nothing is true, Everything is permitted" but they just dont tell you that. Hoorah!!

Clinton dug the hole but he just didn't jump into it. Bush jumped in willingly not knowing what was in store if my dad was awake i would so go all conservative on your asses cuz he knows that ****.

are there any conservatives on this entire forum????


P.S. i do agree with the oil stuff if they didnt have something we want we wouldnt be there.

I wasn't saying the soldiers suck. I never said that. They're just following orders, doing what they should be doing, and I couldn't be more happy about that. It's why we're over there is what I'm pissed off about.

This country sucks because of it's leadership, not because of the people. Personally, I find it frustrating when I say this country sucks, and someone thinks I'm talking about soldiers.

Also, they're not fighting for our freedom. We've already got freedom, we don't need to kill 300,000 innocent people to sustain our freedom.

Thanks for the clarification and sorry for misunderstanding you. Although, in a way, we're kind of fighting for freedom because we were threatened six years ago coming September. In conclusion, let's get this topic back on track, eh?

Here's a picture of the skyline in Downtown Tampa...
