I am not trying to sound apathetic here, but, same stuff, different day. I’ve done three tours in Diyala and that building has been getting pummeled
ever since 2003. I’m amazed it’s not rubble by now. Even as we draw down, the IEDs and attacks continue.
Once we are down to minimal advisors levels, I believe we will see a large scale attack, backed by Iran. That region has never seen peace since
My terps used to tell me proudly that Mesopotamia was the cradle of civilization. I would quip back by telling them, “Maybe so, but civilization
grew up and moved out.”
