He Got In, Will He Get Out? Ahmadinejad Visits Iraq


Don't mind the title, put it down to my sense of humour but it was the first thing that sprang to mind when I read this part of the report.

Mr Ahmadinejad's visit has come without the assistance of the United States.

US forces are not involved in security for the visit and did not provide helicopters to transport Mr Ahmadinejad into central Baghdad.

Instead he had to travel by car along the usually dangerous road from the airport to Iraqi President Jalal Talabani's residence near the US-controlled Green Zone.

Having to run the Sunni gauntlet down airport road would be bad enough, but if I were Ahmadinejad I would be more concerned about the dark forces of the great Satan, I bet the lads at Lockheed Martin or Northrop Grumman or the likes really know how to knock up a double dawg super mean IED, and as we know the Empire has a proven track record for getting rid leaders that it finds less than desirable.

Get him on the way back maybe, and what odds on that happening? about evens at a guess.more

Everything you wanted to know about IED's.

I am not overly keen on reporting the nuts and bolts of war but this is a graph of incidents from the site above, scary shit.
