People, I have the most amazing surprise for you, well for those who have been reading the blog before the war. do you remember [Riverbend]? she’s in Mosul now she is OK but she had to quit her job because some shia fundi took over wher she used to work and made life miserable. and she sent me something to put on the blog.
and she is *NOT* my female alter ego as some poeple have suggested, actually there were stranger suggestions that [salam pax] is actually [riverbend] but she decided to diguise her self as a man. whatever.
take it away Riverbend:

Sorrrrrrrrrrry Salam it took so long to answer but I
had various reasons- won’t happen again.

I guess you’ve been hearing news about Mosul? Well it’s
worse. The security situation isn’t too bad (they don’t
rely on Americans in these parts- if they did it
wouldn’t be any better than Baghdad). Electricity is
more or less sorted out (although we do have problems)-
and no, it wasn’t the Amreeeekan who got things
running, thank you very much.

Things are really bad for females everywhere. Here it’s
somewhat safer, but not too much. People are boiling
over because of the whole Uday/Qusai saga… I mean
give me a break- something like 400 troops for 4
guys??? You’d think they’d want them alive with numbers
like that! People are infuriated because of the whole
commotion- planes flying, Apaches hovering and
freaked-out troops shooting right and left (yes, they
shot civilians). Then, on top of all that crap, they
decide to show the pictures on tv to ‘prove to the
Iraqi people’ the deaths of Uday and Qusai…
Pleeeeease… those pictures were obviously Bush’s war
trophy. And could they have come at a more convenient
time for the nitwit??? I think not…

So, things are tense here. They have been since the end
of the war. Someone has told troops posted in Mosul
that everyone is the enemy- even little kids- so watch
out! And they have been doing just that.

I’m so angry and frustrated Salam as everyone seems to
be. We’ve got thousands of angry, ignorant American
troops running around with tanks and guns pointed at
everyone. What the hell happened? And since you’re
working with the press, what’s up with not giving the
number of American casualties?! It’s funny how on
Al-Jazeera the give the numbers in the following way:
‘two wounded and two dead’… half an hour later it’s:
‘three wounded and one dead’- ‘lo and behold! They are
being resurrected!!!

Well, I’m telling you now- there have been plenty of
casualties in Mosul during the ‘gunfight’ and after (in
one of the wooded areas), but you’ll be hearing about
those in the following form: Troops Die in Car Accident
in North of Iraq as Car Swerves to Avoid Crossing Sheep!
