Well by the title of my post you can probably guess I am in Iraq. A sitrep is army lingo for situation report. But at least it is not an acronym . My conversations now are about 80% acronyms and I only know about 5 and what they stand for and I feel guilty about it because I will be getting these long string of orders from somebody and when they finish I am going make them go back and translate all the acronyms for me.
My thought was that once in Iraq I could give an eye witness insight to what is happening here, but now that I am here I see that I am an eye witness but it’s a worms eye view, and not even a free range worm, but a worm in a jar, so my on the scene blogging will be of little significance. But the good news is that still leaves me with a wide range of insignificant things to right about. Like this wasp, I was as big as my thumb which you could have seen if I was brave enough to put my thumb next to him.
