Iraq is Ripe

Another remarkable and entertaining message from Salam in Iraq.

He tells of the latest rumors sweeping the country including one about who all the phone numbers of the Iraqi leadership have been changed after their dial tones were commandeered by a recorded message in Arabic saying in effect “Don’t follow orders and you won’t be killed.” After a couple of hours of this all the numbers were changed.

He also tells of sandbagged streets and checkpoints . . . not to slow down invaders but to counter homegrown insurgency.

Perhaps someday . . . hopefully in just a few weeks. . we’ll learn just who this person is. Can a syndicated sitcom deal be far behind?
