Finally ... "Green Zone Baghdad" ...
this is an idea the iraqi bloggers have suggested for some time. They lamented that coming and going to/from Baghdad had no security checkpoints and/or that there were many unsecured ways of coming and going.
Should have been done years ago.
Stupidest thing that I have ever heard.
If the Iraqis were to dig trenches around Baghdad, I sure as hell hope it will be after our guys and ladies are out of Baghdad, and for that matter out of Iraq and back home period.
