"Iran's invitation to host the interior ministers or other officials from Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Syria, Turkey, Jordan and Egypt has been seen as a bid here to shake off allegations that Tehran's clerical regime has been fighting its quarter-of-a-century-old battle with the US on Iraqi soil."

"As if aimed at making an advance counter-move against any possible charge on the part of the Iraqi delegation at the meeting, Iran's deputy interior minister for security affairs, Ali Asghar Ahmadi, declared in Tehran late Sunday, "The Islamic Republic is ready to train Iraqi police and border guards and even equip them as well as help with the country's reconstruction." Iran must have understood the importance to itself of Iraq’s security and stability, while it appears that Turkey is still pondering what to do."

"On one of my trips to drop off a detainee at the jail, the Senior Interrogator told us not to bring them in any more. “Just shoot them” he said, I was stunned, I couldn’t believe he actually said it. He was not joking around, he was giving us a directive. A few days later a group of Humvees from another unit passed by one of our machine gun positions, and they had the bodies of two dead Iraqi’s strapped to their hoods like a couple of deer. One of the bodies had exposed brain matter that had begun to cook onto the hood of the vehicle, it was a gruesome, medieval display. So much of what I experienced seemed out of control, I saw so little respect for the living and almost none for the dead, and there was almost no accountability. "

"So anyway my points is this. Almost everything in America is returnable. I could go to Lowes, buy a toilet, take a monumental crap in it, then take it back and say, "You know, what? The plastic was just a bit too cold on my butt cheeks this morning." I'd get my money back in no time. Could you believe being able to take a crap on the thing you buy and then returning it? Man, imagine the possibilities. "
