Does anyone know of any forums where people from Iraq post??
1) How bizarre
2) Why on earth did you post this in Current Events??
Wow i was drink some Iced Tea, looked at your "tar, and almost spit it out! Its freaky!
What do you mean why on earth did i post this in current events? the affairs in Iraq are current..
why is it bizarre to want to communicate with the "terrorists"??? We live in the year 2006.. the internet is a substantial source for social cohersion.. I'm sick of hearing about all this ******** politics through the news wires, I want to talk to real Iraq people like we are here in this forum.. I would think something like this would be popular by now..
expand your miiinnndd..
well, I would think that most Iraqis dont speak english. I may be wrong, as most of the world does speak more english than we do other languages. so i dont think you would see anyone from the middle east on too many English based web sites. where they post, i dont know, sorry.
I'm really hoping you put terrorists in quotes because you DON'T think the Iraq people are terrorists.
Yeah I assume that the college educated youth of Iraq would know english.. but I didnt think about the idea of them having a forum speaking english with eachother.. it would be fantastic to have a forum of well educated people talking from both countries.
i googled some keywords and i found forums of absurd comments made by ignorant passive aggressive americans, thats far from what i want!
Mostly, I guess, because Current events is for news posts... your post had no news in it...
I have a feeling this thread may not have reached it's final destination yet...
Current Events is for current news stories, asking where you can talk to Iraqis isn't a current event
I'm Iraqi by blood, but I've lived in London all my life. I speak both English and Arabic.
Ha! I love the graphic.
To the OP -- here's a Blog Site that might be a good start and/or lead you in a productive direction.
On National Public Radio (NPR) They had a story about people in the US military who are blogging from over in Iraq. These blogs are full of insight into the situation over there. Unfortunately they didn't give any links to the blogs. I'd love to read those if anyone can dig up some links.
On another note a good friend of mine works in Omaha, Nebraska doing background checks for the US Military. In the past 2 years he has had to interview many soldiers who have recently returned from Iraq. My friend is from a multi-generation military family and is very pro-military and used to be pro-Bush. He said that these interviews have been brutal. These guys are coming back very emotionally messed up and all of them have been saying the roughly same thing - "nobody in charge has any idea of what we're doing, why we're there or when we'll be out." Very depressing. There also seems to be a general consensus among these soldiers that the Iraqi people are getting frustrated with us occupying their country and that the good will we had gained after capturing Saddam is now gone. Also, the number of severely wounded (meaning mutilated for life) that he has had to interview has been staggering.
