"There are some who, uh, feel like that, you know, the conditions are such that they can attack us there. My answer is: Bring 'em on. We got the force necessary to deal with the security situation. “ - George W. Bush, July 2, 2003.

theres more of those kind of reports from yesterday aswell, but enough of the grim death and so and so forth, so look at this, it might make you laugh until you cry, realising that you (if you are on of THEM) had voted for/agree'd with this invasion on FALSE PRETEXT.

From blogger:-

Those pesky elusive WMDs: The U.S.-led group that scoured Iraq for weapons of mass destruction has found no evidence Iraq hid such weapons in Syria before the U.S. invasion in March 2003, according to a final report on the investigation.

The 1,700-member Iraq Survey Team, responsible for the weapons hunt, also said in a report released late on Monday it found no Iraqi officials with direct knowledge of a transfer of weapons of mass destruction developed by former President Saddam Hussein.

President Bush and other U.S. officials cited a grave threat posed by Iraq's chemical and biological weapons and Baghdad's efforts to acquire a nuclear arms capability as a justification for war. No such weapons were found but U.S. officials said it was possible Saddam sent them to Syria for safekeeping.

The report said the WMD investigation had gone as far as feasible and there was no reason to continue holding many of the Iraqis who had been detained in the process.
Bring ‘em on: One Iraqi soldier killed, two wounded by roadside bomb near Basra.


And one more bloggers post on a situation from a few days ago.... And some people In perth think that their lives are truely sad and not worth living, that they cant amount to anything or cant help anyone.. You might be amazed how much the words "My heart and thoughts are with you" truely mean to a person, or how much writing your anger down for others to see can help both you and them.

To feel comfort is to feel like someone else out there understands. To write your frustration into a blog is to let other people feel comfort.

What's happening?

On Sunday, we went to school to find out that a car bomb has exploded nearby.. The windows were not broken but some parts of the car were found in the school-yard! When we came back, a tent has been set up in the street, the kind in which people make funerals in (In Iraq, sometimes people make the funeral in a big tent to contain all the visitors). One of our far neighbors has been killed by robbers.. He's in his 30s, and was the friend of my closer neighbors..

The principle of our school, along with the school's consoler started asking my friend questions, they are interviewing her as the student who has the best grades, they asked her questions and wrote the answers they wanted, not the ones she was telling them! We laughed long about that..

Winter has ended, and spring is about to end.. We're waiting for summer. I love summer when it's winter, and love winter when it's summer.. Same as loving school in the break, and loving break in the school..
Same as loving technology in peace times and loving peace in technology's? No, no one would trade the safety of his family and friends for satellites and mobiles.

Today, our mathematics teacher told the story of her son-in-law's death after a student started crying because her father lost his eye in shooting at some time.. She didn't tell the story in our class, but in a friend's class. As my friend described, the mathematics teacher started crying while telling the story, some of the students started crying for her, and some others for realizing how pitiful the situation in the class was. Our teacher's daughter got pregnant, and called her husband to tell him the good news, he told her not to tell him the details and that he's going to come right away, which he didn't.. He was shot by the Americans on his way there..

One of the new computer teachers had a car accident when speeding up during shooting near the school.. I don't know how she is. I haven't talked to her at anytime, she hasn't taught me anything, but I'm concerned for her.

Note:The last explosion near our house (As the most trustful sources said) caused the injury of 13 persons, including 2 policemen... None of whom I know but the baker's sons.
