I got a note from a friend today. An American who works in Baghdad and does not want his identity revealed. He says women are being kidnapped and killed for the clothes they wear. He says women are being hunted. The country is in chaos.
People are mourning the loss of Saddam Hussein, convinced things were better before.
It's an awful thing to think, that things might have been better under a murderous dictator. But it seems to be accepted wisdom among the diplomats.
I'm a very lucky person with every allergy known to man but still happy to be enjoying a wonderful life living in the best place in the world!
