Even Iraq Has Some Bad Mamajamas
Iraqi Women Take Up Arms
By Sharon Behn, The Washington Times
BAGHDAD -- While most Iraqi women live in fear of terrorists and criminals, one small band of women has taken up arms and is prepared to fight back. Employed by a private security company, the women ride in the front passenger seat posing as ordinary housewives when the company's drivers transport customers around the city in nondescript vehicles. But their firearms are always close at hand, and they are trained to respond with force if they come under attack.
My favorite part is about the woman who calls herself Xena. Her favorite action movie star is Jean-Claude Van Damme. She kicks ass.

Good for them! It's great to see them taking that intiative especially in the face of certain Islamic conventions about women. I wish we had AK training in High School though...12:12 PM
Milblogging.com Rule XIV. Never ever ever ever, post more than 4 or 5 milblogs in the same day. Even that's pushing it. Your readers will know you really don't do anything of value in the desert, besides milblog.10:54 PM
