ATTENTION: The Iraqi Government Is Not On Vacation!
Even though the Iraqi Parliament is taking the month of August off, the rest of the Government is still at work. The most important, and up until now, the most effective branch of the Iraqi Government is the Ministry of Defense. The mirror of our own Department of Defense, the Ministry of Defense is working through August to continue funding programs to supply their Armed Forces.
So, when you hear that the Iraqi Government is on vacation, don't believe the hype. The U.S. Congress takes more than a month off every year, yet our country runs fine without them. Sometimes it runs even better, but that's another topic for another day.
The new Iraqi Ministry of Defense motto: 'Working our asses off to strengthen and protect our nation, unlike the bastards down the street.'
FYI - I'll be traveling up north to work on some Helo issues. Be back in a few days.
Stay Classy Baghdad!
