Baghdad calling: Do good to improve your golf swing

Sunday, March 06, 2011

The Iraqis, despite America's efforts seem to have democracy thing a difficult time with all this. Just last weekend, Nuri al-Maliki did the United States supported Government most poorly if tens of thousands of Iraqis across the country against the endemic corruption of the Government and the lack of power demonstrated.

Seemingly legitimate concerns, but the Government still killing 29 demonstrators responded to the 'day of rage', hundreds more injured although the Prime minister's Office were arrested only four hundreds and reportedly arrest.

The Government also reportedly beat and some journalists, and others tortured and shut down a TV station. (Note to file: time to repeat first amendment series.)

A US Embassy spokesman said that the Iraqi security forces "In General not violence against peaceful demonstrators have used." Of course, everything depends on the general definition of "in General."

But is not to provide help on the way. The US Agency for international development is the "part of the story be" with signing up for a "unique opportunity, contribute to a society, which was the center of civilization for thousands of years" - looking for a number of people, NamlichIrak.

There is a fine opening, such as in "the mission flagship capacity building program" for a "talented officer of Iraq basic social services can help improve", said a Jan. 31 announcement. And the absence of such basic services is "the single largest source of public discontent in the today's Iraq."

Hesitant about life in the Iraq? The job posting has a long section titled: "life in Baghdad - what is it really like?"

Eight years this month to overthrow "Movements in and around the international zone" - but is it since the invasion, Saddam Hussein, "remain very limited too due to the ongoing security threats of the green zone."

How about an occasional picnic in the countryside? No, "Travel outside requires large logistical and security efforts of Baghdad" the posting says, which means that a security escort must be available, otherwise you will be all day at your desk.

"A concerted effort was made, USAID employees with a life-support system, some of which reduces the hardships,", says the booking yet.

"After a day at the Office, you can in two full-size fitness-studios, an indoor swimming pool, a Yoga Studio, a golf driving range or on the Embassy engage in basketball, volleyball and tennis courts." You can also see the latest movies and dance on the Baghdaddy the embassy employees, Association Club, which offers live and recorded music every weekend.

It is kind of like a desert of the most version. And you have cable TV and Internet access in your "suite-like double occupancy apartments" private bedroom. The complex has an own power supply, so there's no electricity failures like the plague Baghdad. (We seem to remember that the current better in the 1980s, before the operation Desert Storm in 1991 and worked before Iraq became a vassal state Iran.)
