Busy Week

I must apologize for my lack of updates here lately. It has been a busy week. It has been an especially bad week to be an Iraqi Policeman in Kirkuk. One of their police stations got hit twice yesterday. Five IPs were killed in the first attack. Another got killed later that afternoon in a drive-by shooting. The day before yesterday, twelve IPs were killed attempting to defuse an IED. I responded to that incident, and it was horrible. They were all standing around the device when it exploded. Humpty-Dumpty comes to mind: "All the King's horses and all the King's men..."

Here is a link to the claim of responsibility to those two attacks.

The insurgency seems to be going on the offensive. The AIF (Anti-Iraqi Forces) seem to have renewed vigor as of late, turning a normally peaceful Kirkuk into a city of gunfire, smoke and debris. We have been running all over God's green earth, all day long.

Sorry again that I have been lacking in the posting arena, but duty calls.

And to those who have sent donations to Omar, they have begun to arrive, and he is overwhelmed with gratitude. He asked that I thank you from the bottom of his heart.

Oh, and if anyone knows of a place for me to host video for this blog, lemme know.
I got some cool sequences of us driving down the road and the kids flooding the sidewalks waving and screaming happily.

Scouts Out!!

I sent you a Gmail invite...the video hosting site is beta you won't see videos live on Google Video immediately....and they will have to be approved before they will be released!

" The content may be reviewed by Google prior to being made available online. You can rest assured, however, that we'll notify you if we cannot use the content you submit"

The site was was created to allow budding film makers to display their work.

Right now they are only COLLECTING videos for POTENTIAL inclusion in the program. Later on.. users will be able to search, preview, purchase, and play your video.

"In order to promote your video to users, every video on Google Video will allow users to see a quick preview. When we're ready to distribute your video on Google Video, we'll notify you. "

Once its available on this site...(meaning once its approved) then you can add a URL so that, users will be able to click through to blog...but my understanding is that ONLY people with GMail account will be able to view whats hosted on this site.

Im trying to get you an addy for a site that isnt so restricted. I'll let you know shortly!

Stay safe!
