An Average Iraqi

An Average Iraqi is just a fictional character whose....well, fictional. I will use this character to make a comparison between him and real human beings like myself or any one else.

Name:Hassan
Location:Baghdad, Iraq

My name is Hassan Kharrufa. I am a 20 year old Iraqi student. I study civil engineering at the Department of Building and Construction at Al-Jami3a Al-Taknologia (The Tecknology Univirsity), Baghdad, Iraq.

Small Minds

  I know it has been a while since I last blogged, been busy. Yesterday I went to college, There are still some spots of water left here and there, but what got my attention is an underground hall which is about 2m below ground level. This hall has some water still left in it, the water is about a feet high, but the staff are using a pump that is no bigger than my hand to get the water out, I think they will be finished by the day after tomorrow, if the pump can survive that long without being shut down.


  The only possible explanation is that they are VERY small minded, because it is obvious that a 40 m2 hall is going to need a lot more firepower. So they bring in the cheapest motor they can find and plug it in, then leave it there and come check it out a couple of days later, what would that accomplish, probably burning the pump and the hall won't be much different, and then they might think of getting something a little bigger than that pump.


  Another example of small minds are the public transports that come and go from college, the main street which the college is connected to, is called (Al-Sina3a St.) meaning The Industrial Street, it is a pretty street with lots of computer stores in it, it is known all over Baghdad that if you want anything related to computers, then you should go to Al-Sina3a St. The problem is that cars park and double park on it's sides so that leaves only one moving lane, and that is the lane in which those big public transit cars come and make their stops, and they don't move an inch until the car is full. This usually creates major traffic conjunction and other public transit cars waiting for their turns would go mad and screaming everywhere for it to move, then they take the first one's place and do exactly as it does.


  Well today we discovered the reason why our cable connection is so Unconnected after 7:30 PM. The newest way to make a vehicle explode is to wire it with a mobile, so when the mobile rings the vehicle explodes. The US army has put jammers on it's humvees and tanks, and they jam any transmission including wireless connections, and that is what caused so much trouble with internet. The same happens to my cell phone, after 7:30 PM the signal disappears and it re-appears near midnight. And the reason so many cars explode after the targeted convoy is too far is that the terrorist would rather die than go back to his comrades in failure. And that is the smallest mind I can find.

Hi Hassan

Your posts are great.

How do you obtain a driver's license in Iraq? Do you take a written and driven test? At what age can you drive? Do you have driving instructors or are you taught by family members?

Hello Libby

Thank for the compliment. Taking a driver license in Iraq only requires that I pass the driven test, no written test. But the driver's license is not required these days, I drive around without one. Even if I want one I can get one easily without having to take any tests.
