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.

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.

  Today was the third day in a series of escalating violence in Baghdad. The story began when Bader Regiment made an attack on one of the Al Sadr offices in Baghdad. Then Al Sadr armed forces made many attacks on different offices of the Islamic Party which houses Bader Regiment. Just yesterday there was an armed conflict between the too forces at one of the main streets of Baghdad, then the Iraqi National Guard and some US forces came into the fight, the result was six different burned cars, which the Iraqi police pulled and pile under the bridge, I saw them today, and I say the marks of the battle on the ground, rounds and marks of explosions were everywhere.

  Yesterday I met a very interesting guy, he was taken as a prison in the Iraq-Iran war, he was taken prisoner on 1981, then release on 2002. Imagine 21 years as a prisoner. He told me that there was only two ways you could get released. The first was in a prisoners switch which happened a few times between the two countries, but not all the prisoners were released. The second way was to enlist at Bader Regiment, but no one would be accepted unless he had killed 5 other Iraqi prisoners, how brutal. Then the prisoner would be released to enlist with Bader Regiment and would fight for them. Now this regiment is in Iraq and supported by Iran, it's main task is to kill Sunis, and has been doing so since the end of the war. It is being supported by the Irani Islamic party, but right now it is in a big fight with Al Sadr forces, plus there is the Ali bin Aby Talib's Brigade, which is part of Omar's Regiment, and Omar Regiment is a terrorist Regiment who are followers of Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, needless to say this brigade is an ally of Al-Sadr armed forces against Bader Regiment. This information is known in the Iraqi street and doesn't take a genius to figure out what is going to happen in the next few days between these sides.

  Leaving the war and coming to peace, today I read a small manual that has been distributed by the committee to write the legislation. The manual has many useful information, and it has a table of dates. At 15 October there will be a voting on the legislation which will decide whether it will be used or not, then the elections are going to happen on December 15, we have already gotten our names listed for the voting, the elections are yet to come.

Nice blog, i am linking to u....keep on writing but i have a bit of a suggestion about ur average iraqi plot device, why don't u write him in stories? i feel that u have not used this to its full extent...so far u have only said the Average Iraqi would do so-and-so in such a situation, while u could give him more detailed features (average iraqi features, write from his own perspective, how he reacts to certain situations, BE HIM)...

Anyway, i will keep an eye on ur blog, it's very interesting and i invite u to check mine as well...
