Arbil, Northern Iraq
P.S. Jeff, Internet access is a litle shaky in Arbil could you please post the above link on every forum. It's important that our people see what is happening in Northern Iraq.
P.S.S. Pancho sorry about the shots with guns, our testosterone got the better of us. You are right we should know better. Last night some Kurds had a bit of a blue in the foyer of our hotel.

One Kurd took a severe beating while another was shot in the stomach.
Thank Ashur, Rabi Yako was whisked to safety by his Assyrian body guards, but Linda George and Shamiram were very shaken.
