Dracul’s Barbecue

It is told that Count Dracul had his enemies impaled on the outskirts of Transylvania to horrify the Turks from ever wanting to invade Transylvania that was back in the fifteenth century.

Last week a neighbor found his son in front of his door, Impaled with a reinforcing steel rod, there were tomatoes and onions on both sides of that Rod.

I am going to stop blogging for a while.

Keep the faith Zappy, you are an inspiration..

I have friend going to Balad next month, a helicopter mechanic [young kid really] his job will be to service them on the base and in the feild when they go down.
Lots of Americans are trying to help Zappy.

Good luck. Take care. There is a lot of evil around. Iraq is going through the same experience as Algeria went through in the 90s.

Algeria wasn't invaded by the most advanced, barbaristic military in the world.

Do the clerics speaking at the Mosques have any influence at all now ,,,or is the violence and hatred between each extremist sect
so embedded that even a call
to end it from the clerics will be ignored ???

Just wondering ...???

Zappy! said...

Let me clarify, its not a matter of sectarian violance although it seems so, its a matter of Mafia gangs back by Politic parties and some corrupt Policemen and Civil servants, these Gangs are stronger from the Iraqi Army the Police and the Multi national forces combined, thier tactics are very clear one day they kill a Sunni the Other Gang will kill a Shia and so on, as an example 90% of Baghdad are Mixed Ethinically I can also say with full confidance that most Families are mixed either racially ethinically or religuoslly.
a very rough Idea of whats happening today in Baghdad is the film "The Gangs of New York"

Truth About Iraqis said...

Zappy, you really hit it on the mark. I totally agree with you, Gangs of New York depicted an atmosphere very, very bloody .. merciless almost.

I really don't know what to say...

I can't even begin to imagine what are you supposed to feel like if you see your own beloved one in such a position....

Mafia they are indeed, because their killings are so devilishly stylish....I'd pick sleeping with the fishies anytime.

I heard similar stories, about the guy wrapped up in silophan and delivered like a nafar-kabaab dinner to his house, and who can forget the timeless dog's head sewn to a human body corpse?

Zappy,
News from Iraq are beyond comment. It is inexplicable, but in my opinion it doesn't represent Iraqis as many would like to say, but it shows how sickening and malicious human beings could be when there is no law or order.

Don't make it a long absence,
take care
