PalTalk or Studying Iraqi Mentality

I have been introduced to PalTalk, which is like any other Chat hosting program but with loads of control by administrators, and of course it depends which room you enter. Some are pure rubbish and other are quite decent.
Browsing through the Iraqi rooms I stumbled against many that Insult people, some glorifying Saddam, Some Glorying Terrorism and other ideas and Ideologies and religious matters. However I did find a Room that I have stuck to Called IRAQ University IRAQI. (the spoken Language in this room is in Arabic and Other than Iraqi's are not allowed to give an openion during the Political hours of the Room between 19:00 and Zulu)The reason is the owner of this Chat room is a decent person who you could say is unbiased to any Idea that is presented, I also found out that its one of the oldest rooms in PalTalk that is being mostly visited by Iraqi’s from overseas and Mainly Iraqi’s who took refuge in the Rafha Camp in Saudi Arabia back in 1991, but then that’s another story.

If you just sit and just listen you shall understand many things about the Iraqi Individual’s personality, how some believe their Ideas are righteous and anyone who disagrees with these individuals should be ridiculized being called either a Ba’ath sympathiser or a terrorist among other things.
So it seems that people’s Natural behaviour has a greater emphasis on what you learn as an individual.

One individual is what I can honestly say is a butt Kisser who Idolizes the U.S. Republican Party and hates to the core his own fellow Iraqi, this individual has the capability of anoying even the most Cold Hearted person in his opinions and Ideas. he reminds me so much of Dr. Mowafaq Al-Rubaie.

That sounds like a good place for discussion, with a big variety of views. I wish I knew Arabic. Thanks for the report.

Do you get any sense of what proportion of the people there are inside Iraq? It seems to me that those outside often have more extreme views (of all kinds).
