Had a whiteout sometime between 10/26/2005 12:10:55 PM Iraq time and now.

If anyone was trying to visit and "experienced difficulties" could you drop a note in the comments mentioning the day, time and nature of the difficulty?

Thanks (and thanks cile) (Zeyad, this is why you need to post to your blog more often. Just in case! Not wanting to throw weight around, but.).

UPDATE: if anyone's had probs viewing other blogs could you please drop a note as well, which ones, at which times, and what the page showed. Thanks again.

More numbers - secret poll results

Yiikes. But this reflects worries that have been plaguing me for the past few weeks. Do I like what this implies? Nope. But you deserve the truth and you shall have it.

Poll results from a secret poll commissioned by Britain's Defense Ministry In Iraq, and obtained by London's Telegraph:

Eighty-two percent of respondents said they "strongly oppose" troops being in their country, 67 percent feel less secure and 72 percent have no confidence that the occupation will succeed.

45 percent approve of attacks on foreign troops.

Worse still:
In some areas 65 percent support attacks, and less than one percent think the occupation is improving security.

Is it really any surprise?

Sources: the ScienceDaily, and the World Peace Herald (if only we had some).

Update: Tellingly, even Iraq The Model are having trouble explaining this poll to their regular visitors, having conceded that "maybe even 90% of the people in any country do not want foreign troops" and "it could be true or close to the truth that 82% of Iraqis do not want the troops to stay indefinitely". I would venture that staying indefinitely or not is a mute point, opposing the presence of troops is opposing the presence of troops. Quoting the article:

82 per cent are "strongly opposed" to the presence of coalition troops.

Re article authenticity queries. Sean Rayment is a London Telegraph Defence Correspondent, a few web searches will throw up other articles of his (yes and some as controversial too - go to the tele, key "sean rayment" into the search box and click go). I do-not sense fabrication and do recognise the journalistic style, typical in that poll reportage is in itself formulaic and generally closely follows questionnaire wording. For example. How the question behind the finding that "such and such per cent are 'strongly opposed' to the presence of coalition troops" might typically be phrased:

Overall, do you support or oppose the presence of coalition troops in Iraq? Is that strongly/somewhat support or somewhat/strongly oppose?

1. Strongly support
2. Somewhat support
3. Somewhat oppose
4. Strongly oppose

Nuff said. Question forensically reconstructed. Good poll reportage sticks closely to questionnaire wording because, as many astute netizens are aware, different answers can be obtained by asking different questions.

As for queries re the time frame and researchers, the Telegraph article states the poll was conducted in August and:

by an Iraqi university research team that, for security reasons, was not told the data it compiled would be used by coalition forces.

While the article states the team weren't told who the client was for security purposes, it's not uncommon for client names to be with-held from interviewers in some reknowned international research organisations because it helps prevent interviewer bias. So far, methodology sounds legit to me.

Very fairly, I thought, the article also compares the results to another earlier poll and notes that:

The findings differ markedly from a survey carried out by the BBC in March 2004 in which the overwhelming consensus among the 2,500 Iraqis questioned was that life was good. More of those questioned supported the war than opposed it.

And queries re polling areas? The article specifically mentions results from Maysan (one of the four provinces under British control) and Basra. Given that Maysan is "traditionally the home to many Marsh Arabs" and that the Marsh Arabs are amoung the few who have faired well under this war with the reclamation of marshlands, it is striking that even so "65 per cent of people in Maysan - believe that attacks against coalition forces are justified". Why is this? Could it be that, though the marshes are irrigated again, the people are still largely poor and brassed off? In citing results for "Justification for Violent Attacks", results from Basra are compared with Iraq as a whole:

The report states that for Iraq as a whole, 45 per cent of people feel attacks are justified. In Basra, the proportion is reduced to 25 per cent.

Again, I cannot help but notice how even keeled the whole article is - having published "less sensational" results along with the damning 82 per cent finding. I also find it interesting that Basra is not as supportive of violent means and think this is consistent with cities globally. I have a theory that people in larger population centres are generally more passive. Town dwellers might fight the rat race but they are also the ones out on the streets en mass during anti-war demonstrations, they like to eat and shop and have electricity and don't like it when this is disturbed by having everything around them blowing up all the while.

Are Iraq The Model correct to question poll results? Yes, by all means question anything when the fog of war is all about us. I just wish those two were as critical of all the pro-war drivel their visitors feed them.

Referendum, soldier's view

Chad was in Sadr city for the referendum:

Right now, we are assisting another Infantry Battalion in Sadr City covering the elections. No one has patrolled there in over a year, and you can certainly tell. After the first night, all the windows in the trucks were busted! They are throwing everything except their Mommas at us. Ironic, considering we are there so they can vote, and they are trying to let us know just how much they hate us. Alot more of our soldiers died while I was on leave, the violence is increasing each and every day. The Army hates the fact that soldiers have blogs, and they are beginning to make it known more

And his "about me":

I am sick of seeing the American people give away what so many have died to protect. I am tired of Independence Limited...freedom with their acceptance. Stop sacrificing your liberties for security.
Read whole blog.

Referendum links

More news out of Iraq from Truth_About_Iraqis whose been doing some research from abroad. Points to an Israeli source.

Plus a link via Cyberhouri from Khalid, contains "items regarding the vote".

And lastly, slightly off the topic, refugee update (Al-Walid border between Iraq and Syria).

Intelligence, lol

Somebody wrote asking about suggestions for NGO's and agencies in Iraq to contact because they want to go to Iraq and do good work there. The writer writes they are an "army veteran, former intelligence analyst, and the mom of a soldier who was in Baghdad in 2004, who is now in Afghanistan". This person tells me they "hate George Bush and most everything he has done" and that they "truly believe that it is up to people like us at the grassroots level to share information and get it out to the world in order to bring about change we can't rely on the media and the politicians to do it".

My answer:
Look it's great that you're taking the time to find out but personally if you're a former army vet and intelligence analyst you should have a pretty good idea yourself where to go. I'm really sorry Sharon Jumper but just getcha self a ticket and go there if you want to. With qual's like yours you should have no probs getting through customs and into the green zone. Who knows maybe you really are sincere but you have quite a history there to overcome.

And while I'm harping on about intelligence gathering, haven't those bods asking Zeyad why he voted "no" read the drafts (numerous) themselves? I mean really, if you want to take a free opinion poll to model your next attempt on why don't you just go back and read everything that everybody was writing about it ages ago?

Sorry, I can't be bothered tippytoeing around with platitudes today. If you've managed to weather d-kos I'm sure you'll understand.

Trolls are out, ignore any untoward comments and profanities posted in other bloggers names. Cleaned a few up this week.

XXX-rated adults only

And some bloggers just don't seem to have the referendum on their minds at all.

Break from referendum

The kid has not rambled in a week or so, maybe has something to do with his holy mood. Afterall, blogging can bring out the viper in one sometimes. Or who knows, maybe he just wrote his heart out. Read last rave.


AnaRki13's thoughts on the matter. I admire this kid, he gets all sorts of trolling from underhand sources trying to brainwash him but he still sticks to his "guns" (metaphorically speaking, he seems largely peaceable).


That is the state of things here... read about the state of things.

Iraq Referendum Voting results

The Al-Anbar and Diyala provinces seem to have voted 'no', although the latter still needs to be confirmed. Most thought Diyala would vote 'yes', so more on that later. read all of it (including the bit at the bottom where you get to vote for whether Jeffrey's comments should be deleted).


Further update: many more links from "truth about", including "two cents". Read more. Sorry it's a drag linking to the same blogger all the time, but this one's actually compiled current info that few others have. I dislike having to rely on one source, or on bloggers alone, but the msn aren't doing a very good job of covering this particular moment (and for me to say that is saying something, I'll usually defend journo's I know are taking risks with their lives. It's just that there really are fewer international reporters in Iraq, and the effects are beginning to show. News Iraq is drying up in the mainstream and that's a worry, it's like closing the door while scar eats bambi).

Referendum news

This is probably one of the only times ever I'm relying heavily on blogs for news (I usually like to read from a variety of sources but the msm are being spack about this one, perhaps not totally intentionally. I think they really don't know what is going on either and are relying on press releases which other parties have written. In other words, they are being spoon fed information and are unable to supplement it with on the ground journalism).

Here is from riverbend:

So the referendum is... read whole thing all of the way through.

Babylon everywhere...

Not many new blogs at the moment so, inspired by current favourite song (sample) thought I'd post about the strange permeation of ideas through writing, in unexpected ways.

That song is from "the green room" on the eco_nation album, a New Zealand production. The twelfth track on that album is Babylon Born. Now as far as I know, Aleon are not Babylon born per se. So why, you might wonder, would they do lyrics like that? Is it a political statement about current events you might ask. Well from what I can tell yes and also a statement about much older political events, wound up with religion. Gasp, the r word! Doesn't e just do subtle gallows humour and politics usually? Anyway, going back say about 200 years or so when christian missionaries arrive in nz, bringing with them of course the bible. Which was absorbed into local culture. But funnily enough, where as the missionaries who bought over the bible were largely european, and understood the bible replete with europeanised saints (not their fault, they were only reading it through the culture they knew) local prophets read the bible in a quite different way. Prophets you ask bewildered? Yes, nz has it's prophets but that's another story (one that I hinted at a few weeks ago but not sure anyone picked up on the clue nevermind). And what those prophets distilled from the text was perhaps quite a bit closer to, I won't say truth because all truths are coloured by personal experience, closer to the bible's land of origin one might say. At a time of local political upheaval and land warring, and in a culture with an eloquent oral tradition, biblical stories struck a cord. And while the world might have rocked in the twentieth century with the scandalous suggestion that jesus was a revolutionary, in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in New Zealand the re-politisation of biblical adventures was more subtle and far less scandalous. Largely because the government that had installed itself was not really aware of what was going on, and how could they be, it was a subtle exchange of ideas transferred over a few thousand years and that's something that nobody really can stop. It's sort of something that history just does naturally all on its own when people interact. And so Babylon came to New Zealand, and even today there are a number of what you might call variant sects that have developed out of it. Anyway, this post might bore you and I'm no expert so I'll stop now. I expect there are some people more versed then I who might like to take issue with certain suggestions I am making and that's fine. Just filling in time I guess, between blogcounting.

More sample tracks from the album that inspired here (sorry, they're just samples but I didn't want my fingers slapped for handing out other people's work for free. I wish they would put up a whole song every once and a while though, especially seeing as how lots of the songs are about being un-money mongering).

What was the point of this post? Hmm, I think I was winding up to saying how some memories are preserved over thousands of years in mysterious ways and even war can't stop that. And I think I was going to say something about some music in New Zealand which mysteriously attributes roots to Babylon.

* Oh yes, one last off the topic fact, one of New Zealand's other names is Aotearoa.

Disturbing, Hassan writes Iraqis abroad cannot vote in the upcoming constitution referendum.

KurdMedia headlined the same thing a month ago:

Kurds and Iraqis abroad cannot vote on the constitution
KurdishMedia, UK - 15 Sep 2005
... 15 September 2005: The Kurds and Iraqis abroad cannot vote in the referendum to decide on the draft of the Iraqi constitution, which will be ...

Only now I just keep getting a "Bad Request" message and can't read the article. Scouring for other mentions but not finding any. Why isn't this out there?

And infuriatingly (well alright, annoyingly, I don't get furious very often) when I take up the last google resort to find anything via blog all I come up with are links referencing blogs that I've already read and this site. Which is flattering but it suggests there is not much information about this and people are reliant on too few sources because it's getting more difficult to find out what is going on inside Iraq. Or more to the point, what is going on about being an Iraqi abroad.

Basically there's a great big Iraq media hole right now. Iraq does not have a critical mass of bloggers and journo's are either embedded and controlled or bailing out because independent reporting is becoming too dangerous for foreigners with cameras and without local knowledge smarts. The remaining dribble of info is dependent on press releases from government organisations. And a handful of blogs.

And still no more info on whether or not Iraqis outside Iraq can vote during the referendum.

mentions other referendum peculiarities, salam has shutted up again and not posted for weeks and river almost writes what I'm working up to; there is an interest void and these three alone can't be expected to cover each and every detail that nobody else does. I half hoped I might find something new at Iraq The Model and didn't. What they have posted is fairly much a summary of what mainstream news outlets are reporting; last minute deals, Sunni boycott, ratification looks to go through. Piling publishes a comprehensive summary with question and answer section but it is unsurprisingly Kurdocentric, which is fine, it just means that I'm not finding the expat type info I'm looking for. You might think I could find it on Fayrouz's blog, but bless her soul, she is selflessly embracing the neglected gay and lesbian community instead.

And why does it worry me that Kurds and Iraqis outside Iraq may not be legible to vote in the referendum? Because it means that those who have left are deliberately cut off from the decision making process and prospects for their return diminish. There isn't even an option to boycott the vote, the decision has already been made by someone else. People tend to leave warzones because it's not safe and they are unhappy with the situation. It's a subtle form of protest not uncommon under unpleasant regimes past and present. Now why would a demographic like that be excluded hmm. Braindrain, exodus, exile, call it what you will, it doesn't seem all that different to what was happening during the Saddam UN sanction years.

Not looking especially grand from where I stand.

So, two questions.

1. Can or cannot Iraqis outside Iraq vote in the referendum?
2. If not, why?

TAI wrote a big long post about it, if you can patiently wade your way through the stuff about hoaxs he'll get to the point eventually (he has kindly recreated the moment below in comments). But why is nobody else publishing this. What is going on? Not in the msm anywhere, you'd think it'd be prime op-ed fodder but no, dead silencio.

Identity, my controversial bit

Some writers seem to be wondering about the Zawahiri letter to Zarqawi. Is it a fake or not. Some are even suggesting Zarqawi is no more then an arrangement of letters himself. And some people seem very very keen to vet opinion about it.

Who knows, what I do know is this: constructing identity is a collaborative affair. Does Osama Bin Laden care that a clandestine international terrorist ring is attributed to him or that he is accused of what might be other independent bombings? No, he doesn't seem to mind at all. In fact, just like the IRA and it's variant branches he colludes with his "opponents" by accepting "the credit" for missions accomplished. Do Pentagon senior officials mind that Osama might be dead already? No, they seem happy to claim he is still large as life and threatening as ever. Similarly, do Pentagon senior officials mind if rumours spread that Zarqawi is dead? Apparently not, it means their president can pretend to have knocked out a "key card". And does Zarqawi mind if people think he is dead? It appears he doesn't, perhaps it gives him cover.

And so while these two apparently antagonistic forces collaborate by agreeing to oust each other, ordinary people suffer. Very ordinary people who cannot be bothered playing the pomp and ceremony game or donning an outfit or taking "a side" or even a stand.

Very ordinary people who notice very odd things. Like how this seems to be at least the second "resistance" letter that has mysteriously made it's way into Pentagon hands. Like the one last year that the cpa published. The one from Zarqawi himself, apparently. And how Jim Lobe's article about last year's letter is disguised as a go at "the neocons" but all the same proposes the letter is authentic and that it's all about the Sunnis getting the Shia's. Teeheehee. I don't think anybody buys that line anymore:

We must repeat what we mentioned previously, that the majority of Muslims don't comprehend this and possibly could not even imagine it. For that reason, many of your Muslim admirers amongst the common folk are wondering about your attacks on the Shia. The sharpness of this questioning increases when the attacks are on one of their mosques, and it increases more when the attacks are on the mausoleum of Imam Ali Bin Abi Talib, may God honor him. My opinion is that this matter won't be acceptable to the Muslim populace however much you have tried to explain it, and aversion to this will continue.

(excerpt this years letter)

Or like how Lobes article strangely mentions last years letter was on disc while another apparently knowledgeable piece published by the Jamestown Foundation Terrorism Monitor about the same letter implies the whole thing was hand written, with a pen. And hand written by an educated Sunni-Baathist no less. Ahem. All the Sunnis fault the Jamestown Foundation tries to advise. And apparently among others the fault of the omg, hilarious, "immigrant mujahideen". What a stab in the dark that was from the Jamestown Foundation, infer the migrant population.

Or other things, like how the letter from Zawahiri to Zarqawi doesn't seem to be to Zarqawi at all but to someone else who is being asked to send Zarqawi greetings.

Or how, almost halfway through on page 6 the author seems to be proposing a democratic solution:

We don't want to repeat the mistake of the Taliban, who restricted participation in governance to the students and the people of Qandahar alone. They did not have any representation for the Afghan people in their ruling regime, so the result was that the Afghan people disengaged themselves from them. Even devout ones took the stance of the spectator and, when the invasion came, the amirate collapsed in days, because the people were either passive or hostile.

My goodness, doesn't that sound like disengaged populations all over the world.

Yeah, I think it's a big fat ill-spun fake. There ya go, that's what I think of the handiwork. Still it is a very well written letter. Very florid style. I rather like it, as a fiction piece.

Update: ok, I was just kidding around with my prognosis, either way it makes little difference. War is still wrong and the constitution and referendum are still riddled with loopholes and allegations of misconduct (ie if everything else is a fraud, why should one letter lift eyebrows). I actually find it more interesting that someone was going around approaching others for "opinion" re the letter. Particularly when bloggers were probably gearing up to focus on the referendum instead. If the letters faked, well funny haha. If it's real... well heh Zawahiri sounds like an interesting and astute bloke.

Disparity update, with hopeful ending

Everyone knows about injustice and inequality in the real world so there's no point me badgering on about it today. Instead, I offer some badgering about the injustice and inequality in our imaginary worlds.

Yesterday, within 24 hours and two posts on Daily Kos over one thousand Americans were looking for Iraqis to "build bridges" with. Baghdad would be lucky if 1,000 people had reliable electricity last night let alone reliable internet access. Most Iraqi netizens at that time seemed to be either sleeping, reading paper, fasting or feeling war weary, checking email while their generators had a spare moment or doing other things to sustain their real life existences.

1,000 Americans at a lose end within 24 hours and no Iraqis available, being all occupied.

Still, another door has opened and that is a good thing. I suppose if anyone isn't feeling too burnt by the Americans, the Americans would probably not mind too much if you just showed up any old time at Daily Kos. In fact you could probably just show up and not have to say where you are from and they probably wouldn't mind either. Being friendly Americans.

Invites ! Inter-global !

Invites. Tired of entertaining guests on your own blog? Bored of reading/sparring with emigre? Looking for something new? Good, some Daily Kos posters have invited people over to their site to discuss stuff. They've also invited people to discuss stuff at P4C and at Politalk UN-21, which seems to be a site about discussing the UN (which everyone seems to like doing, right, left and centre).

(Just to make things clear to new American and other worldly visitors, I am not in or from Iraq myself, as is patently obvious to those who put up with my cultural faux pas, but a number of other contributors to this site are. Please read the blogs over in the sidebar and mind the trolls. What a relief it is to have kos contact as well as sporadic deanite forays. Thanks).

Sometimes... I just keep posting in the hope that someone else will get sick of my tireless prattle and decide to oust my monopoly here and outpost me or stand up to my fearless pacification.

Because I know nothing much, except perhaps for just one thing: I do not want to see another dictatorship, or make-believe democracy, installed in Iraq. And this, as far as I can tell, can only happen when as many people as possible tell their tales, because only then can some sort of composite "truth" be revealed. During war there is just so much propaganda that the only way to out-propagate it is by presenting everything (theoretically). Because propaganda seems to infiltrate every action, even those most innocent ones. Perhaps especially those most innocent ones. Sadly. Oh what a fretfull cynic am I.

I wish I could do more, but then does an ant wish it could lift the world? Or is an ant content in lifting it's own bodyweight. Perhaps an ant is not content at all and just lifts without reason.

Back! With new links !

Ok, Khalid's back, Truth is back and I'm back (sort of).

Here's an assortment of new blogs that have piled up in my absence, expressing a variety of views (via ihath and Najma).

Other news - just from a South Pacific perspective (just to compare propaganda) everyone is saying down here that Iraq is all in the clutches of the resistance including Baghdad. And that somebody introduced a new rule undermining democracy even more.

Other views - about fighting, no I don't like it. No not even when I've had to fight off brutes. In fact, that is especially why I do not like violence. It's a turn-off and endless cycles of revenge appall me. Words on the other hand, are another matter entirely. So, whoever is doing all of the killing at the moment better just like think about how you are going to appeal to my sensibilities and come up with some poetic rhetoric pretty durn fast because I've about had enough of war thank you all very much. Phew long sentence. Lord how I can't stand imperialism. What an oily oily mess.
