Phipps took this photo where he was today. KBR staff and its subsidiaries and their staff go out of their way on Holidays. Halloween's a pleasant surprise. I can't wait for Christmas - (mostly to see what we're allowed to do in a Muslim country - versus what the ACLU allows us to do in the US).
Candy-corn and water, mmm-mmm. Halloween in Baghdad.
Our Iraqi hosts could not be more accomodating. They all dressed up . . . . and did a frightful impersonation of ghouls today! A wedding party, a police station with a five-yr. old girl in it, and another crowded market. All blown to bloody shreds as entrance fee to the self-detonators' Bordello-Valhalla. "72 Vestal Virgins at the Will-Call Window . . . ?"
Carnage. Mayhem. Zombies. Ghouls and Goblins. Howling (barbarity). The Specter of Death. You call it Halloween.
We call it Tuesday.
