Keeping Blogging More Difficult Than Army Missions

Keeping Blogging More Difficult Than Army Missions
Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone contacted me by Email for asking, thanks to all readers, thanks Neorotica, thanks MrGhost, I had seen my interview and I like the picture you put it.
I'd like to say big " Hi " to Sam, and thanks God you back to your out post safely, Welcome Back buddy!
During my vacation , I was still thinking about my blog, and I'd like to write in the future,I got lots Email, most of them positive and the others are just bullshit, to be honest with you, I had thought to shut my blog off,and never back to it, many Emails i had been received affect in me, I also thought to create new blog but in Arabic, so may be I can help the people by giving them some helpful guidance and instruction about how to deal with army during any raid or search operations, many Emails had received asking me to guide them to that corporation that hired us, and how to deal with their exam, I helped them by telling them where can they go? and what type of questions they gonna expect!, Email from Media Organization and cyber organization invite me to participate with them making news and various reports specially about Iraq.
One type of Emails took my attention, that was for those guys would like to work as Interpreter!, I ask myself many times! Am I doing the right thing when I helped them and told them where and when should they go? few days ago when I discussed this issue with my workmate "S", he gave me negative view point, He told my:
S:why are you putting a mask when we go mission?
Me: honestly,because I don't trust people, and I don't know who gonna meet in place we going to
S: So what's your guarantee that the person you gave him help by Email,wont be one of untrust people you try to avoid?! what's your guarantee that the person you gave him help wont come in in our base by chance?!
Me: I don't know, I didn't think about all that, I just think about one thing when I received his/her Email, I thought he need help, and should be help him, because one day I was need this help and wish some one help just to help, not because I'm his relative or I'm from his neighborhood or we are from the same sectarian, or same religion.
S: Help yourself and then help the others
I thought about what he said, and honestly It makes sense, but, I have to help them,whatever their evil plan or thoughts, I got back to my memories when I had nothing to go to college at that time and I need just to know the place and the way to that corporation makes hire for people as interpreters.
May be I'm wrong, but I did that with goodness intention, and there is another thing, If some thing wrong happen to them, will it be my fault? I felt guilt, and I need your view of point about this issue,what do you thing SAM, Do I did mistake? what do you thing Neurotica? You are in Iraq, and you know what I mean literally.
everything was going good in final exam, I got back about 7 days ago, and directly went and doing some missions and raids,my family gave me a call last night telling me, my brother was succeed and pass to next class, he is in college too, really was a good news.
A lot of thing in my mind nowadays about blog and family and my future, I will talk about that next post.
Now I leave you with some pictures I took them last vacation, these pictures can give you a side from our life in our Iraq and gonna get Iraqis live abroad sweet memories about these places... have enjoy!!!
Two storey Bridge in Al-Jadirya neighborhood (Jisir abo Al-tabekain), near one of the International Zone's Entrance, if you keep going under bridge, you will reach at

Abdul Aziz al-Hakim house, leader of Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq, before these houses were belong to Saddam's followers,LOL, the house still house but its owner recently is the opposite of the first owner,hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa.As we say in Arabic: day with you and day against you.

Square intersection near that Bridge
another side view for that Square intersection
Road leads to Liberty Square intersection ( Al-Hurreya square), Look at the picture at power pole,It's for Abdul Aziz al-Hakim's brother, he passed away in Samara' shrine blast which was the first spark that led to Sunni and Shiite fighting lately
Related pictures about Abdul Aziz Al- Hakim(I'm always say: Politics is a dirty game)
The Seal for Ice Cream shop,I think, the oldest and most famous Ice Cream shop(Al-Faqma Ice Cream) in Baghdad(until now, most Iraqi people going to this place and hanging ou over there specially at sunset time)
Al-Karada neighborhood(outside Karada) (Al-Karada Kharej), one of the biggest christian neighborhood in Baghdad,before it was famous by its Top Fashion shops, but now, it's famous by its power generator's shops and Air cooler's shops (the most profit business in our Iraq)
Green Air coolers on the left side
Finally this Folkloric song for all readers, especially Iraqis:

See you next time...

Hey Sami! Glad you're back- that was a long pause man!

On that "helping" issue: sure there are probably some wankers who'd like to parse you for information to post on AQ -- er, I mean "Resistance" -- message boards, but maybe there really are more people like you who would like to step up and help Iraq improve or who just want a good paying job. You probably won't be able to tell which is which from email. I wouldn't worry too much about it. As long as you keep your information within "OpSec" generally you should just hope that the security and vetting of your employer is good enough.

Good luck out there and stay safe!
