TALKED TO A SOLDIER TODAY ON THE TANK
I ask him how the situation was in Baghdad.
He said when the first was here. There was a constant shooting of guns a them.
After the amnesty on the guns it slowed down.
So he said the number of shootings decrease slowly and consistently.
Now it is seldom.
Most of the gun shooting is celebrations. Someone gets married and shoots off guns.
So they go and investigate.
He was very relaxed and not worried about the guns.
Although he also said, and it the common opinion. That the organized attacks on troups
are not by the Iraqi people, but from all the outside countries that do not want Iraq to
be a democracy or part of a group that is friendly with the western world.
