WHY TALK ABOUT IRAQ?
I am in Istanbul, Turkey. I have had a couple of discussions about Iraq. There
was a couple of people that I had met prior to the Iraq trip and knew I was going.
But it is very interesting to discuss or not discuss Iraq with people here.
I find that even though I have spent 1 month and 3 days in Iraq. They do not believe
a word I say. They have pre-conceived ideas and opinions that do not change.
I like to look up words. I will try to paraphrase how I a long long time ago tried to understand
the word "Bigot"
I got it from the dictionary:
Main Entry: big·ot
Etymology: Middle French, hypocrite, bigot
: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices
- big·ot·ed /-g&-t&d/ adjective
- big·ot·ed·ly adverb
That says it pretty well I think.
