Yes it was ironic. Don't understand how bad spelling or wut not has to do with irony tho... anyways. That was an interesting ending. I didn't think suicide bombers got paid... didn't kno that. War has gone on for a long while, and it makes me really sad. I don't like reading or hearing about the war. I tend to avoid the topic but occassionaly... *sighs* i just hope it all ends soon before more soldiers are killed.

Are you in contact with ISM? My home in Israel is a gateway, where we host young journalists who come to bring the real stories out of the Occupied Territories. Have you ever considered joining and coming here to be an activist? They need young people with writing talents, and I think you could use a dose of the Real Story. You'd be apalled by what even CNN doens't report. My parents and Grandparents are at the demonstration in Rafah, I wasn't allowed to go because I'm not of age. My father was an Israely soldier in the OT's in the eighties, you can read his and other's true expiriences on this sight:
I think you could be of great help to our cause with your writing ability, all you need are the facts.

Good stuff. The bit about the British army being better equipped was a nice piece of irony! [In fairness to the US Army, we've had thirty years of sectarian guerilla war in Northern Ireland to learn how not to go about occupying cities where we aren't welcome]

well, it's certainly interesting. I would say though, that at the end, there didn't see to be much to support the man's support of suicide bombers, in fact, he seemed to be the type of personality who would be totally against suicide bombers, because suicide bombers believe that there is no other way to solve the problems in their own countries, than to draw attention to them, and they act fast. By the time his son is eighteen, there will be a new president, and fresh problems, which the Iraqis may believe will need a new approach. Finally, the Iraqi people have suffered from incredible brutality and opression. I don't think that any of the suicide bombers so far have even been Iraqis. Ther have been some Arabs, Palestinians, Moroccans, Pakistanis, but no Iraqis. After suffering so much violence themselves, why would they go out and instigate more?
Apart from this, your story was intersting and original. If you're going to do a follow up, i would certainly read it.

Course, you're skills are better than mine. Nice writing.
