With the removal of all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of the year looking more likely, absent an agreement to extend legal immunity, a large contingent of U.S. contractors will still remain facing their own legal and logistical ambiguities and challenges.

The complexity of the situation is not lost on top officials at

Purpose of Embassy in Iraq Questioned

US plans to fortify its embassy in Iraq have raised new suspicion about the diplomatic outpost’s purpose in the politically-gridlocked country.

Amputations, skin grafts and plastic surgeries are the painful battles these wounded warriors face on the home front. Now, science has a way to re-grow


Large Increase in Private Contracted Soldiers

If you thought the end of American intervention in foreign wars was nearing, think again. President Obama has been replacing soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan with private contractors—some 250,000 are currently deployed overseas—including Blackwater (operating under another alias.)

Secret Project Accounts For Decline in Iraq Violence

Apparently the following article cites “secret military technology” as being the key component to the rapid decline in violence that we have seen in Iraq over the past several months.
