Ok hows this... I wouldnt work in Iraq for any ammount of money regaurdless of my situation here in the states. Why? Because

1. Your chances of die'ing just went through the roof if you go there to work.

2. You wont be among familey or friends.

3. The place is in a war torn state so things arnt exactly peachy but then again when the hell has it ever been there? So why go NOW ?

4. You would have to learn Arabic and who the hell wants to do that?

5. Im sure the house's there and everything that comes inbetween isnt anywhere near as acceptable a liveing space compared to here in the states.

6. Money is just not worth giveing up so much and putting yourself at such high risks unless im maken like 10 grand a day and id honestly work for 1 pay check and then id be out. But again thats pretty unrealistic.

Sure your gonna get paid alot more then you would here and I do mean ALOT more but depending on what your willing to sacrifice for the green to some people there are more important things in life then makeing money..

Hell I know for damn sure if i was working in Iraq id shoot the first rag head that looked at me cross eyed and ask quastions later! How do these guys get grabed? I mean come on? Who the f-ck works there without any gun? PEOPLE IN AMERICA WORK AND WEAR GUNS!


That's a good question V. Joe. All of them should be strapped to the tilt. No westerner should voluntarily go with any kidnapper. Some of these guys are abducting people so they can sell them to Zarqawi or whatever his name is. They might as well go kickin and screaming and blasting in all directions, because the kidnappers are going to behead them anyway.

It appears that major kidnapping and beheading's are slowing down. Maybe things will calm down after the election. Could be phat jobs in 2005? Would you go after all that had happened?

SmileyLoc the reason they dont give workers over there guns is the same exact thing you said "i'd shoot any raghead that looked at me funny" LOL. Funny but the truth is a gun in a untrained hand in a intense situation is not a good thing.

I find your caveman style extremely funny smileyLoc but then agian take what you say as just venting spur of the moment comment and not truly how you feel once you think. Still funny. =)

Never, I don't believe in supporting external imperialism when I'm fighting internal imperialism. Will never support the US oppressing others as it does its own.

I would never work in any location where the threat of violence is severe, kidnapping, torture, beheading, etc.

But these acts don't happen that often though.
