Baghdad SNAFU

Vox:

Doug Ollivant: I wouldn't say it's better than people think it is. I would say it's more nuanced than the perception here is.

A couple things jump off the page at you. Life in Baghdad is normal: people are going to work, there are traffic jams, etc. Even though, in some places, the Islamic State isn't that far away, Baghdad's just very normal.

Its just like the rest of the Muslim world. Work, Play, Terrorists, Bombings and Murders.

Just another day.

1 You can be quite certain that a raging lib rag like Vox would not be trying to downplay Baghdad as "normal", were George W Bush still in office.

2 "nuanced" is liberal code-speak for "full of crap"

Indeed, and if you were awhitey-white smarter-than-you "elite" leftist like I am, you'd have the "intellect" to understand that this is, like, their culture, man........it's so much "better" than our "neocolonialist", cisheteronormative one, amirite?
