Walkingstick: BR.... OPINION PIECE.. SNIPPET
Iraq Just Got Its Own Version of Donald Trump
He has been described as an impulsive, narcissistic egoist who lives in the shadow of his father. He’s also a populist, a political outsider who has hurtled to political power thanks to a surprise election win. This is not a description of U.S. President Donald Trump, but rather of cleric Muqtada Al-Sadr, whose political coalition recently won Iraq’s parliamentary election.
What A Long Strange Trip It's Been
To be honest, that's putting it mildly. Whether it be six months or six years, if you've been on this ride and involved in this journey for any length of time, then I'm sure you can definitely relate. At this point I'd be willing to say that a long, strange trip is putting it mildly.
This roller coaster ride of an adventure has taken us through more ups and downs than a kid eating cotton candy while riding a pogo stick.
With that being said, when it comes right down to it, regardless of how stressful this journey may have been, I couldn't be more grateful to have been made aware of this opportunity oh so long ago.
Having been involved for over half a decade and counting, my two week stress test of hoping my first 'batch' would arrive in time for the RV seems beyond a mere memory. Yet the angst is still fresh in my mind.
