I finally got the truck trip vid to run smoothly. My connection must have been messed up. Sure was interesting to be able to travel to all those places. Funny, even though I have had the hounds since 1970, and had an interest in the area, because it is so diverse, but not till the war-s there did my interest become strong. I guess because seeing and hearing about it in the news, and all the complications there, with tribes and all did it really get interesting. The war in 91' started my interest, but vaguely. I got books out of the library to learn about some things. like the Marsh Arabs living IN wetlands in the south of Iraq, and the Persian Gulf. PBS recently did a show about them being restored, and Even today, there is tension, with scientists needing to travel with armed private contractor security, and leaving before dawn and varying their route to try to avoid trouble, and tribes arguing over whether they can travel in one area controlled by one of them, like Many years ago, and this is the Shiite area who were helped by the war, like around Basra where the Brits controlled.

I had heard about Saddam draining the marshes back in the 90's, and pictures, like of the canals he had built, and he did some really bad things, but now, like you mentioned the Partition of areas, seems like we added to the problems. I was struck when I learned about India and Pakistan's troubles long ago, when Muslims and Hindus had their conflicts, and 1 Mil were killed, and their migrations. I drifted from religions many yrs ago, and glad I did, and feel like an outsider, looking in to the problems, and want No part of them.

The Marsh Arabs reminded me of the explorer Thor Heyerdahl, who had reed boats made to sail the Atlantic, to see if people from the east could have come to the Americas before Columbus. It was the RA Expeditions, and done twice. He is famous for sailing a balsa wood raft from islands in the Pacific to western S America.

Around there is an ad in the beginning and about 9Min in, but then to and then back to the show.
