In One Night, Iraqi Turns From Friend to Foe
The last temptation of Imaad
Read the story from WaPo and then the commentary that I found at Instapundit, especially Iowahawk. Picture a 32 year old loser sitting at home with his Mom when American soldiers discover his porn collection. Then he beats his Mom because he is embarrassed. There is a subtext of repressed sexuality in our war against the Islamists. This story is really about a man who is wound so tight because of a culture that treats woman as barely human and sexuality as something for which they should be ashamed. It is funny in the same way that the poor weatherman makes you laugh and cringe at the same time. It makes me want to send Imaad a subscription to Playboy (as if that were possible) and tell him its alright, its natural and your Mom understands.
