Happy New Year, Iraq

A sergeant in the US Marines called Gunny (or Jarhead) John writes a lively blog and lists his interests as fishing, hunting, cars, trucks, golf, and blowing shit up (one of the perks of the job)[sic].
I’m not sure exactly what this last item involves but if many of his comrades also think of it as one of the perks of the job then this might explain why bringing peace and stability to Iraq is taking longer than expected.
