A shot of a house from yesterday's patrol. If an earthquake ever hits this place, every home would go down like a house of cards. Stacked cinderblock with a really poor mortar job, and I GUARANTEE no rebar or reinforcement of any kind.

They do, however, have a satellite dish. Who knows what it is hooked up to.

That is what strikes me most from all the photos of Iraq that people post - the really lousy quality of the bricklaying, as though there was absolutely no pride in doing a good job. If the coalition can train them to build to a professional standard, it will be a big accomplishment, never mind democracy.
