Back and safe

I am safely back in Baghdad. I was out at the Syrian border again, but nowhere near Mosul. I didn't hear about the attack until I returned late last night. I think I might have eaten in the chow hall that was bombed when I was in Mosul, but its difficult for me to determine the exact location. Whenever something like this happens, the emotion it immediately triggers is anger. Anger at the sheer cowardice of the terrorists who are too weak to fight us on the battlefield.
