What else I'm working on
Besides the Desert Wolves, I'm also working on border issues relating to the elections. CNN says:
"In advance of the election, Iraq's leadership plans to seal the nation's borders to thwart any plans to disrupt voting. Closing Iraq's perimeter January 29 to 31 is one of the latest efforts to reduce risks to people planning to cast ballots for a 275-member transitional national assembly."
This article also notes that "Intelligence sources estimate 150 car bombings and 250 suicide attacks are planned ahead of Iraq elections at the end of the month." There were 4 car bombs in Iraq just yesterday (glad I got delayed an extra day).
