منتخب العراق لكرة القدم


The title of this post means The Iraqi National Football Team. I did try to include it in the text of the post but the cursor went all over the place, presumably because Arabic is written from right to left.

Anyway the team has just won the Asia cup. Against the odds too as Saudi Arabia were tipped to win. Hard not to be pleased for a nation of people who lets be fair have had a pretty miserable time of it in recent years one way or another. First the tyranny of Saddam Hussein, then the war with America, Britain et al.

Hussein's son, Uday was responsible for the national football team for a number of years. Apparently under his leadership "...
motivational lectures to the team included threats to cut off players' legs, while missed practices resulted in prison time, and losses resulted in flogging with electric cable or baths in raw sewage." Makes this lot look like pussy cats.

I hardly leave a response, but i did a few searching and wound up here "منتخب العراق لكرة القدم".
And I do have a few questions for you if you usually do not mind.

Is it just me or does it look like a few of these responses look like they are written by brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post.
Would you make a list of all of your social pages
like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to
keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job.
I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
how you presented it. Too cool!
