How long were you there? Long enough to get an understanding of the local culture and language? 'Cause I was. It was a year-long deployment and like I said - I spent more time outside the wire than I did on the base. It was about eight-ten hours a day on our outpost (if we were lucky), and the rest of it was out among the locals. A huge amount of our job (remember, I deployed during the occupation, not the war) was meet-and-greets as well as conversating with the people on the street to find out how things were going. I became fluent enough with Arabic and the local body language that most of the Iraqis were convinced I was an Iraqi.
So yes, I think I can safely claim Iraq as one of the places I lived in.
Also like I said, this is largely irrelevant and off-topic. I'm not going to be entertaining this line of questioning any longer in this thread. If you feel it truly necessary, you know how to PM me.
