Joint Minister’s Meeting - 1000 hours
The meeting today is being held in one of the smaller auditoriums in the Convention Center inside the green zone. There is a raised platform with a table and chairs facing the “audience”. The main floor area has chairs in sweeping semicircular rows complete with fold up tabletops to facilitate taking notes. It reminds me of a typical City Council chamber back in the US.
The room begins to fill with Iraqis from the various Ministries and their “coalition” counterparts. The room is well lit but there is no air circulation and certainly no air-conditioning. The room is incredibly hot. I’m drinking from my omnipresent water bottle and sweating like mad. I always wear a long sleeve shirt to ward off the sun and the wrists are slowly turning dark from the sweat running down my arms. It seems as hot as when I walk in the sun the kilometer from the Palace to the Civil Affairs office.
Within a few minutes, from the rear of the room, enter General Strock and, of all people, General Garner. I was sure that General Garner was long gone from Iraq once L. Paul Bremer arrived.
General Garner address the group by thanking the Iraqis for working together to solve the plethora of problems currently being experienced in the country. He promises more coalition soldiers and a concerted effort to establish the Iraqi police as a stabilizing force by proper training. He talks of joint coalition and Iraqi security patrols. He hints at future elections throughout Iraq but is not specific.
General Garner discusses the current fuel shortage of “benzene” (gasoline) and cooking fuel. He says that the United Nations sanctions are the source of the shortages. This is the first that I’ve heard that the UN sanctions are still in effect. It seems most bizarre considering that we invaded the county under some sort of UN resolution as partial cover. He promises that the coalition will only wait two more days for the UN to lift the sanctions. After that the coalition will begin to sell fuel oil regardless.
Again, I’m wondering why the US, which just preemptively invaded Iraq is abiding by UN sanctions against a regime that no longer exists. I’m thinking no wonder the current situation is so screwed up.
General Garner, “I want also to dispel the rumor that the United States tanks run on benzene. They don’t. They run on diesel that we supply. The tanks are not competing for fuel with Iraqi civilians.”
It’s probably the heat, but I have this strange vision of Abrams tanks waiting among the long lines of Iraqi cars and trucks at the gas stations in Baghdad.
General Garner continues his remarks hitting on non-specific plans to upgrade the sewer system, provide cash payments to Ministry workers, and getting the Ministries established in temporary offices. (He leaves unsaid the obvious, that looting damage requires this.)
In the middle of a sentence the lights in the room flicker off. The irony of that makes me wish to scream. Here we are in the green zone where everything is under our control, and we can’t even keep the lights on. What hope is there for the rest of the country? Mercifully, it is too dark to see the face of General Garner.
There is quite a bit of conversation among those present as we are directed down the hall to an area with large windows. (A few window openings are covered with plastic sheeting to replace some broken glazing.) At least there is plenty of sun and natural light in Baghdad so we can continue the meeting; this meeting of the most influential Iraqis working with the “coalition-of-the-willing”. The irony is dripping as fast as the sweat down my shirt.
General Strock begins a discussion concerning the best way to move forward on providing the Ministries with office space. He notes that the assessment process must move forward more quickly. He would like priority assessments to be effected at a rate of twenty a month. (Our team is accomplishing about two to three a week, depending upon the size of the building.)
To do this General Strock is going to tap into the capabilities of the Iraqi engineers who work in the engineering and construction firms owned by the former Iraqi government. These “government-owned-enterprises” have a greater capability than the relatively few teams that the US has deployed.
The procedure will be for the Iraqis to do the fieldwork and draft up the reports. Our team will provide quality assurance and guidance as to what level of detail and focus the work needs.
I’m wondering what the Major is thinking of all this. She is attending today’s meeting. Her direction to us was to make the reports “creative”. How creative will the Iraqis be to her? Our reports included photographs, drawings, maps, and
Durian, Exposed, Redux
We ate this on the street, at a fruit stall on rickety plastic stools and a shaky fold-up plastic table in Geylang, Singapore's "red light" district. If it was more relevant, I would discuss the district and the racial politics associated with it, but hey, this is about durian.
One of the "uncles" of the stall split it for us and because it is so easy to be tricked into buying poor or inferior durians, many quality stalls will split open the durian a bit in order to let you smell and see the lobes so you know you aren't getting an "empty" durian which can happen from time to time.
The taste of the D24 durian is completely unlike the durians I've eaten before. It's smaller than the Thai durians that show up in Hong Kong and North America. The aroma is much more intense and there's a lovely bitterness to it that sets off the sweet creaminess much better.
Also, according to my "Number 2" first cousin, once removed, the "dead body" smell associated with durian arises from its "collision" with air conditioning. If you eat it outside, the "dead body" smell isn't present (or as pungent), but I'm not willing to risk eating durian in an enclosed, non-air-conditioned room, so could someone with empirical evidence confirm or disprove this theory?
