  1. As Hawkeye Pierce wrote home from Korea the fighting goes on, the hatred, the violence, the senseless brutality, men behaving like animals and then there s the war The grunts from M A S H would have felt right at home hanging out in the Baghdad Country Club, a small rump of a bar that flourished briefly in the heart of the Iraqi Capital s Green Zone, a refuge inside a walled refuge during the Iraq conflict.Joshuah Bearman tells the story of the BCC, an alcohol and testosterone fuelled haven wher [...]


  2. As the Iraq invasion settled and the US and Coalition forces settled for the transition to a smooth democracy, Bearman lays out this foaming frothy lie of the war and instead we se we see a military campaign and country with no plan and no way forward As Americans and Iraqis are dying just outside the tall concrete walls of the Green Zone, the mixed groups of Coalition, US and others are inside the drinking to their hearts delight as the war rages outside I watched this happen while serving in t [...]


  3. We got into the Iraq war after a PR campaign about how we going to do good things for the people of Iraq This story was about what really happened as we poured billions of dollars in to the effort to create a Green Zone I can see why our occupation was not appreciated I got to imagining what we would do if someone came into our country on the same pretenses and sent up a Green Zone and conducted business in the same way as we did in Baghdad I think the book is a good argument for reductions in t [...]


  4. It stuck me that the author really enjoyed writing this book and did not care if it was going to be widely read or not, which is what I liked about this book I also liked that it was written almost like an editorial The style and the content made it feel original and I quite enjoyed that It also provided some insight to the life and times in Baghdad at the time, without going out of context I am a fussy reader and I finished it I wouldn t go around recommending it, but I didn t feel like it was [...]


  5. This was interesting but didn t go into the level of detail about the Iraq situation I was expecting While my expectations may have been unrealistic, I bought the item looking for insight than was available Since there s still room to write here I will comment that I have not completed reading Killing Castro or Worst Case scenario and I have already reviewed Predator Priest Breaking News, The Consultant and The Hit.


  6. The BCC was a chapter from after I was over there but it s interesting to read about the watering hole in the safe zone It s a short book but it looks at one little part of a bigger conflict Rocket attacks were less frequent but Mookie s shi ites were still causing trouble Route Irish was still a dangerous drive and there seemed to be little rhyme or reason to how or why things got done This was a good introduction for me to the use of Kindle.


  7. In Baghdad Country Club BCC you hear the story of how one man through hard work and a little chance carved out a niche in the Green Zone during Operation Iraqi Freedom OIF 2006 2008 This is a neat story about an adventurous man who refused to retire to a desk and went back to OIF after his tour with the British Army With a little luck and a whole lot of networking he is able to create one of those iconic places and adventures that will stand out in history.They story is told in first person by t [...]
