Falling in love in wartime Iraq
By Claire Bates BBC World Service
Quote
However, a chance encounter with a soldier in the Iraqi army changed everything.

"One day I was sitting outside and this guy came out of the shower block. I saw his hair was shiny and very black and he was smiling. I just thought, 'Oh my god, this guy is really cute.'

I would think they should keep the name of the Iraq soldier private; because of the situation in Iraq and possibility of reprisals.
“I was supportive of and campaigned for President Trump in 2016, and I am very encouraged with the substantive policy victories we are getting, whether it is an historic tax cut bill, whether it is regulatory reform that’s unleashing jobs, whether it is repealing the Obamacare individual mandate — which I led the fight to do in the United States Senate — whether it is nominating and confirming strong constitutionalists to the courts. ..." - Cruz
