    • Abstract:
      This article discusses the author's experience talking to Sa'ad Al-Izzi, an experienced interpreter who once reluctantly translated American movies for Uday Hussein, while traveling around the deserts of Iraq. Izzi said Iraq is a recent country but an ancient culture, and they change at the pace of the grandfather of a snail. Izzi said the American task in Iraq is daunting and time-intensive. Upon talking to Adnan Mufti, former finance minister of one of the American protectorates in Kurdistan during the 1990s, he said Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Defense, told him that the federal system had worked so well in the U.S., with each state having its own rights and privileges, that it can work equally in Iraq.
