Yes he picked a very silly time last year, considering several people had literally just been kidnapped and murdered in the same way. Like you say. Risk is the name of the game to get the best out of travel on occasions. But given the circumstances, i think he was just "asking" to be kidnapped at that moment in 2004. Silly guy indeed. Hideous and humiliating way to die also. I cant even imagine the horror.

I'm not sure about going to Iraq myself. Moreso, Yemen interests me. It's a place i first thought about in 1997 or so. But it just keeps on being put off because it's so awkward to get to unless you're doing a whole trip in that region. Nowadays it's another dodgy place to go given the risk of "political" kidnapping. So it can wait. Plenty of much more hospitable places out there to visit at the moment,me thinks.

About the Blog. I'll probably just keep the blog as a general diary or for notices to friends and family. I've been working on a free site seperately because i found it gave me much more freedom to do things, such as sound clips etc and layout. I found the Blogger quite limited in some ways unless you upgrade to their payed service. But it's still quite good :)
