In the past, I have had views from people in certain countries that are suffering some kind of political distress. An example is the Palestinian territories, now called the State of Palestine, as far as WordPress is concerned.
But I just noticed today that I had two view from Iraq…IRAQ?! Are you kidding????? With ISIS running amok, two people had the time, and the electrical power to surf the net and read my blog.
