My memoir so far (Part #2)

Loaded Words:

1. Bedlam-Complete and total chaos. The author ued this to put how much was going wrong in Baghdad into perspective by over exaggerating. (page 47)

2. Tent-The Author uses this word to describe the Republican palace. He says this because, there was no electricity, running water, or windows. The impact he was trying to make was that the palace had no amenities and therefore was like a tent. (page 47)

3. Rubbled-The author uses this word because it paints a picture in people's mind of bit and pieces of a structure. He uses it to describe a building hit by a cruise missile. (page 49)

4. Gun-toting-The author uses this to create a negative feeling in the reader because of the use of the word gun. Some people may be impartial to this word but most negativley associate this word. (page 54)

8. Orbit-The author uses this word to make the point that Paul Bremer III was involved with white house affairs. (page 62)
