    working in time of peace was ok with me that is in mid seventies and eighties of last century ,

    but after 2003 , the American ruined every specification and good work we done , so i do not expect any work with British or Americans since 2003 till now , even i prefer British as i worked with them for at least 8 years , building bridges, engineering facilities , power generation , water treatments >>>>etc

    now days they look for politicians, they have the power to grant contracts , they have the power to get large amounts of bribes , any connection from US companies shall be with politicians , they do not want to change , corruption flourished from 2003 till this moment , so if i get work , it shall be the leftovers .
