"When you leave your house you expect to die in an explosion or get shot", states one man. To stay as safe as possible, people avoid certain jobs, clothing or neighbourhoods. The problem is that every day, the list of things to avoid becomes longer. "Bakeries are bombed for selling bread to the Iraqi police … barbers because they shave beards." Now sportsmen are being targeted for wearing shorts and anyone wearing jeans, anything red or hair gel is also at risk. As one man laments: "There is nothing cheaper than Iraqi blood. Deaths have become normal."

    Never should have invaded. Sadam was a monster but it takes a monster to deal with monsters.

      @Zugekokster Trafficberlin the term democracy is a euphemism for veiled oligarchy. The West is failing and must constantly plunder other’s resources to stay afloat. Only the proceeds from illicit Black Market trafficking ( Drug Money, organ harvesting, human trafficking, blackmail) keeps the economy from completely crashing immediately…

      We like Saddam as Iraqis, I don’t see a monster in him, he didn’t work with Al-Qaeda, had nothing to do with 9/11, fought the filthy Persians, reclaimed Kuwait to Iraq he is more of a hero. My opinion is shared among a vast population of Arabs except for some Iranian shills and Kuwaitis.


      it was a warm up war for Iran. get ur bones ready for the draft. OMG THE SPURS
