Cry ,,,Baghdad!!!!


It was all over the news yesterday.. The United States Congress voted on a plan to divide Iraq,to turn the country into a Federation..

I'm not an Iraqi, and I'm not here to talk on basis of being an arab..

I'm just talking as a concerned citizen of the world...

I wouldn't say a word if the decision was made by the Iraqi people themselves... It will be their decision ,after all it's their country...

But the decision is being discussed thousands of miles away,on the other side of the world ,in the country which is occupying Iraq for the last 4 years...

What nerves do they have!!!!!

I felt really sad..It was some thing I thought we would never read or hear of out side the history books...

It hurts ,not because I'm arab..It hurts because humanity is going to this path again..

It hurts to see people get killed in the streets for no good reason but the greed and power hunger..

Children,women,men,husbands,brothers,sisters,old people,young people,iraqi people..

I felt sad and hurt,because Iraq is not only a map..

It's people

Regards

Salam,
I agree 100% with you. I particularly agree with the human aspect that you address---it's not about a geographical locations on a map but our fellow human family members. Thank you for this post.

Brings back memories of how the british partitioned india, creating pakistan and the kashmir crisis. There was no thought to the division process. And today in the news we read that israel is thinking about dividing jerusalem. Well, divide and conquer is the rule of inhumane leaders. One day justice will prevail inshallah

u r right,,best way to cntrol is to divide.....Make them smaller,control them more efficiently....The irony is through out history,occupiers have always been using ther same justification:(It's our call to distribute democracy ,freedome ,culture ,and well being)..along the path there was no thing but blood ,pain ,greed,and all the nasty things in human soul..
Thanjk u
