2 yrs ago, when Sunni killing of Shiites began in Baghdad, Ali quickly gathered a few belongings & fled. Last month, family returned home but didn't stay long. 'We thought it was safe' until makeshift bomb blew up garage. Disturbing trend already emerging

Uhoud, you are our eyes in Iraq and, by the look of it, deeply involved in your country's fate. I think you have three steps to follow (it may take another 5 years):a)get through to terrorists leaders and beg them -for Alah and Iraq- to stop. b)get foreig troops out as soon as possible. c) change the iraqui government.
But for that you should speak with iranians, talibans, sunnies, shiies, etc...anybody that can help. Also you should start to prepare -in secret- honest people to run the country when you are free. Remember God/Alah helps those who help themselves.

Uhoud,
I wish Blair and Bush had listened to the millions of their own citizens who begged and pleaded with them not to invade Iraq...but they did and have caused the greatest humanitarian disaster since World War 2.

Yes our troops need to leave you soil promptly but who will fill the gap? I shudder to think...

One thing I am certain of is that Enric's suggestion of getting in more outsiders is not a good idea...outsiders have caused the problems and Iranians are seen by many still as hostile to Iraqis who have fought a war with them...they may still be threatening border areas according to what Uhoud has been telling us...no Iraqis need to get rid of the outsiders and work out for themselves how they are to be governed and by whom.

Uhoud, thank you for telling us what you see around you; goverments will say things are better when they are not. I am truly saddened, as so many of us here are, by the tragedies your people continue to endure.

I think many people don't understand the tragedy of Irak. The war ended four years ago, since then is pure terrorism; there is not a place in the whole country where a civilian can feel safe, and that is not because of the foreig troops.
But now we have a problem, dit America and UE make the mistake of thinking that the irakies, once lost the war, will sourrender the guns and go back to work (like happened in the XX century wars), or on the contrary, did they expected that chaos, terror and destruccion, and so the american firms be able to make fortunes?.
Now, thanks David Gould for mention it: they are in a circle, americans go= chaos. And why I advocate for direct talks with the enemy is obbious: First find honest people (should be some around)and reorganise that country (far and away and in secrecy, otherwise....)
As for the borders problems, they are specks of dust in the Irak's earthquake.
