Iraq: Horrors of War and Terrorism

Husayn Uthman, who writes Democracy in Iraq (Is Here!), compares the London bombings to daily life in Iraq: “I am very sad to see what happened in London, but for me, it is nothing new, those of us in Iraq have become used to tens of people dying on a daily basis, it is sickening, as I think we have become used to it, almost as if we are losing our humanity in the midst of so much death, pain and agony.”
