Iraq: The Wall Issue

Iraqi blogger Omar tells us why the Adhamiya and other walls being erected in Iraq are becoming an issue and why they shouldn't be ignored. “First and foremost, I don’t know why “The Wall” is becoming such an issue now. Work to construct similar walls started weeks ago in the Amiriya and Ghazaliyah districts. The “news” went utterly unnoticed then. But that’s not what matters. What does matter is effectiveness versus side-effects. Neither should be neglected,” he explains.
