Land of confusion
Yes it is! This is what Iraq is like these days, with literary no services and no security at all.
What confuses the situation more are the solutions of the smart government that only aggravate the situation. One example for that: they invented the Odd and Even rule that allow you to drive three days a week and when u ask them why? They will say it's over crowded and there is on enough gas stations, well? How about building more gas stations and opening the closed roads that we have too many (more than u can imagine) in Baghdad and of course you know why they are closed? For security reasons! Taking in consideration that we don’t have security at all. I guess u can see what kind of a smart government we have that keeps pressuring the people for solutions.
That's not it! Yes there is more, I wish you can take a peek at our new confusion sorry constitution. It's too long to discuss it here but I think you will like one of its articles that say:
1st: Islam is the official religion of the state and is a basic source of legislation:
a) No law can be passed that contradicts the undisputed rules of Islam
b) No law can be passed that contradicts the principles of democracy
c) No law can be passed that contradicts the rights and basic freedoms outlined in this constitution
I think it's anyone's right to choose his religion, right? Well, if you are a Muslim and you wanted to choose another religion the penalty will be death! That’s all. And really I'm waiting to see how they are going to workout this Article.
I hope you didn’t come to a confusion sorry conclusion that the Iraqis are idiots, no they are not but our main problem is that we are ruled by amateurs and we really need professionals and the other problem is the Americans don’t have but those amateurs to consult and they will always give them false readings.
Things didn’t come out the way we hoped or even imagined and we can't blame but ourselves because we chose the people in charge now. Let's hope our choice will be better next time.
Till now the best thing happened to Iraq is the "Operation Iraqi Freedom" it was the surgery that cut the tumor off and started the even better "Democracy by Force" healing process in a community used to deal with force and for many it's the only language they understand.
Don’t panic! Things in Iraq resolve in a different way.
And please don’t understand "Democracy by Force" the wrong way, what I meant was the American "Forced" the majority to take the minority in consideration and this is the soul of Democracy.
We have too many things to be confused about but one thing for sure, we used to walk the tunnel with no hope of getting out one day but now we can see a weak light at the end. Do you know what I think? It's freedom.
