Lest we forget: "the real situation in Iraq"

Laith writes about getting to and from work in Baghdad -- running a gauntlet of checkpoints and dodging military convoys, U.S. and Iraqi, full of trigger happy men with too much fear and too many weapons.

The way those people who have guns behave makes me like many Iraqi civilians feel that Iraq became a wild jungle where survival is only for the strongest. This kind of feeling kills the soul of patriotism in the hearts of people.

I never thought that freedom means mess and I never thought that liberators care only about themselves. It's too hard to believe that but this is the real situation of Iraq.
