The U.S. military released a video in Baghdad yesterday, saying it was seized during a raid in December in Khan Bani Saad, north of Baghdad. Those who were training the kids stood behind the camera. They watch the kids as they break into a house and capture the people sleeping on the floor inside. They watch them as they stop a man on a bike ordering him to sit on his knees and put his hands behind his back while they direct their AK47s on his head and chest. Some of their moves appeared to be similar to al-Qaeda’s, but the rest looks more like a military training. I believe most of those trainers were members of the disbanded Iraqi army who decided to take revenge after Bremer sent them to the streets.
God! What does Iraq have anymore? The entire new generation is going down. It is impossible Iraq would improve or return to its former shape at least after having this new generation destroyed. Of course, they are destroyed! They have nothing to see except death, bombs, warplanes, helicopters, dead and wounded bodies, shootings, beheadings etc… It has been five years since the war started. It has been five years of their eight or ten years, seeing all of these things in front of their eyes. It’s been five years of complete failure of the Iraqi politicians to sit down and see how grave the danger surrounding us has become. It has been five years of concentrating on who gets more, who changes the flag, and who prays for God. It’s been five damned years and all Iraqis could see is nothing but collapse, segregation, hatred, and blast walls surrounding their once opened neighborhoods.
The video was released, but words and actions from our revered government were not released. What is the parliament doing? Changing the flag? Is that all they could do? Or what? Approving a law of not opening a bank account in a bank not in your neighborhood? Or what? Weren’t they supposed to discuss education, build more schools, lessen the illiteracy rate and change the children’s way live their lives? Don’t these things worth million times of what they are doing right now?
Oh and now there will be those optimists opening their mouths, “How dare you say that. The situation has improved. People are living in peace. There no al-Qaeda” bla bla bla… The danger is deeper and bigger than these illusions. These kids who are trained will someday become terrorists and destroy any peaceful thing in front of them anywhere on earth. And you know what? It’s not only al-Qaeda whom we should blame for that. It’s a lot of people.
