Blog #7: Suicide bombings claim more lives in Iraq

More deaths are happening in Iraq, This time between the Shiite and the Sunni. Things are really heating up as more than 6000 people have died this year alone in Iraq and 350 people in this month alone. We must understand that this a country that is plagued by war and religion is a huge part of their everyday lives. Any way that people see it, there is no way to shape the lives of these people for the better, they are going to do what they want to do regardless. They are fighting for dominance of their own country.

When I did my tour in Iraq I was able to see all these things first hand, I saw the way the Iraqis treated us and even treated themselves, there is more than one religion there and they are all different. People must also understand that the people in Iraq are not all bad, but instead it is those certain few that make up for their whole country and make them look bad. Just because we are no longer holding troops there doesn't mean that war and deaths will suddenly stop. Iraq will always be plagued by war, it is their way of life.
