pg 2: Who's winning in Iraq?
What I learned:
Despite the war going on nearby, many people are still living normally as they would have before. The kurdish people have been independent for the past 23 years only. There are many people in Iraq with the looks of a 'terrorist' even though they are just regular folk. Despite the peace, there are still high political tension in the region due to terrorism and suicide bombers.
Even if there is peace in Kurdistan, it could very well be shattered easily.
