Anon from Iraq, Baghdad.
If you're interested in asking I'll be glad to answer.
Depends on my mood and if I have time to eat.
But mostly egg rolls and whatever left from the night's before dinner.
I'm a pacifist ? I guess.
Also I'm quarter Turkish from my mother's side.
No, usually just guns on semi daily basis or an explosion every week or so.
ماكو داعي تغلط يا ادب سز
رب التبعبص يعني الا انيجك يله ترتاح؟؟؟
My best friend is shia, what should be get rid of are religious figures of both shia and sunni, so the civil war in iraq can end.
And removing corrupt officials.
I have a somewhat fair skin, so ..
If you stay in the green zone, sure.
The heritage of Mesopotamia have long since gone.
I'm sunni as in my ID says so.
My best friends are shia,sunni,orthodox christain.
I liked him since his days in "Even Stevens"
Depend on where, Even in Baghdad there are areas were it's dangerous to go to after sunset because of militia.
Are you saying that your personal ID card in real life designates between Sunni and Shi'a? You are legally a Sunni? Now that is what you call separation of church and state, kekkles
>I'm sunni as in my ID says so.
lel do ID cards seriously include such information?
alot of middle easter countries have that for example jordan and lebanon its necessary as each community has different customs in some situations the most extreme one tho is in Malaysia where muslims have a law and non muslims have a completely different more secular law
so what if you decide to change from sunni to shia or from Muslim to Atheist or Christian for that matter? you can't legally do it?
I guess it's inconvenient to live in a desert.
Fortunately I don't.
>desert can be comfy
Agreed, I had the chance to be attend a union "مشايخ" found very comfy.
And the hospitality is top notch.
>baghdad is full of nice palm trees like everywhere
Long story short, religious figures are exploiting poverty to hire 16-22 yo men as "public guards"
I have an extra toe, is that OK?
Yes, and no.
"الحشد الشعبي" is fighting ISIS, the other shia militia is working under other agenda in mind.
I'm indifferent, as I said I'm asexual.
Yes, My last name or to be exact "اللقب" is stated in my ID, which usually indicate if I'm a sunni or shia.
Including my mother's name, my husband/wife name if I'm married, any disabilities and religion.
I don't know, it was like that before my grandfather was born.
Does your morals and believes encourage killing and harming other peoples?
You can change shia to sunni and the other way around.
many people do that to get married.
But you'll be denounced by the religious leaders of your cult.
You can change Christian to Muslim but not the other way around.
I find him hilarious.
And will probably nuke us if he get elected.
Very very unfortunate people.
At least some of them are, I know a few people personally among those that left because they were threatened to be killed on sight.
While others -like those that sexually assaulted women- are not.
They used the mass immigration to go and visit Europe, most of them were in those militia, they used the money they saved to go to Europe, since if they want to go through legal ways they'll be refused? Denied? not sure of the term.
Most "civilized" older people wish for saddam back.
Personally I don't have much memories of the guy, I do remember that every morning we had to " salute the great leader" every morning before we start the school day.
But things were much better back then.
I had an Iraqi cab driver who said "when Saddam was in Iraq, we had security but no freedom. Now we have freedom and no security."
Sucks that Iraq went from regional power to what it has degraded to now.
What's your take on what's going on in Syria atm?
>when Saddam was in Iraq, we had security but no freedom. Now we have freedom and no security
Couldn't word it better.
I always wondered, are you as nice and polite as you're portrayed in TV/meme?
Blender on max.
Asad holding to power will just make things worse, the rebels if took power will turn Syria into another Libya.
And ISIS is making the best of the situation.
I've been to the UK before.
But I can't promise you that.
>How's life in Basra?
Been there a few times.
Nice people, dangerous place.
>Do you think Barzani will declare K*rdistan's independence?
Who knows, My government do whatever benefit them and their families.
The people are unimportant.
>You can change Christian to Muslim but not the other way around.
This is wrong. Why not the other way around? Muslims should let people decide freely if they want to stick to it or not.
I heard about that stuff
Eh yes there are some, I guess between 3-5%
They werr already leaving before ISIS, but now more are leaving
There is a hbig assyrian diaspora in sweden and us
You say you've been in the UK, maybe you've been in other parts of Europe too. Anyways, how religious is the people in Baghdad compared to Europe? And compared to other cities, and the countryside? And compared to other countries in the area? Just tell me your guess if you don't really know.
There are a few, when I was young our neighbors were Assyrians.
Nice people they'd invite us on Christmas.
I had a crush on their daughter, she was a redhead.
And ever since then I had a thing for redheads.
It's not about religious as much as about extremist.
However the lower socioeconomic class the more they "obey" the religious leader of their cult.
I'm sorry if this is vague, but I'm not sure how to word it in English.
At one point? Yes.
But my circumstances won't allow me to do so.
My family depends on me, I have a job here that I really can't quite, The government won't give me my Bachelor certificate.
And it's not easy most Europe won't allow me to enter, and if I was able to do so,the residency process is long, and most likely will have to do a minimum wage job.
And I'm not good with cold.
Iraq, I just noticed that 4chan flag for Iraq isn't correct.
So our retarded government sent in 2003 our army to invade you. Do you hate us?
>What's your opinion on the people leaving?
Imagine having to leave everything you've worked for your whole life for your children be taken from you by force.
>Do you understand the anger against them in Europe?
Yes, I can relate.
Since it happened.
And things got worse after them.
Never understood that.
Yes, in the south.
Though most are being destroyed.
Standing in sun for 8+ hours kinda makes you edgy.
Also some people are horrible, I've seen stuff that no human should see.
A few months ago, there were this "religious celebration" for shia.
During that over 500000 Iranian and more entered Iraq.
Just like that, no passport check.
It was enforced and allowed by "religious leaders"
The "religious celebration"
Assyrians are literally known as the cruelest and brutal people in...history.
They are up there with Mongols, Vikings and Vlad the Impaler
That's a very diplomatic answer, thx m7. I'd like you to know that it was only a political decision of our leftist postgommie government and a typical Pole was against it.
When I was young the history books said he was a bad man that was the cause of death of many people in the iraq-iran war.
Post 2003, many books that were distributed telling how a good guy he was.
Internet access isn't an issue, we even have 3G.
The only problem all those services is monopolized by the government families.
Baghdad is a city after all.
To see it through.
>When was the worst time for you?
Caught up in two explosions, shell to the knee, and a glass shard to the lung.
>Any stories to share about hairy situations or near misses?
I got threatened multiple times, had AK47 put against my head.
Got caught by death squads.
Who do iraqians blame for current state? It would be good if you could split % among Americans, zhe Jews, politicians etc..
Also do you think removing kebab Hussein was good in long term .. Looking at 2030 or so?
Depends on the "civility"and who's telling them to say what.
Currently shia blames sunni, sunni blames shia, kurds blames arab and ISIS, arab blames kurds and ISIS.
Saudi blames Iran and Iran blames Saudi.
Basically proxy war, and the innocents are caught in the crossfire.
1. not much
3.maybe, just to see what he'll do.
Yes except it's Palestine's anthem.
And after many years of repeating the old anthem over and over it kinda grew on me.
The new one is easy to memorize at least.
>have you ever considered moving out of the country?
You know that saying what doesn't kill you makes you stronger?
I can assure you it's a complete lie.
>free and fair in Iraq?
Nope, fixed mostly
Some election centers were closed on the day of election
>W Bush is the devil?
No, they regard him as a dog
It's very demeaning thing, hence the shoe throw
They call him "كواد" which means Pimp? I think is the best word to translate it to, not sure how to convey the meaning though
As I said I was young back then didn't know about grown up stuff
But I can tell things were better
Never met a Jew in my life inside Iraq, I remember my grandmother telling me how she used to drink tea with her neighbors when she was little girl
In school the books said the Jews=Zionist and they're evil, you know mass brain washing stuff
Baghdad,Basra and Mousel
Depends, on your taste, on how a women take good care of herself.
And other stuff, but yeah they're attractive.
He fled to joirdan
Now if you'll excuse me it's over 3 am here and I need to get some sleep
Are you looking forward to being thrown off a building?
How is Iraq compared to its neighbours in terms of development t.b.h.
>Assyria, a major Mesopotamian East Semitic kingdom and empire of the Ancient Near East, existed as an independent state for from perhaps as early as the 25th century BC
>25th century BC
the only difference between an american girl and an iraqi girl is that american girls sleep around more often. theyre both narcissistic, bratty and just all-around irritating shits. agree or disagree?
