One more bloody day in Iraq. One more day of wailing and tears. More kids joined the very long list of orphans. More families lost their sponsors and joined the world of poverty.
Over sixty innocent people were killed by successive explosions by car bombs and suicide bombers in Baghdad and Nasiriyha a province in south Iraq Thursday morning. The explosions didn't target the (occupation forces) as those who used to claim they fight to liberate Iraq because these forces left the country. Moreover, the explosions didn't target any kind of security forces. They purely targeted civilians. In Baghdad, the explosions targeted daily laborer in Kathemiyah neighborhood in northwest Baghdad and Sadr city in the eastern side of the capital while the suicide bomber in Nasiriyah province targeted Shiite pilgrims who were commemorating the martyrdom of Imam Hussein. The only fault of the killed and wounded people was being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
The explosions are clear reflection of the strained political situation and the continuous fight between the political parties over power which is ongoing for over eight years and doesn't seem to end soon.
As an Iraqi citizen, I wouldn't really care about our politicians and their fight because I never felt for a moment that any of them represents me or any regular people but the only thing that pushes me to care is the fuel of this fight. Since the political fight ignited between the Iraqi politicians, poor Iraqis were always the fuel that inflames it. Hundreds of thousands were killed or missed since 2003 and God knows when the bath of blood would stop in my bleeding country. Prayers of mothers, fathers and sons couldn't stop the blood shedding because their political brothers always pray for more blood for political gains since fuel is always available and cheap as they believe.
