    To anyone who has lived in Iraq, or who has family who've lived in Iraq: would you/they rather Iraq as it is now or pre-2003?
    Hi bbz. Haven't asked them recently, but they used to say they were/felt safer before the invasion.

    No..Half middle eastern half russian. Please dont say I dont have a chance because of my nationality, I've heard/seen that most arabs like to stick to their own nationalities (Esp because of family and stuff). Ekh!

    No, they're Armenian so they're Christians. They felt safer then; it's pretty much open season on Christians at the moment.

    <3

    How are things with you bro?

    I am sure they have their reasons but I wouldn't be the right person to talk on behalf of them.

    Nah, was just interested in reading further articles you may have posted.

    It is, aye. And it is rather unfortunate that a group of Islamofascist thugs, hell-bent upon bringing Iraq to its knees and establishing a state similar to Saddam's are wreaking havoc in a country which has suffered for the last 30 years.

    Would you rather an Iraq under Saddam's fascist jackboot or a chance at democracy?

    Things are good, man. Uni's going great and my 2011 app's finally receiving some feedback. How's medicine treating you?

    I haven't since I've been at uni, naw. However, I might continue to write again. We'll see.

    Well obviously democracy is the ideal, but I'm more immediately concerned with my family being safe.

    I would also say pre....and I say that as a kurd...

    simply as things were better with saddam, the decadence and stupid excesses of now were not there, the people were better, kinder to their "fellow man" if you will, and not only that, but ALL of iraq has become so much more dangerous, even though you won't hear that about the north....it geniunely is much more dangerous

    its a case of better the devil you know, and the fact that with him, many of todays problems would not exist

    I would disagree with you there....

    democracy in the middle east never really works...and never will

    1. the people are not inclined towards it, our culture etc. makes us prefer a strong, single leader rather than democratic parliament..

    2. in democracies in the middle east, those in power simply reward their friends and family with power, money, wealth etc, are stupidly corrupt and care little about their country once they are in the halls of power...eg. iraq...tallibani has pretty much installed his entire family into all the critical posts, given them acres of land etc., whereas things for the people have become much much worse....even in the kurdish regions up north

    3. when a middle eastern country is thrust into democracy, they will pick up all the decadence from western society and little else, as can be seen in the hordes of iraqi thugs that simply wouldn't have existed before

    there is more, but I have coursework to write

    I mean the concept of democracy is generally an ideal, I didn't mean I necessarily think it would work :p:
