Of course all Iraq’s situation is not same, some people are rich and most of Iraqi people are poor and Saddam was giving a lot of money for his men all these made big difference between Iraqi people’s situation.
All Iraqi people don’t have same nation and don’t have same belief (religion), Iraqi nations are Arabs, Kurds, Turcomans, Assyrians, Armenians, Syriacs (suryani) and keldanis. The religions in Iraq are Islam, Christianity, yazidi and Sabi’a. All these nationalities and religions led to variety of traditions in Iraq, Baghdad is the capital so you are going to see all kind of Iraqis but most of residents are Arabs Shiaa, most people in south Iraq are Arabs shiaa but there are some Arab Sunnis among Arab shiaa, middle of Iraq is for Arab Sunnis, north of Iraq is for Kurds, Turcomans and others.
Iraq has very rich history in the world starting from Sumerians, Assyrians, Abbasians and etc, these histories has great effect for Iraqi people nature.
Also Iraq has big cities like Baghdad, Mosul and Basra; also Iraq has poor neglected cities and villages but poor cities are more than rich ones.
Of course the story in south will not be like in mid or north, rich Iraqi people don't like to hear about poor Iraqi people.
I wrote this note for who think Iraq has one situation and has one type of people.
I think this small information will help you reading my stories and also you can read true books about Iraq to understand Iraq well.

Hi Alaa,
Many western people know of the ancient history of the cities along the Tigris and Euphrates. Teachers call it the fertile crescent. To have a lineage of great history should help to foster hope for the future.
Our bible contains stories of Babylon and Ninevah and the people who lived there.

I am touched always by your stories of the children of the poor in Iraq, and how the innocent are effected by the struggle.
