Mohammad Fadhil of Iraq the Model responds on PJM to the recent London Times poll finding most Iraqis optimistic about their country’s future.
When Arabs or westerners ask me about the situation and I answer that hope remains and that weâ€™re looking forward to a better future most would say â€˜Are you living in this world?â€™ I answer, â€˜Yes, itâ€™s you who live in the parallel world the media built for you with images of only death and destructionâ€™.
If it surprised some of them that a poll found Iraqis optimistic, then Iâ€™m surprised that someone finally bothered to ask Iraqis how they feel…
Just as free birds would never return to the cage, we donâ€™t want to return to the days of the tyrant. Birds do not care that beasts roam outside and would not feel nostalgic for a home or meal mixed with humiliation.
All that a free bird cares about is to spread wings and fly as it pleases.
