How do you feel about it when Iraqi troops shoot Americans? How do other Iraqis feel? (not trying to be antagonistic, genuinely curious what the average person on the ground thinks)

For me I would never hurt a fly , so I would never accept the idea of human killing other human , no matter what's you religion are ideas.
No one likes death or killing people , the only ones that they do that are either have reasons for doing that , or under influences , or being pro saddam people

It's good to have a peaceful philosophy in life
How common are drugs in Iraq? We hear a lot on the news about Afghani opium poppies, but I've never heard anything about drug trafficking in Iraq. I just noticed you talking about people being under the influence and that got me curious. It also seems like you'd be a lot closer to the source of the opium poppies and that drugs would provide escape from the rigors of everyday life in a warzone/near-warzone.

Sniffing Glue and Medicine with Hallucination side effects were the main drugs before the war , after that , Cocaine and other drugs started to show up , since there wasn't any police

Are you glad they are there? Would you rather they hang around or that they all packed up and left tomorrow?
Tarazena0 karma2013-01-15 16:07:18 UTC
didn't the army leave the iraq ?
i dont care if they are or they aren't there , they didn't participate in building the iraq nor they will gonna participate , so i dont care.

After your first near-death incident were you thinking, "Legit, that'll never happen again."
What about the second?
Tarazena18 karma2013-01-15 15:15:29 UTC
No , I never thought its going to get worse, till it got worse :)

Very interesting story. Hate to be that guy, but have any proof? You can private message a moderator if needed.
Tarazena4 karma2013-01-15 15:08:04 UTC
Sure , what information would you like to proof to you ?
rabitol4 karma2013-01-15 15:30:12 UTC
Are there any documents proving citizenship in either location you say you're in? Not sure how that works over there. Blank out the sensitive info and post.

Tarazena5 karma2013-01-15 16:36:20 UTC

How long did it take you to recover? Was it rushed?
Tarazena1 karma2013-01-15 16:41:00 UTC
recover from what ? death , it was all rushed , and i was kinda young , still , when i wrote this AMA , it did brought some memories that almost made me cry
americaFya1 karma2013-01-15 15:37:40 UTC
What can we as American citizens do to help Iraqi citizens understand that were not all war mongers, that we know we were wrong, and that we do respect the culture and history of Iraq?
Tarazena1 karma2013-01-15 16:22:49 UTC
nothing , because some people already done that stuff ( i knew organizations that helped poor families to provide shelter and food and other organization helped to treat children with heart diseases
PiKappaFratta1 karma2013-01-15 15:42:21 UTC
I remember hearing about gangs of, well, not even really insurgents, just religious zealots roaming the streets, abducting, murdering, raping, etc. How rampant was this? the US media never really clarified how bad the zealotry was, just told us the broad details of it
Tarazena5 karma2013-01-15 16:31:49 UTC
that stuff starting to appear on november 2005 , when al qayda attacked a center for Shiite pilgrims , after that gangs started to appear. and each faction started to kill each other, depending on your name ( if you Sunni name , the Shiite gangs will execute you , if you have a Shiite name , Sunni gangs will execute you , in the streets , infront of everybody )
baldick1 karma2013-01-15 14:24:10 UTC
This is always confusing to me. There were a couple of wars, right?
Tarazena10 karma2013-01-15 14:30:39 UTC
3 major wars , and 1 or 2 attacks
The first war was from 1980 till 1988 ( iraq- Iran war )
Second war was the gulf war ( started 1991)
3rd war was on 2003

I don't know , just wanted to share my story with the world
dothejstu-1 karma2013-01-15 15:08:04 UTC
Has OP been verified? Or is this just going to continue to be unconfirmed boilerplate anti-war material?
Tarazena3 karma2013-01-15 15:23:59 UTC
How do I do that ? I never done that stuff before.
