BAQUBA, May 27 (IPS) – After more than five years of U.S. occupation, the very dreams of the people of Baquba have changed. For a start, they are no longer about the future.
Today, a shower is a dream. Or that the electricity supply continues just that little bit longer.
“These needs are very trivial for people of other countries,” 43-year-old political leader Saad Tahir told IPS. “But in Iraq, people dream more of these things than of some ambition or success.”
