When the UN leaves, Baghdad…

When the UN leaves, Baghdad get bombed

From Baghdad Burning, a blog written by a young Iraqi woman in Baghdad

What is particularly disturbing is that the UN is pulling out some of its staff for security reasons… they pulled out a third tonight and others will be leaving in the next few days. Things are getting more and more frightening. My heart sinks every time the UN pulls out because that was how we used to gauge the political situation in the past: the UN is pulling out- we’re getting bombed.
