Riverbend, the eloquent anonymous blogger from Baghdad, has just posted again. She and her family are leaving Iraq, to where they do not know.
There are moments when the injustice of having to leave your country, simply because an imbecile got it into his head to invade it, is overwhelming. It is unfair that in order to survive and live normally, we have to leave our home and what remains of family and friendsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ And to what?
It’s difficult to decide which is more frightening- car bombs and militias, or having to leave everything you know and love, to some unspecified place for a future where nothing is certain.
May their escape be fast and safe, and may they soon find a place to call home. So too for all refugees of the war started by the imbecile.
