Unfortunately I don't understand that much in politics , in fact (fortunately) ,coz I have too many things are worthier to discuss than politics. But since I'm an Iraqi girl from bone to bone and each drop of my blood is pure Iraqi. I must talk a little bit about politics. I hate it actually , there is nothing can initiate a war but politics. Neither the difference in religion nor in culture can make a reason for a war. Only politics and pure money advantages are the cause . I know there are people don't agree with me in this matter. But nothing is going to change my mind in it ; you say wars at this century are started to improve the local situation in a country or bring DEMOCRACY to it . I don't agree . if that was the matter why Africa is still poor and the children there are starving??!! Why Iraq has been chosen to be the blessed choice of the blessed democracy . no , it's not like that it's not as we see by our naked eyes! We need an electron microscope to see more fine details .. why the last war has been made on Iraq?? Why too many countries have participated in this war??? I agree it wasn't a good situation before it , I admit it. I even didn't have the chance to enjoy my childhood as all children in the world ; you know what world I mean. Since my nails were fragile and soft the war of 1991 started.. and then the siege . no electricity no water… no internet no mobiles no nothing!!! . when I was six as I remember we used not to see the face of electricity(public expression) once every 25 hours per 24 hours. I remember when we moved to our house we didn't have a water for daily usage in the neighborhood for 3 years !!! and the mobiles and internet were luxury. In fact we didn't imagine how a mobile can be !!! in 2003 and during the war , I remember the sound of the alarms of the raids filling my ears . even they were damaged and continued sounding even if there wasn't any American plane!!! For my astonishment , the power during the war time was continuous at least it used to go off for 2 or 3 hours a day . and that is a rare thing for the cursed Mosul at that time ( Baghdad , power in it was continuous all the day although Mosul is the third biggest city in Iraq and it has the imaginary inter-exploited dam .!!!. a city with such big dam must have a sustained source of power and pure water!!! For the sake of God. Some places in Iraq don't have a worthy water to drink!!! , in fact all parts of Iraq . and if we don't use filters housed in our homes. We would be dead by cholera or something.
As a normal girl I have dreams , one of them when I was a child is to learn how to play on guitar or piano . again mosul doesn't have centers specialized for such purposes , and another dream gone with the wind.
Q:What does Mosul have ???
1- Mosul university which I love it so much and I dream to make something special to it coz it has a special place in my heart
2- One park before the last war ( Hadikat al shuhada'a) (martyrs park) . I remember before the war by a nearly a week I visited it with my family to see the flowers and gardens' festival organized in it. And I have never seen it till this minute.
3- A big market ( we call it souq ) and how old people call it (Bazzar).
a- Sarich Khan
b- Bab al sari
c- Bad al toob
d- Bab al baidh( gate of eggs ):D and others
e- Al dwasa
Ancient places( too public) , and moslawis can't live without them. I rarely visit these places
f- Majmoua'a al thqafia
g- Al zuhur
Modern places usually full of youth and young people, contain internet cafes , clothes shops, electronics shops(which I love to visit) and finally home delivery or however they call it (every day supply) and of course restaurants
4- After war two parks built near our house and I have never visited them till now.
5- Houses. Mosul is full of houses . if you visit the cities of the north of Iraq nowadays you will certainly see the difference . Mosul needs a very careful care to its purity and purgation of pollution . maybe I would be a good municipality administrator :D:D. sometimes my heart 's beats accelerate when I see too many dirties in some parts of Mosul.
6- Schools which need a lot of care and sufficient supply of everything WORTHY for students. Curriculums MUST be improved !
7- Health centers and clinics , when I visit some of them I really feel disgusted. Hospitals need MORE care for the sake of God!!!!
8- Hotels (Nineveh palace , Oprahwi , Mosul hotel and others which are nearly abandoned .
Although those might make you feel hopeless that the things will change for better in Iraq but I believe there is a generation will make a difference in Iraq , who knows?! what is the time for the evolution of this generation !!!
