The History of Iraq
The Land of Blood and Oil
Iraq is an ancient and holy land, home to the cities of Najaf and Karbala, destinations that thousand of Shia pilgrims travel to every year, It was the homeland of prophets like Abraham, Daniel and Yunus.
It was the birthplace of one of the first major human civilisations, the Sumerians, A center of culture, of civilization and trade.
But in recent years Iraq has lost much of its glory and those who call Iraq their home today have suffered unimaginably, It seems that for more than a hundred years the people of Iraq have not been granted any respite from the tyrants.
Tormented by both Arab and Western oppressors the Iraqis have suffered from poverty, war and oppression, Their countries wealth has been looted, first by puppet monarchs, then by the sadist Saddam hussein, the American invaders and their henchmen and eventually ISIS.
It took them several years but eventually they broke the country asunder, They have tortured, they have stolen and defied. And in the end it was the innocent who paid the price, The children, the elderly, the sick.
Many Iraqis began their lives with war more than (40) years ago, And are still at war today, The story of Iraq is a history of pain, of injustice and oppression, A country that has suffered every calamity imaginable and more.
When will it finally be time for its relive? And who will save the nation of Iraq from their dreadful fate?
