Seeing Iraq win in soccer is one of the most cherished sensations for an Iraqi. To see the team play soccer has become reality and it is a reality many yearn for to remain long lasting in its success. It is the success not to win the cup but to reminiscence the identity of Iraq and what it stood and will continue to stand for as long as there will be something valuable to remember Iraq by. A citizen can only hope that these obsolete feelings for the Iraq will not fade but be regained throughout the Iraqi soccer teams' journey in the Asian Cup. We all are eager to see t the outcome of this huge step
With all the restraints the world has taken against Muslims, the MiddleEast and Iraq as well, it has become such a burden to bear the identity of being Iraqi. For years living in this western country, we had always been recognised as Iraqis by the western community when simultaneously being treated as members of their nation. We Iraqis have turned full of shame after hearing a proposed Iraqi doctor attempting to plan a terrorist attack in UK. Having overviewed this attempt many times since it had happened, one can only re-iterate the mere attacks in Iraq to not be something so absurd but rather a possibility when such Iraqis who have suffered in their country, have aims to destabilize other countries with their own lack of stability. What really is irritating is witnessing other immigrants or refugees who chose to apply for residence in western nations to have a pessimistic view of the country that granted them a new life away from the war and violence. There is no space for people to commit attacks against civilians of the west in the nation that had accepted them. There are so many other innocent victims who wish to have a tiny chance in receiving the same opportunities of starting their life all over again, away from any sort of trouble. Had these criminals realized that they are depriving their own people of rights and chances of moving far away from the troubles of their nation? Had they not realized that their attacks are tarnishing their own reputation, and distancing the opportunities for their own countrymen to reach their goals for survival....Nobody really knows apart from God and those who are responsible for such a crime.
