Shattered Windows

We received a word few days ago from my uncle and neighbours in Baghdad that the windows of our house in Baghdad broke. This has happened before in previous wars, so we weren't surprised; however, we were curious as to what had happened.

We knew that no one was injured, so we weren't worried. In our house live members of the family that worked for us for over 30 years; people that we consider family. So we called and talked to different people to get the full picture, make sure everybody was OK and see what we can do or advice.

Apparently, it wasn't only the windows, but the main wooden door broke as well. A mortar shell had fell in front of the house. Thank god that no one was hurt. Thank god that kids weren't playing in the street, and no one was walking by or driving by.

It's a quite neighbourhood! How low can these low life terrorist and their low life masters and their low life supporters can be? Wake up people, you are digging your own graves; and you are bringing nothing but shame to yourselves, your families and your people. You are simply a disgrace, and I am ashamed that you call yourselves "Iraqis".

I'm glad nobody was harmed.

These people have no nationaly or religion. They're the lowest of our humanity.

thank God they're ok
but God i hate those horrible phonecalls.. we experienced them 3 times in the space of 8 months once in ramadan cos' a suicide bastard blew himself up at a restaurant a street away from my grandmothers house cos' "kaffir" police offers frequented that area to break their fast (the irony of it all), and thankfully only shaterring windows, another time cos some "resistance warrior" blew up the car of one of their neighbours cos he worked as a translator and that one time where attacks happened simultaneously in all 3 districts of baghdad where my mums side of the family were either shopping or visiting friends and in irbil... but i guess thats not personal.
but thankfully they have been ok everytime, just gives u a breif glimpse of the horror those poor families who've lost loved ones must feel
