Rivers Run Dry

Almost as soon as the bombs began to rain down on Baghdad, families began their exodus from Iraq in anticipation of the civil war that many expected would come to pass. As the occupation entered it's fifth year, that number has reached into the millions.

Riverbend, an anonymous female Iraqi blogger who has been opining about the war and occupation since the beginning, has now decided to follow in the footstep of so many others. I can only imagine what it must be like to have to pick and choose what to leave behind. Not only are there the material things which hold so many cherished memories but also the loved ones who remain there, unable to make the journey to safer locales.

I am truly ashamed of what my country has done. And all because of the hubris and arrogance of one man.
