Kids living among corpses & unexploded bombs

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Thousands of children and their families are forced to live in badly damaged houses in abandoned areas with unexploded bombs, dead bodies and rubble, after the sudden closure of several camps for displaced people in Iraq, Save the Children has witnessed.

Save the Children teams spoke to parents who had been forced to leave the camps. They told harrowing accounts of finding unexploded bombs and corpses in buildings and under rubble in the areas they now reside in. Families are in urgent need of basic services such as electricity, clean and safe drinking water, food and transport.

It appears that the Iraqi government want people to return to their homes since fleeing ISIS, hence the closure of the camps. 

However, it appears that many are returning to bombed out ruins. 

Another triumph for the Caliphate :(

And the Shia dominated Iraqi government. The reason a lot of them are returning to ruins is because the Shia government won't spend money to rebuild the Sunni areas that suffered most under ISIS.

Without some drastic policy change, by Iraq, the west and Iran, I expect another serious extremist uprising within the next decade.

Decade ? 

More like a month or two.

Not on ISIS' scale. People's memories aren't that short.

Hmmm... under normal circumstances, perhaps. But with Iran stirring the pot ?

Iran is a restraining factor in the short term. Their militias keep the Sunni population down but fear is only a short term solution.

Didnt keep them down when ISIS first rose up and they wont keep down the next uprising either.  As long as the Shia controlled Iraqi government continues to disenfranchise and seek retribution on the Sunni population violent uprisings will be constant especially since now main Sunni actors will view Iraq as a way to bleed Iranian resources.
