Riverbend’s Farewell: Iraq Ten Years After It Was Invaded, Occupied, And Plundered
Posted by Phoenix Woman on April 14, 2013
I’d wondered what happened to Riverbend after October of 2007, when she was writing from what was then calm and peaceful Damascus. Now we know, as she has re-opened her long-dormant blog to write what is probably her farewell:
And what happened to Riverbend and my family? I eventually moved from Syria. I moved before the heavy fighting, before it got ugly. That’s how fortunate I was. I moved to another country nearby, stayed almost a year, and then made another move to a third Arab country with the hope that, this time, it’ll stick until… Until when? Even the pessimists aren’t sure anymore. When will things improve? When will be able to live normally? How long will it take?
For those of you who are disappointed reality has reared its ugly head again, go to Fox News, I’m sure they have a reportage that will soothe your conscience.
Go there, read the whole thing, and then share it with someone who still thinks invading Iraq was a good idea.
