Threats, Killings---Young Iraqis, Gays

From The New York Times:

Threats and Killings Striking Fear Among Young Iraqis, Including Gays

A recent spate of killings and intimidation aimed at gay Iraqis and teenagers dressed in brash Western fashions is sending waves of fear through Iraq’s secular circles.

idk... life is cheap over there, i guess. They hate our culture cuz it threatens their way of life?

or perhaps it is all about power.

People are suspicious of anything different... as Jimm says, anything that might threaten the status quo. People are soooooo pathetically insecure!


Just started to realize that when
the government in Iraq goes after
them, they have nothing but to hide
and be safe. We have had much of
the same sick people in this country. I just read a blog "Coyote Tales" and find the
many deaths that gays have encountered in th USA. Hard to believe or think it will ever stop.
