Baghdad Burning: "Abu Hassen is lawyer who has taken on very few cases since the end of the war. He explained once that the current Iraqi legal system was like a jungle with no rules, a hundred lions, and thousands of hyenas. No one was sure which laws were applicable and which weren't; nothing could be done about corrupt judges and police and it was useless taking on criminal cases because if you won, the murderer/thief/looter's family would surely put you in your grave or the criminal himself could do it personally after he was let out in a few weeks. "

This is a really amazing blog written by a young lady who lives in Baghdad. If you really want a peek at what the Iraqi people are going through, not just the press releases that come out but the real stuff, you should read this blog.
