"I came to investigate the American military reports that violence is falling in Baghdad...that the US surge has transformed the city....what I found contradicts all the official reports, Baghdad is a city where one street is at war with the next, where the people are more desperate than I've ever seen them...it has been transformed into a city of walls...[these walls] are the main reason why the casualities have fallen, not because peace is an odd sway."
Ghaith visits two opposite Sunni and Shi'i districts, one of them is my district, al-Adhamiya, the part which he shows used to be a very lively place filled with car auto-shops, only dogs roam it now, what also amazed is the barbed wire and the gridlock put on the stairway over the highway, there were no such things when I was last there in September 2006.
A friend and I tried to discern whether what he meant by the opposite district was al-Qahira or al-Sha'ab, but in the end, we couldn't tell what it was, and couldn't care, because the only place it brought to our memory was quite telling.
Here's another video from that series.
NOTE: The district turned out to be al-Qahira, speaking of al-Qahira, here's a nice story, my aunt used to live next to our house in Adhamiya, they left to Egypt soon after we left to Jordan, my aunt's husband, Abdilhussein [the only Shia member of our family] returned for some family business a few months later, he wouldn't dare go to their Adhamiya house, so he spent his time in al-Qahira district.
