The Sunnis and Shia are going ape crazy. This could be the big civil war we’ve been hoping wouldn’t happen.
Luckily, the media seems to be hyping things a bit too much. I spent a good two hours flying over the capital the day after the Golden Mosque was destroyed.
Everything seemed normal from the air, but the way the news read, the whole city was erupting in mass riots like some New Orleans repeat.
Kids were playing at schools, cars were jammed into the normal traffic pile-ups, markets were open. Things seemed relatively normal.
We’ll have to see if the sporadic sectarian violence continues. If civil war does break out, well…
God help us.
