Iraqis Just Can’t Catch a Break

In many nations a favourite sport will bring people together in a way that little else can. Perhaps the most famous recent example has been India and Pakistan playing cricket against each other. In Iraq, like much of the world, soccer is probably the most popular sport. You might think that a win over South Korea (a side that did extremely well as recently as the ’02 World Cup) might be a cause for Iraqis to set aside their differences peacefully to celebrate. It was not. Sigh.
