Much of our news from Iraq is consumed by bombings of public places, attacks on U.S. and Iraqi patrols, and inter-sectarian violence. These events are bad enough, but consider that 50 Iraqi men were kidnapped, perhaps simply for ransoms, while they waited for buses. How much more mundane can you get? Imagine having to deal with that much insecurity on a daily basis.
