Doctors are being terrorized in Iraq. “Abu Mohammed can’t go near a hospital now. The Iraqi bone specialist, 37, has lived in fear since August, when his younger brother, also a doctor, was shot dead one night while walking home from his clinic in Baghdad. Abu Mohammed bought a pistol after that, but he still doesn’t feel safe. Recently he was offered a managerial job at one of the city’s biggest hospitals. He’s scared to accept it. His wife owned a pharmacy; she sold it in November. A week or so ago a doctor friend of theirs was kidnapped from his clinic in the city’s Mansour district””the latest of their friends to vanish.”

    Not sure it’s much different with the lawyer terrorism we experience in the US; I’m terrified of going to work too.

    What a pathetically self-centered comment, 528. It’s so awful it’s not even humorous.
