Niente olimpiadi

DHI QAR, #NASIRIYAH - #IRAQ - DECEMBER 2005: A sneaker abandoned inside the #SaddamHussein bunker's area called CMC77, vast 39 km2.

The whole area had more than 210 bunkers, destroyed by Allied bombing in '91 or made diligently explode by the Engineers in 2004, a year which has 42 buildings cleaned. The major problem is that civilian or not, could come across unexploded ordinance: in fact they use to search for metallic material, or reusable bricks looking through the bombarded pillbox debris.

So they form various excavation and research groups, also women, especially them! The intact bricks are stacked in piles to resold them in the city. Risking their lives, the most desirable materials are the metals: each bomb or mortar shot has already been stripped of "crowns" and empty furrows, prove their absence.

In 4 months and only with manual labor, the men of the Army Corps of Engineers have found and destroyed about 55,000 weapons.

Schiaffo morale

quello del rinnovare il dolore

provocato dalla sconfitta

celebrandolo con fastosi giochi.
