Long Live Iraqi Resistance to Imperialism, Terrorism, Torture & Prohibition of Smoking in the Name of the WHO Framework Convention for Tobacco Control
Los Angeles Times : Babylon & Beyond. IRAQ: Smokers dismayed by tough anti-smoking legislation
"Persuading people to give up their nicotine habits may be a different matter, however. The militant group Al Qaeda in Iraq tried to ban smoking in areas under its control a few years ago, and it's one reason Sunnis turned against the insurgency."
""I don't think people will obey the law," said Mutlaq, the legislator. "Their problems are bigger than smoking, and the daily risk to their lives is greater than smoking.""
Remember: Tobacco Prohibition in “Free” Iraq. "We want Saddam back", said Ala al-Kanini !
