Lets' Go Mountaineers

With the influence of Sunni and Al Qaeda pressing down from the North and West and Shia and Jaish Al Mahdi rising from the South and East, the city of Iskandariyah straddles the fault line of sectarian violence. The epicenter of sectarian tremors in the area is the Hateen Apartment complex, a neighborhood consisting of more than 25,000 Shiite and Sunni Muslims.

SIGNS of western influence are beginning to pop up throughout the complex, replacing Al Qaeda and Jaish Al Mahdi propaganda. One of many indicators that the violence and oppression is coming to an end is having the freedom to display things like your favorite sports teams.
