Graduates of Mosul University Threaten Demonstrations
Graduates with higher degrees from Mosul University have threatened to hold demonstrations against the US if they are not soon given jobs commensurate with their level of education. (al-Sharq al-Awsat). Unemployment is incredibly high in Iraq. The US inability to provide many jobs so far is making many Iraqis restless. The US may not respect academics, but it should recognize that getting a bunch of Ph.D.s angry at it is not a good idea.
