Description
There is no good war. All war is hideous. munir is a novel about Baghdad under Occupation. It is a story detailing the tragic intersection of intelligence personnel, militants, and Iraqi millennials.

Summary
Majid and Munir are best friends who live in Baghdad under U.S. Occupation. They try their best to live normal lives. Ignacio is a private contractor operating out of the U.S. Embassy. Andrea works for the State Department. Dining together every day, Ignacio and Andrea struggle with their jobs as cogs abetting Occupation. As all parties come to terms with the banes of Empire, they each have choices to make: How do I slow down the war machine? What role can I play? What is the meaning of true responsibility? Meanwhile, a third party from a brutal intelligence organization stalks the Green Zone.

Excerpt
“Ah!” Majid exclaimed, realizing where they were. Spying their favorite nook in the city, Majid approached the cozy concrete to kick back. Munir had noticed this quotidian wonder many years ago when he was working part-time as a delivery boy. One ‘precision’ strike in 1991, courtesy of a 35-year-old B-52 bomber, had taken out a homeless shelter. The blast had also carved the ideal reading nook out of an adjacent wall. The shelter was eventually rebuilt, but the wall remained damaged and crumbling.
