The Mouse, the KIA, and Conspiracy Theories

"by Hussein Al-Kaabi

In Iraqi popular slang, the faara is commonly known as the female noun of the faar, which means “mouse” in English. In proper classical Arabic, it is pronounced with a spoken apostrophe.

The fa'ra is a rodent many Iraqi families used to suffer from in the past. These days, however, the interim government seems to have succeeded in eradicating the threat of rodents simply by emptying the cellars of Iraqi homes of the flour, sugar, fat, and legumes that made up our monthly rations in the days of the sanctions."
