An Iraqi is a citizen of the Middle East
ern nation of Iraq
, or a member of the ethnic group originating there. Iraqis are often stereotyped in the American media
as either Saddam Hussein
's duped and oppressed subjects, or as co-conspirators in his villainy. In truth, the poorly-understood situation in Iraq is far more complex than that. The recent movie Three Kings
took great pains to explore the suffering, the hopes, the dreams and the problems of the Iraqi people as their lives were interrupted by the Gulf War
Iraqis are overwhelmingly Muslim.
