It's the day after one of the bloodiest days in Iraq in months. Nearly 80 people died nationwide on Wednesday. But despite the carnage, Baghdad residents go on with their lives. All too aware that death can come at any moment. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) IRAQI CITIZEN, ADEL, SAYING: "Every day when I leave the house, I tell my wife what to do if I die. We are afraid of going out. What if we do not come back home? What will happen to my wife and children?" Two years after U.S. troops left Iraq, violence is back up. Up to levels of 2006 when tens of thousands were killed. Sometimes al Qaeda-linked militants claim responsibility for attacks. But many explosions are never claimed. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) OWNER OF SHOP SELLING SPARE PARTS, RAID MOHAMMED SAYING: "We are afraid even when we are inside our houses because we do not know the enemy. We do not know who is targeting us. We are not in a war to know who we are fighting." (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) IRAQI CITIZEN, FADHIL AL-NIDAWI, SAYING: "After each attack, people clean the scene, remove rubble and go about their business as usual. People get used to that." The recent bombing campaign seems to be exploiting widespread Sunni resentment at the Shi'ite-led government. But calculations like that are lost on Baghdad's residents. Like people everywhere, they just want to work, relax and send their kids to school knowing -- hoping -- they'll come home safely.
