M Weeping eras, supercharged brothers: in a Baghdad hospital, families in distress go from bed to bed in an attempt to recognize a near after the bloodiest attack in years on Thursday in the Iraqi capital.

In the Cheikh Zayyed hospital, less than three kilometers from Tayaran Square where two suicide bombers blew themselves up in the morning, six lifeless bodies were brought in and 13 wounded were trying to survive despite the violence of the shock.

A few hours ago, all of them were in the busy square in the center of the capital with ten million inhabitants - the meeting place for day laborers waiting for an employer to join a site or other work -, or strolling on the second-hand clothing market.

"The whole of society was complicit," Prime Minister Micheal Martin summed up on the occasion of the publication after five years of investigation of the 3,000-page report.

"My brother is married, he has two children and this morning he went out to bring back something to feed them. What will become of his children now?", Says Abbas Sami, 25, without news of his brother since the explosion which left at least 32 dead and more than a hundred injured.

At al-Kindi hospital, also a few kilometers from the site of the attack, nurses in blue coats push a stretcher in the middle of running families.

A little further, Health Minister Hassan al-Tamimi leans over a man on a ventilator who is fighting for his life under a blanket that barely lifts himself up.

Mazen al-Saadi, he is a miracle. He survived the explosion on Tayaran which he was pacing with a friend.

The latter "moved away a few meters, then, with the blast of the explosion, I have not seen him ... until now", laments the 34-year-old Iraqi who comes from see the corpse of his friend at the Cheikh Zayyed hospital.

With the legislative elections promised in June by a government brought to power after an unprecedented revolt, but taken by the throat financially and without political or popular support, "we expected a return of the attacks", continues the man.

But while the political soap opera continues to suggest a postponement or cancellation of the election, "political conflicts are back and we could go back to the past", at the time when religious and political conflicts plunged the country in the civil war from 2006 to 2010.

The results of the attacks of Thursday are without comparison with the worst hours of the jihadist attacks coordinated in the four corners of Baghdad. Today we are far from the 15 car bombs per day or attacks killing more than 300 people, but Baghdadis had become accustomed to stability, forgetting the dark years of Al-Qaeda and then of the Islamic State (IS) group.

The city of Baghdad suffered significant damage during the Iraq War. The Iraq War started with a US-led invasion on 20 March 2003, causing much damage to the capital city, Baghdad . The war and collateral damage continued for years .

But Thursday, in the looks, the fear is the same. And with the experience of the past, all say they have no illusions.

"Impossible to live here"

"Where is the information? How jihadists can get to the heart of Baghdad while the government says it won against IS?", Loses Abu Zayneb who lost his brother.

On condition of anonymity, an intelligence official himself recognizes a breach.

"We were on alert for the end of the year celebrations, we expected attacks and in the end nothing happened, we let our guard down," he confessed to AFP.

All this, says Abu Zayneb, like the 40 million other Iraqis regularly, it is the fault of the corruption which eats away at all the institutions even those supposed to ensure the security of all.

"Iraq has been devoured by corruption and conflicts between politicians," accuses this 40-year-old Iraqi.

Around him, families tell of having toured several hospitals in vain.

"Their phones are not responding and we have absolutely no idea what happened to them," says a man.

"There was already poverty, now the explosions are back. The respite never lasts long", laments Abbas Sami.

"It's impossible to live in this country!"
