The wisden institute of analytics UK, found a strange behavioural pattern in war ragged Iraq. Earlier to Americans Gulf war, the Man allways walked with head held high, followed by his wife and lastly the Goat.
This scene after the war has given way to the Woman leading in front with head held low, The man following her with tilted head and the Goat at the end.
Very concerned analysts spoke to some locals and discovered the change. It seems the land was heavily mined by Iraqies fearing attack from american infantry. So the man doesnt want to risk his life anymore and asks his wife to walk in front of him. Alas!
