BAGHDAD — Talk to any young man in Baghdad's mostly Sunni neighborhood of Adhamiya and you'll hear the same story: as tensions have risen over the past month, their friends have fled. 'They've all left!' laughs Ra'id, a recently married 28-year-old man from Adhamiya. Sitting in a bright cafe during the busy nighttime hours of Islam's holy month of Ramadan, he shakes his head. He's now trying to leave, too.
