    Before the Liberation of Iraq and establishment of democracy, Saddam's GDP per capita in 2003 was $741.
    In 2010 it was $2,564. A 246% growth rate.

    The International Monetary Fund forecasts Iraq's economy will grow 11.1% this year to about $144 billion.

    Iraq's economy shows signs of growth

    Iraqi officials and experts said the country's economy is witnessing high growth rates and called for using increased oil revenues to boost the country's economic sectors.

    "The Iraqi economy entered into a phase of escalating growth," Iraqi government economic advisor Abdul Hussein al-Anbaki told Mawtani.

    The country's gross national product (GNP) has increased "as a result of a growth in the domestic product, particularly in the oil sector", he said, adding that oil production capacity is currently about 3.2 million barrels a day.

    SO what do you think Iraq's economy would be like under Saddam?
    How many terrorist attacks would have been launched from Iraq?

    So instead of being gassed by their own government, some Iraqi's are enjoying increased wages... Such a nice byproduct of what some called an unjust war.
