If anyone had bothered watching the short video in the OP, they'd know a big part of Iraq's problem is water. (lack of)

The cradle of civilization and home of the planets' fifth largest oil reserves, Iraq should be at least as prosperous as most of their neighboring countries, but unfortunately this will never happen. And some of the reasons may not be so obvious.

The rift valley is the cradle of civilisation but Iraq (Persia) had some brilliant scholars.
It's being starved to death by big wealthy countries like America to access cheap oil for the cartels.

Saddam actually had it made as a CIA asset against Iran.....but he tried to get greedy and take Kuwait . ( arguably Iraq territory )

The anthrax wmd's they "couldn't find" 20 years later.... ;);)
We knew exactly where they were and destroyed them in day one of shock and awe.

When the Brits separated Kuwait from Iraq, they denied Iraq a deepwater port.

In the Gulf War their ammo dumps were blown off the face of the earth.

How so. When Iraq didn't exist when they drew the maps after WW1? None of these countries existed as a country til the defeat of the ottomans.

Or it could be the chemical weapons in the air from ammo dumps blown up. Many think it was caused by the Anthrax shot as well. The Sarin monitors were going off on the Humvees according to the Marines who went into Kuwait.

I lived in Kuwait briefly.. and have been to Iraq many times.

The US screwed up in Iraq, much like we have done repreatedly in Iran.

That's an excuse for terrible US foreign policies ? "They would have been screwed up anyway. Let US be the bad guys." Millions of them hate us "for our freedom", now.

Americans haven't paid for our governments failures yet, but it's coming.

Iraq is doing a lot better than it was 5 years ago.

Iraq is doing way better than it was 10 years ago.

I'm curious to see what the future holds for Iraq.
