All of Iraq is a Haditha

We don’t often get these stats so we should repeat them when we do: 1,773 civilian deaths were reported in Iraq in August, up 7% from July.

We can only assume that these faceless people had families and loved ones and interests and talents and … well, they were pretty much like us, except these people were born in historic Mesopotamia, the area between the Tigris and Euphrates that advanced human civilization so dramatically.

It’s a safe bet that these people were pretty proud of their lands. And why not? Mesopotamia advanced irrigation and farming knowledge and technology, and animal husbandry and it perfected urbanity, people living together in peace and harmony.

But the dead may not have been that sorry to leave today’s Iraq.

All of Iraq is a Haditha.
