We are at it again, folks. Iraq’s elections are today. Following in the footsteps of our previous Map obsessions, here is the latest collection of graphics — but this time, we look at Iraq, and not the US elections. Call it everything you wanted to kn ow about Iraq — its geography, politics, religions, ethnicity, insurgency and violence — but were afraid to ask . . .
Iraq’s Complex Government Structure
Is this any way to run City Hall?
Iraq’s Oil Infrastructure
People love Freedom . . .
Iraq Religous and Ethnic Groups
kinda complex when compared to our mess
Violence: Unfortunately, this has become the most prevalent type of map we’ve come across
175Election Attacks in Iraq
Iraqis voted despite attacks; Now if we can only get Americans to do so . . .
Iraq Attacks by district
attacks per 100,000 persons
Iraq’s Security-challenged Provinces
No, really everything’s going just fine
Iraq Insurgency Map
except for the 100,000 dead civilians
And how could we do this without throwing in a US poll?
US on Bush’s handling of Iraq War
You broke it, you bought it . . .
Come across any others? Please let me know

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
