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
Violence in Baghdad 
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
