Iraq Will Take Decades to Recover

Read "A Dismal Picture of Life in Iraq: Nearly a Third of Population Needs Emergency Aid, Report Says" by Megan Greenwell, The Washington Post, July 31, 2007.

Accompanying this article in the print edition of the paper there is a set of charts that include the information that:
  • 40 percent of professionals in Iraq before the war have left the country, and
  • 92 percent of children in Iraq have "learning problems mostly due to the climate of fear."
