Modern-day Iraq lies in the Fertile Crescent of Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization where mankind flourished as it developed seed cultivation and its first farming techniques - all nourished by the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.
Generations of people have tilled the soil there since 8,000 BC, developing the seeds that grew into the many types of wheat seen around the world today.
But centuries of cultivation turned to dust in 2003, when former President George W. Bush invaded the country, planting seeds of war that would be sown for years to come.
Unfortunately, the United States took more than figurative seeds to Iraq.
While about two million civilians were killed as a result of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the war is still ingrained in the U.S. psyche as a humanitarian effort to save the Iraqi people from a brutal dictator.
But what it actually did was pave the way for foreign corporations to descend upon the country and turn a profit on the chaos.

G-d created the Garden of Eden, but the US destroyed it. Our "way of life" is a death sentence not only for Iraq, but for this entire planet. Mr. Kissinger should be on trial for multiple genocides, but instead he thrives. Why is that?
By the way, we're doing more or less the same thing to Libya. Why? To bring the entire world under the US thumb.
Someday soon this will cause widespread famine. And then you will know what the ultimate US goal is - population reduction.
