Baghdad After the Storm: 2010-2011

BAGHDAD, IRAQ: Aerial of Baghdad with Tigris river and Sheraton and Palestinian Hotels. In the center traffic circle, Firdus Square, is where the famous statute of Sadaam Hussein was pulled down in 2003. The Iraq govt. wants the United States to apologize and pay $1 billion for the damage done to Baghdad not by bombs but by blast walls and Humvees. The city's government issued its demands in a statement on Wednesday that said Baghdad's infrastructure and aesthetics have been seriously damaged by the American military. "The U.S. forces changed this beautiful city to a camp in an ugly and destructive way, which reflected deliberate ignorance and carelessness about the simplest forms of public taste," the statement said.
