civil war in Iraq

the united states has pulled out of Iraq and after only a few days the country is swiftly spinning into a civil war that may last for years. This was reported years ago by people in the know that said Saddam held the country together and when he was removed the country would be in a civil war and a divide country.
This crime can be laid to George Bush's feet. The country was a thriving oil producing country and our government coveted their wealth in oil now they have very little producing wells. They have very little electric, and water the very necessary items of life water and food is also in short supply.
The invasion, occupation and subsequent civil war in Iraq war caused one of the biggest refugees crises in recent history. According to the UN Refugee Agency, there are 1.7 million Iraqi refugees living in Syria and Jordan. There are another 1.5 million Iraqi IDPs. The UN office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs released its regional response plan for Iraqi refugees in January. The appeal called for $367 million to support the refugees. So far, though, only 17.9% or $65 million is funded.

We probably knew this would happen, but if we waited 5 years it would still happen. Sunni and the other group hate each other...what a deal.
