Shock and Awe!
The USAF kicked butt early on. They took out a lot of strategic spots in a lightning, surgical campaign that was designed to destroy the will to resist.
There has been a lot of second guessing about the strategy since May of '04 but there is still no doubt that the bombing campaign did exactly what it was designed to do.Related to:

The Halabja Monument
The monument is only a few years old but is already showing signs of age, likely due to the bright sun beating down on it all the time.
Inside is a collection of art and photos around the perimeter and the real 'memorial' part at the centre with a giant Kurdish flag rising to the top.Related to:

They have very interesting facts about the early Babylonian civilization and the parks are just too beautiful to miss.
Baghdad: The historic...
Baghdad: The historic buildings have been mostly restored or completed. This is a very problematic way of archeology. I was told - and I even absolutely agree - that a restoration that completes of may modifies an existing building should allways done so that a visitor can still see what is original and what is new on the first look!
The two restored buildings in Baghdad that are interesting are the Mustansiriyya and the Caliph's palace.
No matter you like the restoration or not - both buildings are worth a visit.

Yep the old Ziggy. Located just outside the Tallil AB, home of Abe, husband of Ruth, father of Isiaac.
The coolest thing about the Zig is there are sea shells all over the place.
