Baghdad has fewer electricity than under Saddam

October 10, 2007


As was previously reported the Iraqi capital has very little drinking water during the sweltering summer months and now YAHOO reported a staggering lack of electricity in Baghdad. While according to a report by the Brookings Institution Baghdad had 16-24 hours of electricity under Saddam now there is a paltry 6 or 7 hours.
Among other indicators include the estimated number of civilians killed, which means there are still 50 people every day getting killed. Each day by day. Let us ponder such horrific conditions: little water, almost no electricity and serious risk of getting killed on every step. Few imagine a working democracy like that.

ESTIMATED NUMBER OF IRAQI CIVILIANS KILLED BY MONTH SINCE NOVEMBER 2006
November 2006 3,500
December 3,000
January 2007 2,800
February 1,800
March 1,750
April 1,750
May 2,200
June 1,600
July 1,900
August 1,600
