Since the American occupation of Iraq, and the invasion that toppled the late Iraqi President Saddam Hussein in 2003, the Iraqis have not known a happy and peaceful day, and this does not mean that their lives in the previous era were luxurious, but the new era eliminated any hope for advancement, to become the most failed country at the level of the scientist.

Millions of victims in Iraq

This was followed by a series of failures and political disagreements that reflected on the fate and livelihood of the Iraqi people, at a time when the terrorist organization ISIS was supported by well-known parties and countries that were killed with booby traps and explosive devices, slaughter and killing.
