Permissible Arms

Water, land, life.

Posted in iraq by Karaka on 28 August 2009

As the Guardian reported Wednesday, the southern city of Nasiriyah is experiencing massive water shortage.

A water shortage described as the most critical since the earliest days of Iraq’s civilisation is threatening to leave up to 2 million people in the south of the country without electricity and almost as many without drinking water.

And of course, without water, one can’t sustain a livelihood, which means that several hundreds of thousands of Iraqis are moving elsewhere. I’m sure there will be no implications from that at all.

I don’t really have commentary. It just needed to be posted further so that the knowledge is disseminated.
