The End of the War in Iraq: A Graphic Overview
December 15, 2011
The US has sharply cutback its reporting on the Iraq War since the spring of 2011. There are, however, still a number of sources that help put both the Iraq War and the current state of Iraq into perspective.
The Burke Chair has prepared a graphic overview of the key trends in the war, its cost in dollars and blood, the current state of security in Iraq, and key trends in Iraqi politics, economics, energy exports, and security forces.
