Falcons on the Floor - map from Fallujah to Ramadi

One easy mistake to make about Iraq is to assume it's nearly all infertile desert. As you can see from this satellite map, land surrounding the Euphrates is lush and verdant - it's an area that many Iraqis choose to live by. Animals of all kinda populate the waters. You can find Iraqi children diving in to escape the summer heat. Even I sometimes forget that this beautiful land was the cradle of civilization.
