Another Reason The Iraq War Is Failing

The UN refugee agency (UNHCR) says there has been an "abject denial" around the world of the humanitarian impact of invading Iraq.

The UN faces an enormous task in helping countries such as Jordan and Syria cope with the huge influx of Iraqi refugees, a spokesman said....

Syria says it is home to 1.2m Iraqi refugees, with up to 800,000 in Jordan.
Much of the Iraqi middle class has fled, and much more would like to. You cannot rebuilt a war-shattered nation when the people who would rebuild it are fleeing for their lives.
