In Biblical times, known as Erech. The name Iraq is a modernized spelling of "Uruk", an ancient city state in ancient Summeria.

After the collapse of the Ottoman (Turkish)empire, Europe carved up international boundaries and in the course of restructuring had created the modern country of "Iraq". Doomed to failure from the start, this artificially-created country was home to many disparate ethnicities and religions. Internal conflict was inevitable.

The rise of the Baath party (and its inevitable fall at the hands of the American-led coalition) was a response to this conflict.

There is no single language spoken in Iraq. Standard Arabic is most commonly used with Kurdish, Turkmen, Assyrian and Farsi spoken by a minority of the population.
"Iraq is considered the birthplace of civilization: Home to first city "Ur" and the birthplace of writing (in the form of clay tablets written in cuneiform.)

Iraq is also the birthplace of many of the ancient middle-eastern civilizations: Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian etc.

IRAQ = OIL = GASOLINE
A country that is literally in the cradle of civilization that happens to sit upon the third largest deposit of oil (fossil fuels) in the world. Further, the oil is very close to the surface of the earth. This means extracting the oil is less costly than anywhere else in the world. Add to this the hydrocarbon laws that are about to be passed by the installed Iraqi government, giving total access to the US and their allies to said fossil fuel and, you have IRAQ. The 51st state of the United States!
IRAQ is a third world country which has oil that the United States desires.
