In Iraq, the water troubles haven't been so terrible since the 70's and 90's. Even the Iraqi's know how important water is. If we can't access water, how can we survive? 80% of the world is covered in water, and although 97% is salt water, if we lose it all, we can't live on Earth. The droughts don't make life any easier and getting a little help from neighboring countries like Turkey and Syria would help Iraq out a lot. This piece was made very well. It had a lot of facts and informational interviews with the Iraqi's, which made the piece interesting. I would suggest some music in the background, however, so listeners will really tune in
