A Bird Flu Death, In Iraq

This may be a bit of a disaster. With the country in it's current state there is little reason to think that Iraq or the US can effectually contain it. One bit of good fortune is this case occurred in the Kurdish north, the most stable area of the country.

If (and when) it moves further south, it will be uncontrollable. The current instability of the nation assures it.

As many as 12 cases may be being treated in Sulaimaniya Iraq.
