Interesting chart of Iraq

The NY Times published a chart of Iraq that attempts to visually portray where the trouble spots are. There are several interesting things about the chart.
  • Most of the violence is concentrated in Baghdad
  • Iraqis are suffering by far the most casualties
  • Civilians especially are suffering
  • Large areas of the country are violence-free
Was that the picture you had of Iraq?

UPDATE: Cori Dauber talks about the article that this picture accompanied. If you read what Cori has to say about it, you'll understand why I didn't bother to link to it.
