The return of the Iraq marshes 

According to Al-Jazeera, Iraq's vast marshes, destroyed by Saddam to reach Shiite fighters hiding there, are now 50% restored. Al-Jaz's article is excellent apart from the usual omission: there would be no restoration of the Middle East's most important wetlands and no return of the "marsh Arabs" to their home of many thousands of years were it not for the United States of America.
