Thanks, good post. I would like to add one point.

The Iraqi economy has changed from a socialist system with guaranteed food, free healthcare, free education and pensions to a neoliberal anarchic capitalism.
For may Iraqis this must have been and still be a the biggest shock of all.

Somehow this is never mentioned but just imagine how this must have changed life for many, many people in Iraq.

There are already reports about food shortages and undernurishment. When the big Iraqi famine will start late this year it will be a new push for the insurgency.
