I feel like we're going to be seeing a lot of archaeological discoveries coming out of Iraq now that Saddam Hussein is out of power. hopefully it'll become more available for scientists to study. there's a ton of stuff yet to be found there, I'm sure. after all, Iraq was also the home of the Sumerians, believed to be the first true civilization.
