New Maps of Iraq and the Mideast Emerge in 2014

Maps depend on accurate data. And data which changes every 12 hours can be a problem for map makers. The following maps, which have been gleaned from diverse sources over the past few days, seem to show discrepancies in the amount of territory now claimed by the Sunni terror group ISIS, which is understandable. Regarding Iraq Prime Minister Maliki, only rarely in human history has the leader of a nation been so unpopular and ineffective that his own people have assisted in dissolving national boundaries and re-drawing the map of the nation where they were born. History is being made and history in the Mideast is being re-written during the summer of 2014.

New maps of the region we all refer to as  “Iraq” are changing by the day. This page will be updated frequently as new map data is added.
