Before celebrating the recent and favorable data from Iraq keep in mind that the displacement of Iraqs is another piece of data.

The trend indicates that more than one out of every seven Iraqis has been displaced, either inside of Iraq, or as refugees who have fled to the neighboring countries.
Number of Displaced Iraqis Has Soared, Aid Group Says - washingtonpost.com: "The number of internally displaced Iraqis at the end of September represented a 16 percent increase since the end of August, and was more than 40 times higher than March 2006, when sectarian fighting accelerated following the bombing of the Golden Mosque in Sammara, a Shiite shrine, according to the report."
