The Total Economical Situation Of Iraq Is Bad. The International Embar
The total economical situation of Iraq is bad. The international embargo has dramatic effects, causing hardship for the entire population.

In Todays Modernized World, There Seem To Be Several Luxuries That We
In today's modernized world, there seem to be several luxuries that we can not live without. In a large metropolitan area such as Los Angeles, cars and the gas that fuels the cars are a must. So what would happen when the number one and number two oil companies in the United States decided to merge together? The deal itself would be worth 75.3 billion dollars, making the new Exxon Mobil one of only two major fuel providers along with Royal Dutch/Shell until the merger between British Petroleum
