Middle East in turmoil 10 years after Iraq invasion that officials said would bring peace

Ten years later, the era that the U.S.-led invasion ushered in looks anything but simple. After tens of thousands of deaths, not just of Americans, but also of Iraqis – many, if not most, at the hands of other Iraqis – that country is still in turmoil. American troops are gone and a democratically elected government rules. But bombings and massacres continue, and the country remains mired in sectarian feuding. Elsewhere, conflict reigns – in some cases, coincidentally, with anniversaries that fall also around this weekend.
