Obama’s Best Held Secret Investment: Iraq’s City of the Dead
After President Obama’s pullout from Iraq, the fastest money making trend now in Iraq, besides the total tag of one billion worth of 2,300 Humvees that were snatched by ISIS in Mosul alone, is not gold, silver or oil, but real estate plots in the Valley of Peace. The plots, thanks to Obama’s pre-mature pull out of Iraq, have risen dramatically from $500 to $3000. Had you been invested in a plot in Najaf’s Valley of Peace in 2007, your investment would have increased 600%. But the gravy train is still awaiting more investors since $3000 is nothing considering the rising demand.
Here, see in the photo below what you would be investing in. What seems to look like homes studding as far as your eye can see, are not really homes, but an entire city in Iraq called The City of the Dead.
Lately it had to dramatically be expanded to fit the daily casualties in Iraq making this grave site the largest and most occupied graveyard in the world and the best investment opportunity in Iraq after the U.S. pulled out.

The cemetery, which stretches off into the horizon, is a kind of map to Iraq’s history, at least that of its majority Shiites.

So in Iraq, what Obama’s policies did, and besides the armored vehicles that were snatched, there are lives that are continually being snuffed out and it happens on daily basis, a phenomenon which is a hush-hush by Iraqi Government, as it is by the Obama Administration, where no one wants to reveal that all what Obama contributed for Iraq is to jack up the prices of grave plots.
The secrets and daily killings is rarely shared in western media circles. Today, throughout all Iraqi cities walls can be seen covered with black banners from Sunni terrorist attacks against civilians which increase in ferocity, while Shiite Iraqi militias, whom Obama supports to combat ISIS, commit similar atrocities against Sunnis that are just as ugly as Isis’s.
Burial plots, Humvees and ISIS, had these been stock picks, they would been the best investment opportunities in Iraq today. After all, ISIS so far seized nearly half of Iraq (40%), imposing a gloomy, fear-filled atmosphere throughout the region and even including the graves, there is no end in sight. Besides Isis cake-walk land grabs, Iraq has become the biggest indirect American weapons supplier of ISIS, said Masrour Barzani, citing the heavy weapons, vehicles and ammunition the extremist group seized from the Iraqi Army in Mosul and Ramadi.
Iraqi citizen Saadoun al-Fatlawi, a retiree who worked in the Ministry of Commerce, paid $500 for a cemetery plot in 2007 that can accommodate about six bodies. To his surprise, however, when he wanted to buy an adjacent plot for his brother who was just killed, the price had exponentially increased dramatically to about $3,000 per gravesite.
In the city of Najaf in southern Iraq the constant flow of coffins where graves workers say they average 60 coffins per day which arrive for Iraqi shiites killed by ISIS. The Iraqi government keeps a tight lid on the number of deaths in the fighting with ISIS, but the cemetery City of the Dead is also called Valley of Peace in Najaf and is now the largest cemetery in the world where Iraqi Shiites receives scores of bodies daily.

The graves in the Valley of Peace (City of the Dead) stretch for up to 10km along the valley and is the only cemetery in the world where the process of burial is still continuing today since more than 1,400 years making it one of the strongest contender for the title of the largest graveyard on earth.
In that massive graveyard, there are the dead from the eight-year war with Iran, and those who perished in during the American occupation of Iraq, and then there are the victims of the bloody conflicts and sectarian violence that followed the invasion. The daily influx of bodies comes mostly from the Shiite militia Badr Forces, The League of the Righteous, and the Peace Brigades of Moqtada al-Sadr whose record for the deaths is numbered separately.
The workers say the cemetery washing rooms, where most of the bodies go to be prepared for burial said that the death toll is much higher.
One cemetery official, named Fadel al-Zubaidi was asked on the current bodies he is preparing in one day, he replied: “between the four main washing centers, there are about 40 to 60 people come from Tikrit alone,” adding that most of them Shiites or members of the Shiite militias who come to fight despite superficial knowledge of military matters of war coming in as volunteers seeking martyrdom.
