A New York Times Report On Fractured Lands: How The Arab World Came Apart

From the outset of the disastrous invasion of Iraq in 2003, it was obvious that the consequences of this fool’s errand would be catastrophic to the greater Middle East.    
Thirteen years later, the extent of the catastrophe that George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld visited on a region that already was the most volatile on earth is incalculably immense, and the rise of ISIS and the global refugee crisis are only the most visible consequences.  
The New York Times Magazine has devoted an entire issue to the story, the product of 18 months of reporting by Scott Anderson with chilling photographs by Paolo Pellegrin of Magnum Photos.  
You owe it to yourself to take the time to read it.
