Breakfast in Iraq

In recent years, breakfast has become a luxury for the Iraqi people. The economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations in 1991 undermined the country's daily food supply. The drastic change in the oil-for-food program that was established in 1995 seems to have caused more controversy than relief. The program ended in 2003 – the same year that Iraq was invaded by US-led alliances. In 2006, the traditional Iraqi breakfast was still rarely mentioned in the war casualties.
