The Iraq's humanitarian crisis: Is it not enough reason to rethink a vacation?

50,000 Iraqi's leave their homes every month and the total number of refugees now exceed 2 million. 1.4 million Iraqi's are now in Syria and the Jordan has about 750,000.

I wonder how many domestic refugees they have inside Iraq.

Jordan reports spending over $1 billion/ year just to be able to accommodate the Iraqi refugees in their country. Syria probably spends something close to that amount.

As if everything is well in their country, the parliament pushes through with its one month vacation.

Well, if the host country indeed insists on the vacation, it is probably also good for the foreign military to take a break. If the situation does not bother the Iraqi government, why should the others do?
