Iraq

Iraq has had a rough history. It was occupied by Great Britain after World War I, and gained independence in 1932. However, after violent leader Saddam Hussein took over, the United States decided to invade Iraq in 2003. In 2005, Iraqis put through a new Constitution and were an independent state once again.

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina only recently declared independence from Yugoslavia in 1992. Even after this, there was still many years of war until a peaceful balance was found.
