Euphrates-Tigris Basin[edit]

It seems to me that there should at least be a redirect for Euphrates-Tigris Basin or Tigris-Euphrates Basin. Would it redirect here or here? (A nice and speedy answer would be terrific, since I'm doing a CLEP exam in a week, and need to know about stuff like this! I love this website and about the Euphrates-Tigris River. some people call me a nerd but I'm just educated. Italic text'Bold text;)--ViolinGirl 15:19, 23 January 2006 (UTC)

"crime?"[edit]

"It also faced one of the massive economic-environmental crimes in modern history: the destruction of Iraq's wetlands."

I'm not sure that an opiniated word like "crime" should be mentioned here. Many other wetlands have been drained in the past in several places in the world. It is a destruction of wetland, but a label "crime" shows some bias - possibly not the best place to put in an encyclopedia?

Its not just the marsh[edit]

The person who wrote this seems to be obsessed with the marshes in the lower region of the Tigris Euphrates river system, and its unique political and ecological issues. This river system is thousands of kilometres long and hundreds of kilometres wide. It isn't just the marshes near Basra. A more comprehensive view of the river system and its drainage basin is needed.Eregli bob (talk) 08:25, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
