Now of course, X years from now when everything has stabilized, will their government repeal these rules and delete the database? It's not really relevant since most likely they will have been overthrown by the insurgents or the US again.
see Islam for what it is
It's the same thing every other religion is. A bunch of stories and directives designed to provide justification for a particular way of life.

A month and a serious death toll, that does indeed suck. I'd wonder why they didn't truck in a pile of the container sized generators or a similar disaster plan as done by utilities after hurricanes.
Actually they did. Even moreso, citizens who had their power restored early then donated or lent their own generators to areas that needed them. I actually recall a at least one person being upset because their generator was never returned. Also while they say the 25 deaths were "primarily" hyptothermia, some of the deaths were caused by CO/CO2 poisoning and fires because people brought their barbeques inside to heat the home.
