Ignorant American

I was reading a WSJ story today and was stunned to learn that Afghanistan has a larger population than Iraq. (It's 31.9 million compared to Iraq's 27.5 million.)

Umm, does this shock anybody else? I guess I kinda pictured Afghanistan as a few dozen goatherds and opium growers. And Taliban.

  1. I'm not shocked, but I think if I had been asked which country had the largest population, I would have guessed Iraq.

    I still think of Afghanistan as opium agrarian, but I think of Iraq as sandy, even though I know the south can be swampy.

    Luck for me, I've known that for a long time. I also know that Iran's population is twice as large as Iraq's.
