I visited this brick factory in late fall of 2007. The acrid smoke renders the air practically unbreathable. My misfortune was to be there on a windless day. Between near zero visibility and the sulfur filled air, the factory presented a picture that was disturbingly similar to what I had always imagined Hell to look, smell, and feel like. This was rather disturbing for a Soldier based in Baghdad about to assume responsibility for all of the Iraqi Police stations in the province.
