Maysan Province (Arabic: ميسان Maysān‎) (or Maysan Governorate) is a province in southeastern Iraq, bordering Iran. The provincial capital, located beside the Tigris, is Amarah. The second settlement is Majar Al-Kabir. Prior to 1976 the province was known as Amara Province.

Maysan is a majority Shia province. Its population suffered greatly during the Iran–Iraq War, during which it was a major battlefield, and subsequently post the 1991 Shia Uprising. The province is traditionally home to many Marsh Arabs.

its OK. we can just use the english translation "the tit hospital".

it is the only solution to the mass retardation of Iraqi society that glorifies such "people" whilst ignoring true heroes, patriots and scientists / engineers of our nation.

people who glorify or protect the glorification of RETARDATION should be made aware of what they are doing otherwise they won't realise what they're doing.

Guys relax you do exaggerate by generalising. I assume it depend on the individuals education and way of thinking rather than being iraqi living in iraq....
