Margaret Griffis, a journalist who has been covering casualty numbers in Iraq since 2006 for Antiwar.com, has published these recent headlines that give one an idea of how life is in today's Iraq - "Mass Executions Terrorize Mosul; 141 Killed in Iraq" -
"132 Killed across Iraq as Airstrikes Continue" - "At Least 4,693 Killed across Iraq in July" "154 Killed in Iraq, including Dozens of Displaced Children" - "Mass Grave Unearthed in Mosul; 194 Killed across Iraq"

I don't think that the US, and the other major players, are in full control of events, and what the U.S. wants might turn out to be its own downfall
