Good News from Iraq!!!

















It seems that the citizens of Iraq have gone from an ungodly worse than third-world poor, to just plain third-world poor in a mere three years. Yippy! How great it must be to live in Iraq!

You see, their economy has grown 50% since we invaded in march of 2003. No longer is the average Iraqi earning $500 per year, today, he's earning $1200! Damn they've got it good over there. OK, I know what your thinking..."but Elmo, in 1980 that average was $4200." Naysayers! The glass is always half empty with you guys. Always focusing on civil war and babies dying. 50% people, 50%...focus on that and it's easy to see we are winning!

Pride is a bitch, ain't it...

I don't know what anyone is complaining about over there.

I'm thinking about relocating.

(The cowboys still suck. Perhaps we should wager over a meeting between our two beloved football teams.)

First gulf war really hurt Iraq, so did sanctions. It's very sad. We tried to hurt Saddam financially but Oil for food really screwed that up.

You know what they say... 20/20..etc.

nolff,

We could have a 2 for 1 sale.

Bush & Dick could both be gone, if Congress was willing to do its duty and stop the CYA game.

Cabe: "You know what they say... 20/20..etc."

well, that in your case 20/20 refers to hindsight. In our case, it refers to foresight when we started shredding the lies back in 2002.
