    So I assume that a FOB (friend of Bush) or a major donor heads up that company...

    What are the Iraqis more likely to believe? Propaganda planted by US interests in their newspapers or the violence and dispair they see out their front door? Seems kinda pointless to print that Democracy is changing Iraq when the people living there see that it's BS, and what they *do* see doesn't exactly speak well for democracy. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot, or in the case of Iraq in the back of the head, execution-style.

    Works here, but we don't see it first hand. And actually, most of us don't fall for it anyway. But yeah, just a waste of more money that could be better used elsewhere. What else is new.
