LoL..and he announced this in PARIS? The French will never go to Iraq, that would mean the "Illegal incurrsion" was successful.

Maybe they can finally be of use to the Iraqis eh? After the violence tones down Westerners will flock to IRaq! Wouldn't it be something? I like your blog Ahmad, I'm linking you on mine if that is ok?

You laugh, but once all the terrorists are cleared out and Iraq is once again on its feet, it would be a nice place to visit. The cultural and historicl treasures are immense. Baghdad was once one of the most beautiful cities in the ME.

I want to see the one near the Nusoor (Eagles) Sq. I lived near by it for 10 years and never knew what was behind the walls... When I visited Baghdad after the war the US army made it a base, so I still didn’t get to see it, but one day, hopefully in my lifetime.

I think everyone should be jealous of Iraq because I would love to have huge cultural centers in America like that. I think its so great.

I hope that it doesn't encourage Sadaam worship though.

Fine, just as long as somewhere in each mansion is a picture of saddam behind bars.
