Panel recommends that U.S. lower its profile in Iraq September 6, 2007Posted by chuckwh in Al Gore, Gore, Iran, Iraq, President Gore.
An independent panel led by the heirs of Orville Redenbacher is recommending that businesses and organizations in Iraq that have direct ties to the U.S. lower their profile. “There is a mythology that Iran happened because a dictator ruled the country,” said the spokesperson for the panel, Christiane Amanpour, “but we would argue that what happened was that Iran experienced a shockwave, and that the Ayatollahs were merely a symptom of a larger backlash against Western materialism. Conditions are ripe for the same thing to happen in Iraq today.”
Iraq, as everyone knows, is the new glam child of the Middle East, but its Shi’ite population is becoming a bit restive.
