Finally, A Real Exit Strategy in Iraq

You want to bring peace to Iraq and, frankly, all of the middle east? The first step is probably opening a beer hall in Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq. The Press Association (sersiously? There is an Associated Press and a Press Association?) is reporting that Gunter Voelker opened the beer hall and even threw his own version of an Oktoberfest complete with drindl-clad waitresses. Said Mr. Voekler, the festival can be held with people from "all over the world in peace and in a real good mood."

We have high hopes for this new peace movement because nothing is more appreciated in the middle east than scantily clad women and alcohol. If only we could force them all to play baseball instead of soccer...
