The Great Iraqi Train Robbery

Because you thought it couldn't get any worse...
During the five years the United States has occupied Iraq, the Bush administration has created a new state with a number of notable features: A venal, dysfunctional government. A terrorist haven and training ground. A nation so violent and dangerous that 10 percent of the population has fled.

Add to that a new hallmark: Nearly the most corrupt nation on Earth.
I am not a rabid patriot by any stretch, but I am increasingly glad we officially stayed out of that clusterfuck.
