Iraqi TV - They have learned well

Not sure if this is the Iraqi equivalent of Meet the Press or what....the show is called "The Democracy Club"....but it's clear they have learned the value of manners and civility from their American friends....freaking hilarious....

Beats the 24-hour coverage of the Saddam mural.

That goes way beyond Saddam and politics, that's Sunni Vs Shiite. Hatred that goes back 1,400 years. Honestly I can't recall any of our guys coming to blows on TV. It's probably happened, I just don't remember or haven't seen it.


But yeah, it being called "The Democracy Club" is pretty damn funny.

Bullshit.

^^^I always get a huge kick out of the Everett/Rome thing.

But honestly, how big of a fucking douchebag is Rome? He needs to get his ass kicked.

In a language full of pummeled, abused and raped words, "democracy" is one of the most bruised, scarred victims.
