Iraqi Pop Star

Yes thats right - Iraq has it's own Idol-like show: Iraq Star.

You'd think on an topic as innocuous as a TV show, Reuters could pretend to be neutral. Nope:
Suicide bombs, assassinations, kidnappings, shootings by nervous soldiers in the U.S. or Iraqi army -- all have become daily fare in Iraq since the invasion put an end to Saddam's rule, which offered stability despite the oppression.
Unless you were a Marsh Arab, Kurdish, a female desired by one of Saddam's sons, a member of a dissident political group, refused to serve in Saddam's army...

Reuter's new definition of stability: when the murderous criminals run the country.

But Lemur, at least they are the SAME murderous criminals every year!

I can think of nothing worse than the people who are murdering and torturing my freinds, family and neighbours being in a constant state of flux, can you?
