Iraq News (25 Mar)

The Good: Iraq has a brand new electronic stock exchange. I guess that's progress, now where's the starbucks for the yuppie day traders to get their triple mocha lattes.

The Bad: Clashes with, supposedly, the Mahdi army in Basrah and Baghdad. This has potential to get really nasty. Mr. Sadr's people are saying that these are peaceful protests. Hard to say what the hell is going on. Stay Tuned.

The Ugly: Bush reiterates that the war was still worth it. That's a pretty bold statement at this point...

Read about the Easter present Haji sent you, LT. Glad you kept your head down.

They're less creepily violent than the Japanese were. I kind of like the land of the rising sun these days, and we lost a lot more guys for that one. A lot more than we would have had too had we pre-empted them too.
