Blood and Money
In what might be called the mother of all surprises (to liberals),
Iraq's economy is growing strong, even booming in places.

It may sound unreal, given the daily images of carnage and chaos. But for a certain plucky breed of businessmen, there's good money to be made in Iraq.

Of course, the best part of the article is in the last sentence:
The withdrawal of a certain great power could drastically reduce the foreign money flow, and knock the crippled economy flat.

And the worst part about this economic boom is, Iraqis aren't even concerned whether the businesses are giving a living wage or not.
