    From the Dept. of Forgetting Afghanistan..., 2004-02-04 11:44:31 | Main | never have so few lead so many to be so wrong..., 2004-02-12 16:17:55

    New-Zealanding Iraq:

    yes indeedy, whole nations turned into Hollywood-themed amusement parks, what could be more culturally enriching? Chris Matthew Sciabarra points out that the Pentagon is getting in on the action with the original set of The Exorcist: Nebuchadnezzar era Iraq. And why stop there?

    The tourist possibilities in Iraq are endless!!! Tourists can see the Sunni Triangle, where US troops face daily murderous attacks. Or maybe tourists can travel to the south of Iraq to find the home of Ayatollah Ali Sistani, who might lead the Shi'ites in a massive rebellion against U.S. forces. Or maybe tourists can actually go on a WMD-hunt, similar to the Easter-egg rolls and hunts that have traditionally taken place on the White House lawn. Oh wait: You actually have to have WMDs for "The WMD Experience," otherwise tourists might think they were deceived. At least "The Exorcist Experience" features 2,600 year-old temples that are easily located.
