    And be quick about it, before it gets even worse better

    Iraq, land of opportunity – says Jeffrey Archer (yes, him) at The Times

    I wonder if this appears anywhere else but the Times – as Rentoul reminds us here – behind a paywall? I shouldn’t think so.  Most of our press and half of our present government are still dreaming of getting Blair to The Hague for the “disaster” that is Iraq.

    Would you Adam and Eve it, Clegg? Ming?

    Anyone ever think to ask the locals what they think?

    OK, I will. Any Iraqis out there? Especially Baghdad locals? Please let us know what YOU think. (No loaded questions from me, note.)

    Rentoul:

    There is an excellent article in The Times today (pay wall) about the revival of Iraq. “Reconstruction is visible right across the country,” its says.

    Today [Baghdad] is a boom town, rather than a bomb site. If I were a young man, looking to make my fortune, I would be off to Iraq like a shot. Plenty of other young men are there already — Russians, French, Germans, Swedes, Chinese of course, even Turks and Lebanese. As one local politician remarked, when the Lebanese arrive you know there is money to be made.

    Pity the article is by Jeffrey Archer. (I didn’t realise that he is 70, though.)

    A recent comment from an Albanian, Mr Leonard Dedej from Tirana – “It takes big leaders to make the hardest turns in peoples life…mr Blair is a big leader and a great man for millions of people in Balkans!!!for stopping a savage war!about Iraq I believe that the press wherever it is has not the right to judge on this issue because it simply is to small to judge!!history will judge mr Blair!as long as it is an ongoing war no one can blame mr Blair,after all he started something for a big reason..the press its often wrong because it fights for audience!!!”
