NPR: Iraqis Enjoying New Freedoms

Iraqis are exercising their new-found freedoms on the streets of Baghdad. Amazing! Who would have thought that 4 years ago? Kudos to NPR for such unbiased reporting!

(Btw, the oil shortage being protested here is a direct result of price controls left over from the Hussein regime. It is illegal to sell gasoline for a price higher than roughly five cents per gallon. Lift the price controls and there won't be an oil shortage. Remember our own experience in the 1970's here? I wonder if any Iraqi candidates are making this a campaign issue.)
