Iraq Wins, Players Not Tortured

The Old Iraq: Following a defeat for Iraq's football team, star player Sharar Haydar was dragged along a hot pavement, rolled in sand, then forced to leap into a sewage pit so that his wounds became infected.

The New Iraq: Iraq Beat Portugal!

Maybe Kos should watch more ESPN: The new Iraq looks just like the old one....We replaced one brutal dictatorial regime with another brutal dictatorial regime.

Yup, Just like it.

UPDATE: Kevin summarizes the opening ceremonies nicely:

Regardless of the outcome in their respective events, the Iraqi Olympic delegation are winners since they no longer face torture or death upon their return home.
