Flee Control

Good news just keeps pouring out of Iraq, kind of like sewage from a storm drain clogged by debris from a carbombing.

The latest is that over 1.5 million Iraqis have now fled the country. An estimated 500,000 Iraqis are seeking shelter in Jordan, and Syria has an estimated 450,000 refugees.

Some naysayers may point at these figures and say that this is horrible news, but that's only because they're defeatists.

First and most importantly, all these people fleeing Iraq is great news for the moving van and ox cart industries. Plus, coupled with the rising death toll, these figures also mean that pretty soon there won't be any Iraqis left in Iraq. Then we won't have to worry about saving them any more!

This brilliant strategy is brought to you by the same people that saved the people of New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina.
