Iraq to get a 'disneyland' ?

Disneyland comes to Baghdad in an entertainment park
Hmmmmm, people being blown up, no food , no water, nothing but an American style park???
There seems to be something not quite right here,the fact that the people who have brought about the destruction of Iraq, want to build an "entertainment" park, seems disturbing.

Judging by some of the comments at the news site I am not the only one who sees this as strange;

"Are you bored while your family is either dead, fighting or bearly surviving? no prob, the same people that destroyed your country and culture are now bringing you more shock and awe with the disney indoctrination park!" This is insulting, abusive, corrupt and shameless, a total inversion of values


This is probably the most ridiculous thing I've read about in a while. Never mind the hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties in the Iraq war or the blatant disregard for international law by our military, let's just build an amusement park and make money off of whoever we haven't killed yet!"

An interesting perspective on the purpose of this park can be found here;

  1. Perhaps this indignity is an attempt to appease the "commoners" of Iraq with distracting entertainment. That would be a lot like the condition of many of us here in America. Psychological warfare is much more effective than physical.

    Keep up the great work Penny.

  2. hey jerseylou:

    it would most certainly function as a distraction and a friendly face on the occupiers and their rather brutal occupation.
    Psychological warfare can be more effective because it is insidious.

    However, I don't think this is going to fly, the Iraqis resent their occupation to much. This american style theme park will be like a pox to them.
