Ah, El-Dibbley, Iraq!

Home village of Cut-Me-Own-Hand-Off Dhblah, the totally-free-of-pork Halal sausage merchant. It's been attacked by outraged customers several times, mostly recently by the population of Baghdad, but somehow the Dhblah tribe never seem to be there at the time.

And Iraq's Christians have fled by the hundreds of thousands in recent years. Out of 1.5 million in 2003, only around 200,000 remain. "There are more Iraqi Christians in Chicago than in Iraq," White said. "Chicago, Detroit and Sweden. That's where you'll find Iraq's Christians today."

Now, you would have thought a quality news organization like Fox would have been ALL OVER this story while it was happening, but that appears not to be the case.

And before I get a bunch of apologists in here: NPR and other LieBrul media outlets covered the shiat out of it.

This could've been a very nice story about the difficulties he faces and the work he does to try to make life better in Baghdad.

But it's Fox, so it's about how tragic it would be if there were a place without Christians

Yeah well. He's religious, and as such, he offers only religion, really. And it's brave what he does, but it's also stupid.
