Sports news

How well is the U.S. doing in Iraq? And how large are those air bases they've already built and have no intention of giving up? The answer to both questions is in today's sports news. In Iraq today, the "Marine Corps Marathon Forward" was held to coincide with the real Marine Corps Marathon in Washingon, D.C. For two years now, the "Iraq/Boston Marathon" has been held in Iraq to coincide with the real Boston Marathon.

And, needless to say, you know where those marathons are being held, right? Within the confines of the huge American air bases in Iraq, naturally. Even an armed soldier wouldn't dare run a mile alone outside of the confines of their heavily guarded bases or the Green Zone, much less 26.2 of them. Because, no matter what George Bush and the American media want you to think, the American armed forces aren't welcome in Iraq. They are hated by virtually the entire population, and one of them wouldn't last an hour walking or running among that population without protection. And the armed forces know that very well. Which is why they should be back in the United States, where they can run as many marathons as they want, in front of cheering crowds of the native population.
