Iraqis have discovered what the rest of the world has long known but won't admit: They like the stuff those evil imperialist Americans make. BAGHDAD-When Steve Yelda, a 17-year-old Iraqi high school student, visits the Al-Ameer market, he heads straight for the Pringles display case.
"The taste," he says, "Is incredible."
Many Iraqis are developing a taste for American-brand products, which were banned under Saddam Hussein and are becoming increasingly popular.
Rice, salt and canned goods are among the most popular American products at the Al-Ameer market, owner Mohammad Abbas said. "American items have a great reputation and quality," he said. "And people want them in our markets because they got bored of Syrian, Jordanian and Iranian items." Once again, capitalism and freedom of choice 1, terrorism and Islamofascism 0.
