More Dabbaghisms

Ahhh. Half of Iraq's insurgents are Syrian. And now we have a new accusation.

Syrian authorities are restricting visas for Iraqis to 15 days (the same restriction given to all non-Arabs). "Thousands of Iraqis are being put in a difficult situation," he said. Syria's reply: "Some Iraqi parties, which are linked to Washington, are unhappy with the positive developments that have occurred in Syrian-Iraqi relations."

I wonder how many days a Syrian would be allowed into Iraq before being kidnapped and put in an Iraqi prison without trial by Dabbagh's militia (they're called the Iraqi police force).

Syria currently has more Iraqi refugees than any other country in the world. Iraqis get free education and health care.
