Throughout the world we have been in a recession, but there is one country that has flourished. I’ll bet you wouldn’t guess this country if you tried (unless you’ve been following the financial improvements like I have). This country has seen much war, much death, much dislocation, much tyranny. She is now coming out on the other side of hell, and she is taking the free markets by storm.
Yes, that country is Iraq. See the graph below. The horizontal line represents the devastation from the war to the success of the ‘surge’ to the entrepreneurial spirit ingrown in each of us. I am very glad to see Iraq finally succeeding in a good way.
They may not have billions of dollars in their trading, but what they do have seems to be stable. That is more than I can say for many countries. Good on you, Iraq! Who said they couldn’t handle freedom and/or Liberty? Oh yes, that was the Left. Who do you trust to run the country?
Hat tip: Omar over at Iraq The Model (ITM).
May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
