I Have Been Waiting for this News Story

Ever since I heard that Saddam Hussein was draining these wetlands, I had enough reason to hate the guy. And ever since the invasion of Iraq last spring, I have been wondering if someone´┐ŻAmerican troops, British troops, local contractors--I don't care who--would show up with some earthmoving equipment and start correcting the situation. It looks like that might be happening, according to the BBC's website. On the other hand, there's not enough water in the Euphrates any more.

Maybe Iraqis need to take up the infidel custom of holding Ducks Unlimited banquets and auctions to raise money for wetlands restoration.
