Disneyland In Bagdad?!?
April 30, 2008 1:53pm CST
Disneyland is opening a multi-million dollar theme park aka entertainment park in Baghdad. It will have all the latest rides, gizmos, wizmos, and gadgets and bling you could ever want. * http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=8837 * Children lack sanitation, food, and safety, but the priority seems to be a lack of entertainment. Fascinating.

Well Disney is versatile if not anything else and perhaps Ariel if she were to be moved to Iraq might learn to respect local customes and learn to cover up. But seriously, this shows the difference between the private and public sector in the USA. Since the invasion, the US government has managed to destroy anything that was of any value in Iraq and at nearly everystage done everything in its power to insult the locals into wanting to shoot at them (not that they are that different from many Americans towards their government). But then a private company like Disney comes along and hey presto things can happen. Seriously, if there's any company in the world that can place "Western" values into the Islamic world, it is Disney. How do they do it, they adapt other people's ledgends and make it their own - can you imagine Disney may even be able to turn Mochtar Al Sadar into a cuddley toy.

If they go the rout of respecting the local culture and cuddlifying it, and then fixing the infostructure of the country, purifying water plus making clean food grow, maybe, but that is one tall order. I don't know just how independent Disney is from the US government and entities like Blackwater or Haloburtan. Neither of the latter have good reputations. Walt Disney, the founder of Disney, has passed away.
