Forza Iraq

I think it's safe to say that Iraq's against-the-odds run to the Asian Cup final bids fair to become the football story of the year. A championship for a country that the US tested the Pottery Barn Doctrine on would be a beautiful thing.

Of course, if Iraqi football keeps improving, there's every chance that the US will be drawn against the Lions in the group stage of the 2010 World Cup. I'm sure they would greet us as liberators.
