Freedom, Part II
Vice Squad links to another Guardian article, which states that Iraq's transport minister has banned the sale of alcohol at Baghdad International Airport.
The minister reportedly justified his ban by saying that Iraq was an Islamic country and that "it would give a bad and wrong first impression to visitors".
The alcohol row comes as conservative Shia Islamists on the committee writing the country's new constitution are trying to have the country renamed the Federal Islamic Republic of Iraq.
The article goes on to state that "Now, Baghdad airport is one of the few places in the capital where alcohol is still sold. ... In the rest of the city most liquor stores have closed after attacks by extremists."
Yep, freedom is on the march!
