Check out the comments in this article at Freeperville. (I'll wait here while you go skim them.)

Oh. My. Fscking God. I think I just had an epiphany. These people really truly do not actually believe that the United States was aligned with Iraq in the Iran-Iraq war.

In Freeperville, apparently, everyone knows that all those mass graves, which the 24-hour news channels keep discovering in Iraq-- why, of course, they're filled entirely with the tortured remains of pro-Democracy dissidents. Hundreds of thousands of them, packed off in rail cars and put to death with nerve gas in great big open air concentration camps while the Russians, French and Germans looked on smiling with approval.

Meanwhile, back here in the real world, you're a blood-sucking leftist Satan-worshipper if you think maybe a lot of those corpses in those mass graves were KIA in the Iran-Iraq war with the rest of them mostly radical Islamists, Communists and other miscellaneous poor bastards who took a dodgy chance going up against the Baathists without the help of a British-American air-support umbrella.

We have got to figure out a way to make money selling crap to these people.
