Iraqis have more TV choices since 2003

MAHMOOD AL-BACHARY: "Before 2003 there were two Iraqi television channels. One represented the state and the other was run by the president’s son Uday Saddam Hussein. Now there are 22 local television channels in Basra, and more than 30 newspapers. Each house now has a satellite dish to receive every television channel in the world. All of these beautiful scenes in the country have revived the Iraqi people toward progress and prosperity. But still, Iraq, one of the largest oil-producing nations in the world, imports electricity generators because there is no electricity to allow the citizens to enjoy these achievements."

Thanks Fayrouz for posting the link.
