Iraqi Better Business Bureau (IBBB) President Ishmail Merchant was outraged at what he called, "The Lies", told by US delegation to Iraq this week.
A congressional delegation led by Republican Presidential hopeful, Az Senator John McCain found the marketplaces of Baghdad peaceful and thriving business places. Baghdad storekeepers claim that the US forces swept the area with shock and awe just moments before the observers arrived.
"An entire company of US soldiers in Humvees tranquilized our usual death trap with armadas of attack heliocopters aloft throughout the Americans's "Fact"-finding mission. The only facts were their bullet-proof vests. What we will find after they leave will be our dead loved ones and destroyed property", Store owner Rachmid Halim Macy explained.
McCain told reporters after the tour that he felt safer than he does at the Phoenix Mall: "At least Baghdad Galleria doesn't have those scary blacks and Mexicans we have in Arizona malls!"
