Iraq's foreign Minister, Sabri, said the following today or yesterday...
He said Iraq was hoping to revive the good trade ties it enjoyed with the United States before Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990. The United States led the 1991 Gulf War ( news - web sites) that forced Iraq out of Kuwait.
"We've been doing this with the United States up to 1990, we've been importing one-fourth of all American exports of rice ... Americans were importing more than 60 percent of our oil exports," Sabri said. "We can do business again."
...made me chuckle.
