The Asia times reports that they are Dying for a McDonald's in Iraq. It seems that a London investors conference was agog with reports that McDonald's, among other corporations, may begin selling burgers and fries in Iraq by next year. There was no word, however, on when they might introduce the "McRib." While these early reports may be encouraging leading indicators, the economic reconstruction of Iraq can not be deemed a success until McDonald's is selling boneless pork sandwiches in Bagdad.
