Re: $250/Month


A soldier in the Iraqi Army makes around $300 a month, while the terrorists are offering about $300 per night for anyone willing to plant an IED. Yet Iraqi Army boot camps are turning out around 1,650 brand new soldiers every five weeks. And that number is slated to double in 2006.

To me, this – and the fact that Iraqis are turning out to vote as we speak – says so much about what Iraqis hope for their country.
