Iraq says it will close its border crossings with Iran and Syria for three days as part of its new security plan for the capital, Baghdad.
"Correspondents say it is unclear how the border closure will be effective as the frontiers are long, porous and often barely guarded."
Wait, you're correspondents, too. So isn't that a little bit like interviewing your thumb? And don't any of your collective thumbs wonder if they just might decide to put more troops on the border? It's only three days. Besides, they can shoot first, ask questions later. Cuts down on labor costs.
I am talking to myself as well. But you guys are in Iraq.
