Reader comment on item: Saddam's Damn Dam [i.e., The Mosul Dam]

Submitted by Yuval Brandstetter MD (Germany), Nov 10, 2007 at 15:33

I guess it is time for the US to quit Iraq while the going is good and the dam is still up. The carnage Iraqis will inflict upon each other will make the bursting of the Dyke paltry. Anyway, they are dying to be martyrs, aren't they?

How about the Aswan dam? is it not somewhat shaky? Wasnt it built for the glory of Nasser by the Russians rather than for any good reason?

As for shoddy German engineering, I always suspected Mercedes and BMW spend far more time in the shop than on the road. Thats is why Arabs love Mercedes. They were good at one thing though. Making airtight trucks that allowed gas exhaust in, bodies of dead Jews out. Now comes the nekuma.
