A Conspiração revelada

[...] One woman brought up the famliar left-wing trope about the dangers of corporate control of the media. She told she worried that Disney, which owns ABC, dictated the network's news coverage, especially during the run-up to the war in Iraq...we chimed in: "Why the hell would Disney want to go to war in Iraq?

[...] We thought the question was rhetorical, but Sean Magee, a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve, has an answer:

While flying from Baghdad to Tikrit for an oil pipeline security meeting in early 2005, the conversation over the headsets turned to what could be done with all the miles and miles of vast wasteland in even that, the generally fertile part of Iraq. One pilot wondered aloud about casinos, to which I opined golf courses. As much room as you could ever imagine for golf courses.

But when you brought up the Disney-ABC news conspiracy it finally made sense. A new world-class cartoon based theme park! We already have them in other conquered countries, France and Japan. Yes I know France was "Liberated" but isn't that also what we like to say about Iraq?

Yes, now it all makes sense. "Magic Kingdom Mesopotamia"--that's been the plan all along.
