    Fast food comes to Iraq





    Basra: Fastfood giants Pizza Hut and Burger King have set up their first franchises inside war-torn Iraq, even as many aid convoys waited on the borders for the war to officially end.

    The arrival of the two restaurants - sited inside giant trailers on a British military base near Basra - won a rapturous welcome from soldiers, whose limited range of rations lost their appeal many weeks ago.

    But some officers were less keen on the new arrivals, which are due to start selling food tomorrow.

    "I would prefer we got decent showers and toilets sorted out first," muttered one high-ranking officer.

    Fastfood outlets are common in US bases, including Camp Doha in Kuwait, but it is believed to be the first time they have been sited inside a British military base.



    Another officer, who was directly involved in the franchise process, said: "It's an Americanism, we usually have them off the base, but because it is still a war zone we have to give them protection."

    Permission to open the restaurants was granted through the British Army and they will be run by existing franchise holders from Kuwait, with a percentage of any profits going to charity.

    But soldiers waiting for a brewery franchise to be awarded are set for a disappointment as military chiefs have already vetoed any alcohol being sold on the base, which is home to almost 8000 British soldiers.

    The Kuwaiti franchise holders provided staff and raw materials and the Army escorted them into Iraq, although it is understood it will not provide constant escorts for the supply runs.

    A spokesman for the two restaurants, Atef Bassent, said: "I hope we will do good business here."

    The message between the lines

    "They got PIZZA HUT in Kuwait, but Iraq didn't have shit."

    I ate Marine Corps chow. It wasn't bad. Boot camp chow was first class. We got big ass steaks on the Marine Corps Birthday (November 10th.) Turkey on Thanksgiving and Christmas, with all the trimmings, no matter where you are or what you're doing, you get turkey on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    But when you're deployed, like in Iraq, you are probably lucky to get three MRE's a day. The real problem isn't chow, but getting enough CLEAN WATER. We take all this shit for granted here in the U.S. You ought to see some of the fucking Third World shitholes they sent us to.

    Inside the U.S. bases, as soon as it is humanly possible, they bring in pure, clean water, decent housing, decent shower facilities, air conditioning, and enlisted and officer's clubs. Maybe no booze in a Muslim country, but they will have American TV, pool tables, CD players, free Long Distance telephones to the States, etc. Not everywhere, but they will have this shit in the enlisted and officer's clubs, and Special Services clubs. (Special Services is like the recreation specialists. In California our USMC Special Services club had surfboards and skateboards you could check out, pool tables, a big TV room with a fairly large-sized (1978) screen, old-style video games, free coffee, Coke machines, candy machines, etc.) I never checked out any surfboards or skateboards--I already owned my own. When I was on Okinawa, we checked out skeet guns from the Special Services section at the range and shot skeet. It was a lot of fun. The skeet guns were all 12 ga.--and re-loads were dirt cheap.
    We all loved the fact that you could get a MacDonald's burger right on the base. Why not? Most Marines are about 19 years old. They didn't like the chow hall chow much. Too much like food you would get at school cafeterias. They all wanted "fast food", and plenty of it.

    So the Iraqis don't have it. Sucks to be them. Their society will be back up and running soon enough.

    I'll be 53 in November. Shit, that's fucking old. Hard to believe. The years go by quick, especially when you are trying to raise kids.
