Times of Iraq

Remember those heady days of the early 2000's, as we invaded multiple nations under the pretense of security and liberty? 
Part of the sales pitch for Americans included 'Once we liberate the people, they will love us and become our allies in the region. 

Yeah, those were quite the fanciful dreams. Turns out, people who don't like you much before you invade their homes are no more likely to like you or your message after an invasion.  Iraq has banned the BBC and the Voice of America, among other outlets this week.
