« Were astronauts in orbit before launch? | Main | The Nifonging of Alberto Gonzales »

Were there really Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds on the team?

Frank Warner

Yes, the team had Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds.


That fact would be totally unsurprising if it weren't for people telling us ad nauseum for the last few years that Sunni and Shi'ites would never, ever get along.

Anyway, good for them. Soccer is a fun and challenging game to play.


Besides those three groups, I also heard that Turkmen were on the team. That about covers it all, doesn't it?

Frank Warner

It's funny to see grown men play a game that only children play seriously in the United States. But if it makes them happy and brings peace and freedom to the world, I'm all for it!

Any Christians or Jews?


Christians, possibly.

Jews? Are you kidding?
