IRAQ: The colonel deploys to Fallouja

Hires_080716m4023m003a_5 Fallouja, once the hub of the Sunni insurgency, is now deemed safe enough for American fast-food franchises.

In a neighborhood where the U.S. fought two bloody battles against insurgents in 2004, a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet has opened.

Said to be popular with Iraqis and with Marines who still patrol the streets.

Please open up a KFC in North Korea! The starving people there need to eat!

I cannot believe there is a Kentucky Fried Chicken in Iraq!
