What it feels like to be Saddam for a few minutes

On a lighter note. Fuad, an Iraqi citizen has been displaying Saddam Hussein's infamous
military suit at Tahrir square in downtown Baghdad. He confessed to Azzaman that he got the suit from one of Saddam's presidential sites in Baghdad after the war. He has been offering it since for rental to interested customers to wear for souvenir pictures. His fees range from 500 Dinars (25 cents) wearing the suit to 1000 Dinars for a walk in it. An American officer offered Fuad 200 Dollars for the suit but he refused stating that he depended on it for his livelihood, he was making 15 thousand Dinars a day from renting the suit to Baghdadis. The funniest thing is that Fuad employed 2 of his relatives as bodyguards for fear on the suit from getting stolen. (From Azzaman)

The economic conditions in Iraq are usually unpredictable in fact it is important that you keep an eye on the currency exchange and exactly how that appreciates. Once more - down load the Iraqi Dinar iGoogle Gadget and stay over it
