Five Years Later: The Chickens Come Home to Roost « The Washington Independent

There were no WMD in Iraq. There was no connection to al-Qaeda or 9/11. There was no democracy or human-rights advancement of any significance in Iraq, only chaos, death, illiberalism and the devastation of the country. But at least chicken farming is almost at prewar levels.

This is an actual press release that the Pentagon sent to reporters. It is, as best I can tell, an attempt at reporting the good news from Iraq and not a parody.

FORWARD OPERATING BASE KALSU, Iraq, March 17, 2008 – Chicken farming in Iraq is moving toward pre-war levels, as coalition forces work with farmers to overcome challenges.

Dialogue has begun on how to increase production with the owners of seven chicken houses in the region where the 3rd Infantry Division’s 3rd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, operates. …

Of the initial 7,500 chicks, only 210 died during this cycle, a 2.8 percent loss for Abdul Sataar. He will sell the chickens to the highest bidder from the Baghdad, Karbala or Hilla markets.

“This is an absolute success story,” said Capt. David Stewart, commander of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3-7th Infantry Regiment. “Abdul conducts his business without coalition assistance and is able to maintain profitability.”
