Awesome! Over time, more good news like this will come. Electricity was one of the biggest Iraqi complaints, and hopefully more good news like this will calm those complaints. :beer::D

Good news indeed!

:beer: for the Army Corps of Engineers and the other agencies helping them. They really do some amazing work. Getting power to more of the country can only serve to help the situation in Iraq, and that is good news for all.

Nice try CAD.

Another shift from the real focus of what's happening.

Private Contractors have been getting shot, killed and slaughtered so the Parent Companies and Countries have been retracting and moving out while of course Military personnel would have to fill their places.

I will have to respectfully disagree Dave. While you are correct that things like that are happening, so are the things like Cad posted....they aren't mutually exclusive. Regardless of the how things are going in Iraq, there are still some good things going on that maybe we don't hear about as much as we should.

Bottom line:

They still don't want us there. Power or Not.

Nice try to hijack the thread. Your statement has nothing to do with the article or the thread.

Please move away if you do not have anything to contribute on the subject of the thread.

If you wish to keep on this line, I would suggest you start your own thread, with your own subject and your own article.

Anyway, it's nice to see that they are getting power to everywhere. Hopefully, they will have the majority of the country on 24/7 power before too long. I hate it when the power goes off for a couple of hours, much less have it shut down every day for at least 8 hours if you could even get any kind of service at all.

This news is really good news. If they can keep up with the ever growing demand for electricity in Iraq, nothing but good things will happen as a result. It will open new markets for business. Electricity is vital for that region as well as being able to keep up with the increase in demand.

I would however, gotta be a prick in every thread, like to know what they are doing HERE to assure we never have a HUGE blackout like we did a while back when 10s of millions of households (mine included) in the north east part of the country lost power for 5 days. Just please big government, spend a little of our money here in this country to fix problems like that. Not sure if any of you were affected by that blackout, be we lost a lot of business and a lot of food due to that domino effect. Not to mention, the world now knows (including terrorists) that they can black out the entire United States with a few well placed attacks at old, rundown power plants.
