Help the Chief

I've you've been alive for more than six seconds, you probably know about Chief Wiggles and his toys for Iraqi kids plan. If you DON'T know about it, check your pulse (because you might be dead), and then get over there to help.

I'm not behind this just because it's a cute "Awwww, lets help out da little kiddies" type of thing. This is one heck of an opportunity to impress on the average Iraqi that Americans are friendly, affable, and generous, things that we want them to know before they get their country back completely. Think of it as bringing a bottle of wine over to your new neighbor who just moved in next door. "Hey, nice to meet you, I'm Dave, and I'd like to welcome you to the block!". Only this isn't the block, it's the world, and all the greedy, power-hungry assholes that inhabit it, who will take the Iraqi's for a ride the moment we leave the country. We need to let them know who their friends are, and I think this could go a long way towards doing that.

'Cause the damn *spit*french*spit* sure aren't going to do squat.
