You can always count on there being some nasty comment in any good news involving this administration.

[Q]France moved to normalize business ties with Iraq on Monday, just hours after the U.S.-led coalition occupying the country announced it had transferred sovereignty to an interim government two days ahead of schedule.

The French Finance Ministry said in a statement that full economic ties with Iraq will be restored immediately following Monday's hand-over of power to the country's interim government. [/Q]

On a good side, France is on board.

So, what's going to happen now? I guess the first thing will be to recognize the government. What do they have to do to get the government recognized?

It probably involves filing a number of forms in triplicate.

Internet people in Iraq have a unique problem. Their country doesn't have a "national" code the way other countries do. This is a part of government and other URL's. It should be .iq. But this code was acquired by a company that got in hot water with the government over something. They did something illegal. The Iraq museum in Baghdad has already registered a domain, I think it's iraqmuseum. Some Iraqi wanted to start a site with the .iq. code in it and just put "Republic of Iraq" on it. The agency that assigns national Internet codes wouldn't let him. He said "we just want to prove the country exists". The agency still says no. So while Iranian sites can use .ir. Iraqi sites don't have a national code, and they don't want to share one with another country.
