As a small step that could be considered a healthy vote of confidence in Iraq's return to stability, Mercedes has established a corporate representative office in Baghdad. Daimler set up shop in Erbil, Iraq last February, opening a training center that would get mechanics ready for coming Mercedes products. By installing a corporate representative, the company will have someone on the ground to figure out how best to introduce new Mercedes products to the country. The rep will focus on examining and developing the market for trucks and buses, which Daimler should have all to itself for a while.
The source website is slow loading, but if you go over, you'll see the comments are rather unflattering to the MSM.
Note the trunk space. You can fit over 500 pounds of C4 in there and still have room for your golf clubs.
Daimler embraces Iraq but dumped Chrysler. That should tell you something right there!
Yea, they raided the cash and dump the rest like a cheap hooker.
I see you're a fan of MTV Iraq's "VBIED my ride".
Daimler's going where there's money to be made.
Which ain't the US of A, sad to say.
