Looks like Mark Steyn hits another one outta the park ...
Many Iraqis are voting with their feet. The UN High Commission for Refugees, which was expecting about two million new refugees to flee from the war last year, instead found no takers. All the traffics the other way, and the UN is now closing down its camps around Iraqs borders owing to lack of business. The other day, the UNs Ashrafi Camp in Iran, after 30 years as the largest Iraqi refugee facility, threw in the towel when the last refugee went home. Despite being advised by UNHCR that it was unsafe to do so, a million Iraqis are said to have gone back. Not bad for a country which in Saddams day was the fifth-largest exporter of refugees.

(If it weren't for old, outdated ideas, Democrats would have no ideas at all.)
In another hundred years, Mark Steyn will probably be recognized as the pre-eminant political observer of his time.
I usually don't like his serious essays as much as his satire, but this one's a keeper.
Thanks for the ping. So glad I didn't miss this!
