Iraq: second most corrupt place on earth
Share
clear

BEIRUT: Violence-plagued Iraq is perceived as one of the most corrupt countries in the world, Transparency International (TI) said in a study released Monday. The Berlin-based corruption watchdog ranked 163 countries based on perceived levels of corruption in its 2006 Corruption Perceptions Index.

Haiti, the poorest country in the Americas, was ranked last, just below Iraq, Myanmar and Guinea, reflecting what TI described as a high degree of correlation between violence, poverty and corruption...

And America continues skipping merrily around the world, bringing democracy and economic opportunity and other good things for all the boys and girls and "Moms and Dads" who, as we all know, want the same things for their children...

Oh, does that sound cynical?
