Ailing Iraq President Flown to Jordan: Today's Cartoon

As unfortunate as it may be; suffering a stroke in Iraq appears more like a luxury, when compared to the other more prevalent forms of human misery, which are occurring on a daily basis... especially if this means that the person gets to leave the country, as a result.

Perhaps it is because most of the doctors have fled the war-torn country that Iraq's president Jalal Talabani must now be flown all the way to Jordan in order to be treated by them; or maybe it's due to the increasing risk of being shot or abducted within Iraqi hospitals that most citizens simply refuse to use them.

Either way, for those Iraqis who are ill, yet fortunate enough to be flown out of the country; the time they spend in the hospital may turn out to be the best "vacation" that they've had in a very long time... provided that they can recover, of course.
