Blogging Tory Jarrett Plonka pretty much needs a towel to clean himself up after the unbridled euphoria:
Iraqi electricity production is skyrocketing.
And then there's that gosh-darned reality:
Iraq's electricity production jumped more than 10 percent in roughly the first six months of 2008 compared to the same period a year ago, the director of energy operations for coalition forces said Sunday.
Yee ha, dude! A full year of hard work, and a 10 per cent increase. Who says productivity is a thing of the past? And the good news just rolls on:
Those efforts have helped boost electricity production by 11 percent. But there is still not enough capacity to meet all of Iraq's needs, so coalition forces are working with the Iraqi government on ways to share power across the country, said Wilks.
Even with current efforts, "it will take many years of major investment to meet the rising energy demand in Iraq," Wilks said.
Yeah, see, that's what happens when you scroll further than the headline, Jarrett. It's what we leftard moonbats call "reading." Any time you want to try it, let us know, and we'll walk you through it.
