FIFA Bans Iraq from Hosting Friendlies

By John Lee.

FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) has again barred Iraq from hosting international football friendlies because of the upsurge in violence in the country.

Fox News reports that the move comes just three months after the governing body of world football (soccer) gave Baghdad the go-ahead.

A spokesman for the Iraqi Football Association (IFA) described the decision as "regrettable."

    FIFA, Joseph Blatter (or Mr. Full Bladder) and his entire other FIFA officials still do not get the actual reality and the full report… Iraqis and all of their brave football teams (ALL AGES) will continue to play GOOD soccer (Football) and beat down, crush and shut out any soccer team from ANY country (Arab or Frap) they will face in any soccer STADIUM on this planet (You would actually have to ban playing soccer in all of Iraq before the Iraqis will beat them AGAIN)… We know who is behind this decree and we also know damn well who is financing these criminal acts (and spreading terrorism in the entire Middle East region) and targeting Iraq and the peace loving and PROUD Iraqis… Chapter VII, Chapter VI and whatever other chapters these COWARDS might come up with in the future will not stop or deter the Iraqis from reaching the SKY’s LIMIT and Iraqis will continue to step over the heads (and CRUSH) these filthy so-called FIFA officials (and those behind them) and beat them at their own games regardless of that obvious treachery… Iraqis will continue to show the world how to play soccer… Enough is said and that is the end of the story!
