Iraqi sovereignty won't extend online

When an interim government takes over from the U.S.-led occupation next week, Iraq will regain its place among the world's sovereign nations -- except on the Internet.

More than 240 places have their own two-letter Internet country codes, from ".ac" for Ascension Island to ".zw" for Zimbabwe. There's even ".ps" for the Palestinian territories.

Is there anything related to Iraq, The War Against Terrorism, or Bush's policies that does not seem to emanate from bizzaro world?

If you don't care, don't post.

I think this is interesting.

If Chrismas Island can have their own ccTLD (.cx), why all the trouble getting .iq up & running? Well, the guys who used to admin the extension are under indictment for financially supporting Hamas.
Now, ICANN is apparently dragging their feet about who should admin the ccTLD.

Bullpoo, I say.
Give the country their .iq, fer cryin' out loud. It's a small step, but it's a step nonetheless.
