Heres an interesting little bit of history of Cutlass Ciera's in the middle east.


"During the Iran-Iraq war that lasted from September 1980 to August 1988, Iraq lost hundreds of thousands of soldiers. In the early years of the war, the families of those killed did not receive compensation from the government. The Iraqis researched how other countries, including the United States, compensate the families of the fallen, and came up with a uniquely Iraqi solution.

The family of an enlisted soldier or noncommissioned officer was given a red Brazilian-made Volkswagen Passat. When I was in Baghdad in 1987 and 1988, I saw thousands of them everywhere – easily the most common vehicle on the road. The family of an officer killed in the war was given a white Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. There were a lot of them on the roads as well."

The headlights and grill are okay!!!


But, seriously I have to feel bad for the owner's family. That "private security firm" was probably Blackwater. They're a bunch of psychotic, testosterone raging, nutballs.
