More "voting with their feet"

Here's a little something to keep in mind when idiotarians (inluding UN Human-Rights types) tell you that the US has made things much worse in Iraq...

BBC News: The UNHCR is to close several camps for Iraqi refugees in Iran because more than half of the 202,000 exiles have returned home.

The UN's refugee body said 42,000 out of 50,000 Iraqis at the centres had left since the fall of Saddam Hussein. Six out of the UN's 22 camps in south Iran are empty and another two are due to close by the end of the month.

The agency has discouraged repatriation because of insecurity in Iraq and the border-crossing is riddled with mines. About 107,000 refugees have left Iran since the former Iraqi leader was removed last year...
