mission accomplished

"If we give the money to the widows, they will spend it unwisely because they are uneducated and they don't know about budgeting. But if we find her a husband, there will be a person in charge of her and her children for the rest of their lives."
- MAZIN al-SHIHAN, director of a city agency in Baghdad, on his plan to pay
men to marry Iraqi war widows.
