Pepsi’s Iraq Marketing: 9/11 Celebration

(Kennedy Smith is a Southerner.  Just try and tell him “pop” is better than “Coke” @TheKennedySmith)



Via the Facebook page of Rolando Martinez, a guy closing down operations in Iraq.

Words fail.  This is not photoshopped.  It highlights what Chris Hitchens said in his conversation with Newt, below.  Most enemies you can understand.  This ideology is just insane.

UPDATE: Gotten some pushback from elsewhere that Pepsi couldn’t possibly have meant it this way.  But come on.  Skyscrapers, two planes, sparkly explosion graphic.  And exclusively marketed in the Arab world.  The deniability is just not plausible here.
