    Zain (formerly MTC Atheer) filled a vacuum left by the utter failure of Qualcomm. Qualcomm lobbied to use a technology (CDMA) that was not compatible with, and against the advice of, nearly everyone in the middle east and Europe (who use GSM technology). ... Another shining example of U.S. corporate greed, with a select Reagan-era company pegged and getting fat off Pentagon pork.

    Anyhow, the world that is telecom bidding in a war-ravaged country by vultures looking in is a very complex one.

    Here's an excellent story giving a bit of perspective:

    And less traffic accidents caused by women talking on their cells while putting on their makeup....OOOPS! Sorry! I forgot that women in Iraq aren't allowed to drive or wear makeup!
