    That is how I say it.
    Moonbats worry about everything and they argue about everything, they are always amusing when they aren't being disgusting.

    Advertisements [?]It seems like people who've been there would pronounce it correctly, but I'm listening to yet another military guy on KO, and he pronounces it Eye-rack, too. What's with that?

    1. Most of those guys seem to be southerners. Is it because of their accent?

    I think DUmmy means a hard "G"

    3. Many mis prounounce it, and since there are more "Obama people"
    than there are Hillary's - certainly on the media, I would say that Obama people mis pronounce it. Now, doesn't it sound silly?

    Why not go outside, shout to the world that you hate Hillary, throw in Bill for good measure and find something else to worry about?

    way to dehumanize the people of Iraq. ???

    Makes the real person seem more like a video game. Easier to kill that way.
    Ah, a teacher.

    20. I'll tell you why...
    its' because anyone with two brain cells to rub together
    has already been kicked out by this administration
    and the only people left are those who think it's 'EYE-RACK'
    I open all of my university classes
    with the correct pronunciation of "Iraq"
    because I don't want my students to sound like idiots....
    And now we know!

    EYE-rack is a combo of relocated Crawford Caligula dialect and Faux News viewer pidgin.

    Most Americans mispronounce it as Eye-Rack. That's just the way it is.

    Maybe that's John Kerry's DUmmy name.

    What an utterly stupid thread. Only native speakers of the principle languages over there can pronounce the name "correctly". Just as the various hilarious versions of "America" heard around the world are usually "incorrect".

    What possible difference does it make? It's like someone from Toledo, Ohio is reading "Hostage In Peking" and not mentally whipping themselves every time they see Peking instead of Beijing.
