    Every Christmas sees one toy emerge as the most-wanted, gotta have gift — remember Tickle Me Elmo, and Beanie Babies from years past? Well, 2015’s big hit has emerged: The Iraq-Syria LEGO Playset.


    The set retails for three trillion dollars, though the price may have doubled by the time this is published. Included in the standard set are enough LEGOS to build replicas of Mosul and Fallujah, allowing a child to refight those battles over and over.

    Figures, all with removable heads, include Sunni militias, Islamic State fighters, Shia militias, one figure representing the actual Iraqi Army, American special forces with and without boots, Iranians, Kurds, Turks, Russians, Syrians (moderate and radical, though they cannot be told apart), British, French and Italian troops, shady Saudi financiers and Hezbollah soldiers.

    The basic set also includes a starter pack of refugee figures, though most people will want to opt for the bonus pack, if only to get access to the limited edition dead children refugee figures.

    Not included: any weapons of mass destruction.


    While the Iraq-Syria LEGO Playset will provide any child with decades of fun, even more adventures can be played out by buying the Turkish Expansion Pack.

    And parents, please note: Even after careful construction with the best of intention, the playset tends to simply fall apart.

      “American special forces with and without boots”

      Truly, they did not specify any other type of footwear.

      I can just imagine Gen Thomas cutting orders which explicitly prohibit the use of certain categories of footwear.

      Also, would this mean there’s a govt contract out there to provide tactical socks and sandals?

      Meanwhile, on a side note.. as I’ve noted over and over here.. the private prison sector in Murika is betting on locking up more and more citizens, and their main spokesman is giving his sales pitch to the investors…

      Which gives rise to the axiom..

      Evil exists because good men don’t hang scum sucking corporate cockroaches who commit it.

      Although, come push to shove.. they may. I hope I live to see the day.

      I remember a donation box I could check on my 1040 that said I would get the starter set if I agreed to contribute another $55 to the Pentagon (on top of all the money I am required to give). I felt good that I could contribute something extra and jumped at it. I’m still waiting for the set.

      Your set is waiting for you. Bad news is that you have to go to Ramadi and pick it up.
