“Coca-Cola has returned to Iraq after an absence of nearly four decades, triggering a cola war in a lucrative but potentially hostile market. Coke ended its 37-year exile last week by setting up a joint-venture bottling company to compete with Pepsi for 26 million consumers.
Will the war go better with Coke?
We look forward to the opening of Baghdad Disneyworld and the transplanting of outsourced business from India to Sadr City.
