That may be so, but I doubt Chinese Resteraunt owners are a high priority target. Of course everything foreign in Iraq is a target, but when you have civillian specialists, politicians, and of course your enemy (In this case the US) the food entepeanours are far less important to kill. If a Chinese Resteraunt is ever bombed, my guess it is because lots of troops were eating there at the time of thye bombing.

I can tell you after eating MREs for 2.5 months and then T rations for another month, chinese food, burger king, and subway were as close to heaven as you can get.

Who ever tells you that life is hard at Baghdad International Air port is full of it. THat is the place to be in Iraq

I never thought eating would become painful but after 2 months of eating MRE's, it did. All the main meals have an after taste. After a while, they all start to taste the same. It has almost been a year since I ate one and I am not looking forward to eating them again on active duty.

Maybe they are not, but they can be at risk for being ¨enemy supporters¨at the eyes of hostile forces, so they can be a target even without a lot of GI´s in the premises, as a punishment or as an example for others "suporters".

Nop, it is not what WILL happen to them, but it MIGHT happen.

When I was in Kuwait people would order chinese food and they would actually deliver it to the gates....That blew my mind!

They might not be that good, but at least it breaks the monotony....

They start to suck if that's all you have for a few weeks.
