World Cup draw...

I was going to post a lengthy discussion of the
2006 Fifa World Cup draw. I'll just say that the USA got placed into the hardest group in the tournet including Ghana (the strongest African team represnted) Italy, and The Chezch Rep., and despite this the journos are saying that group C is the "Group of Death" including both the Arggies, the Dutch, but Cote de Ivoire and Serbia and Montenegro make up the last two teams, and are laughably weak compared to Ghana and the USA. I just can't figure out how a team who had to be put into a special pot and a weak African team can both be in a group and it still be labeled a Group of Death.
Instead of going further into this, I'll let some of the usuals weigh in:

I don't think Serbia's going into "Pot X" is a reflection of the quality of their team, I think their was a random drawing from the non-seeded European teams to be "Team X."

It was only set up to prevent any one group from having three European teams.
