A little Good news out of Iraq

The old media continues to spew headlines of carnage and death in Iraq, while congress debates to cut off funding for US Operations, and public support for our efforts there diminish. There are some other headlines that should have been given some air time, but since these articles did not support the liberal media and Democrat agenda of Bush bashing and undermining our support for the war, they seldom get any publicity.

Here are a few articles that never made it onto the headlines or in the evening news.

Troops, Residents Celebrate School Reopening

BAGHDAD, Jan. 29, 2007 — Do you remember your first day of school? It was one of the first times you’d be away from your family, and you were probably a little nervous. Now, imagine walking through one of the worst neighborhoods in Iraq just to go to school.

Army Engineers Help Develop Port Capacity

New Schools Open in Mushahidah

MUSHAHIDAH, Iraq, Jan. 23, 2007 — It has been said that fostering education is one of many steps toward improving safety and stability for Iraq’s future — its children.

Public opinion of the war in Iraq has diminished considerably, poll results and the November elections demonstrated that full well. Public opinion is driven in a very large part by what the media portrays.  The media’s portrayal of Iraq has been extremely one sided… The side of the terrorists…

  1. I am so fed up with the msm. Things are not perfect in Iraq, but overall they would be better along with American attitudes about it if the media did the job they are supposed to be doing.

    They are little more than undeclared opinion rags/networks. It’s not just a case of reporting what sells either; they are outright thwarting the success of our country in any endeavor.

    It’s the height of arrogance to believe you are always right, especially without balancing it. Facts are facts, but they don’t much care for the ones that don’t agree with their line of thinking. They have the power to mold and shape our opinions-almost more so than the political parties.

    You have to have a free press, but man…

    Thanks for the good news!
