There has been a lot of progress in Iraq and it will take time for the mission to be completed. Iraq is fighting for its right to exist. The Iraqi people are stepping up to the plate. Their military is getting stronger, their police are being trained, and the Iraqis have been able to cast their popular vote two times already. Our mainstream media (MSN) focuses on the negative as does our most liberal left agenda. The liberal left would like to see Iraq fail because that justifies their hating President Bush and wanting to see him fail. What you have is "Sports Bar Politics."
Anyway, just wanted to share with you some positive news from Iraq compliments of: American Forces Press Service
