Good News In Iraq...

I've just about had it with the mainstream media. For too long I've had to listen to their "doom and gloom" stories out of Iraq, despite all the progress we are obviously making. Well, sometimes direct action is required. I decided to go to Iraq myself in hopes that I could be a conduit for all those positive stories the media thinks we just can't stomach. What I found was eye-opening. There are TONS of good stories to report from Iraq. Here are just a few:
  • Some family in Ramallah actually got to run an electric fan for six minutes last Thursday.
  • The automotive scrap-yard industry is claiming record profits for the fourth straight year.
  • The water that comes out of Baghdad drinking fountains is now only 40% sand. That's down 10% from three years ago!
  • Private contractors have completed painting the rubble of what was once Fallujah South High School.
  • Troops are winning hearts and minds by politely removing muddy shoes before doing door-to-door searches.
  • Baghdad International Airport now features a Quizno's.
  • Hospitals are now equiped to offer anesthesia during surgery.
  • Some guy in Tikrit smiled the other day.

I think we should keep this war going. Look at all the good that's coming out of it.

Thanks for revealing the truth, Chris. What would we do without you?

So, you have a counterpart in Tikrit? I wonder if he has a blog ragging on conservative Iraqi journalists and talking about working at TCBM (The Country's Best Masgouf).

Iran, get ready for all this, AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!

Some more good news: Mass grave diggers have been retrained to return to the workforce as single grave diggers.

See, we're finally getting these backwards people trained to do something to benefit themselves!

And now with more troops, we should be receiving even more good news.

That ought to quiet down all those pantywaist bleeding heart liberals. You've done a fine public service there, son.

The average Iraqi should ask, like Ronald Reagan asked Americans, "Is my life better today than it was four years ago?"

Johnny- I despise you for reading my mind and posting my best ideas before I can muster the coordination to type them.

Any place that has a Quizno's is a great place.

Not to mention all that freedom and democracy we gave them!

Randy-- it's my blessing, it's my curse. What can I say.

Oh, and you'll think about the Reuben today at lunch, but end up going with the grilled chicken sandwich.

Thanks, Chris. There are many good things happening over there, but the media will not report on it because they are so into bashing Bush to further their on liberal agenda. You don’t hear about things like there are more people killed in the US in on month by illegal aliens than have been killed the whole time we have been in Iraq. Keep up the good work.
