Great job. This is something I've always been saying as well. On the news, tragic and terrible events get far more coverage than good events. Mainly that's because people are drawn to drama. Good idea.

I know you are trying to look on the bright side, but it is hard to stay cheery when you're leaders are invading innocent cultures.

Don't forget the MASSIVE profits being made by Haliburton, LaFarge, et. al.
That's a good thing, right?

That's what I've been saying all along!
I've seen it happen, and watched the joy in the locals eyes as their lives improved day after day. In the Balad area, they are no longer conscripted into the Saddam army under the threat of death to their entire family. Their crops are no longer burned, simply for spite. Their herds are no longer used for target practice, and their canals are no longer shut off just to punish them for made up infractions of Sharia law.
Despite all the made up conspiricies here, and the forever links to BS sites, Iraq is indeed getting better every day.
