The Iraqi President states what I have been saying and it amazes me that a President from another country can see so clearly what some of our left of the aisle friends either refuse to see or simply will not acknowledge.
No one wishes to report the good news that comes from Iraq.
At the start of a week-long visit to France, Talabani rejected suggestions Iraq had descended into civil war and accused the media of focusing exclusively on negative stories.
"There is no civil war. The media is focusing only on the negative side of Iraq. ... We need to give the real picture. It's not just car bombs. Visit Iraq from the north to the south. Never mind Baghdad," he told reporters.
10/30/06- BAGHDAD A small group of Australian Defense Force people working in and around Baghdad are making a big difference to the progress of the Coalition in the rehabilitation and reconstruction of Iraq.
They are an unusual group in that they are embedded into elements of the Multi-National Force - Iraq headquarters, which is ran by the U.S., and with Americans and a number of other nationalities.
Based predominantly out of the Camp Victory's Al Faw Palace - with a number within the International Zone here - the reputations of these 27 Australians are held high throughout the Coalition. They are a mix of Army, Navy and Air Force commissioned and noncommissioned officers and their duties directly affect the outcomes of daily operations.

11/02/06- BAGHDAD, Iraq A Coalition air strike killed a terrorist leader and his driver Wednesday in Eastern Ramadi, diminishing the al-Qaeda in Iraq network.
Rafa Abdul Salam Hamud Al Ithawi, also known as Abu Taha, was the Emir of Shamiyyah. He frequently harbored foreign fighters who entered Iraq illegally in order to assault innocent Iraqis and Coalition Forces.
Precision laser guided munitions were used to destroy the vehicle carrying Abu Taha and his driver.
This and other recent operations in the region highlight the deliberate, methodical dismantlement of the al-Qaeda in Iraq network and those who contribute to its illegal actions.

There is good news coming from Iraq every single day and I ask what I have been asking since I started this series. Why does the elite media refuse to show the good news along with the bad? Why do the Democrats refuse to acknowledge the things our troops are accomplishing? Why do people get downright hostile when faced with pictures and facts contrary to their ascertain that everything is bad in Iraq? Finally, why do they not have the confidence in our troops to get the job done.
It isn't only Kerry that is disrespecting our troops, it is the Democratic politicians and left media and they are doing our soldiers an extreme disservice. Rarely do I hear people say thank you to our courageous men and women.
God Bless our troops because the American people on the left side of the aisle certainly wont.
