Good News From Iraq Part #6--What Left Media Doesn't Show You

As promised, the news from Iraq that you do not hear on CNN and from the left media.

You have to ask yourself, why the news outlets are so biased that they cannot bring themselves to show the world some of the good that comes from Iraq?

Our soldiers deserve to have their stories told, to have their accomplishments acknowledged, to be hailed as the heroes they are.

When I see a picture of our soldiers with the children of Iraq, the new generation of Iraq I understand they will understand democracy and they will be friends and allies of the US, because we helped them in their desire to be free of dictatorship.

There is more, some from Afghanistan that an be found here.

I think it is a pity that the left media in their desire to push their own agenda, refuses to acknowledge the good work, the brave accomplishments that our great soldiers are achieving in Iraq and in Afghanistan.

Do these people even care about our soldiers at all? Doesn't seem like it, does it? Otherwise they would be telling the American people of these types of accomplishments.
