Good News From Iraq Part #14

Part 14 in the series and there is quite a bit. I will highlight a few of them here and put the link for the rest at the bottom of the post.

These are the faces of a young democracy.

Remember them. This is why we are fighting so hard. For the children.

These are the successes CNN won't show you.

11/11/06- BAGHDAD – 8th Iraqi Army Division forces, with coalition advisers, conducted a raid Nov. 11 near Suwayrah and captured the suspected leader of an insurgent cell responsible for attacks against Iraqi security forces. The cell leader is suspected of also being responsible for a car bomb attack in Suwayrah that killed at least nine and injured more than 50 Iraqi civilians.

The insurgent cell is thought to have also coordinated an attack which destroyed an Iraqi Army headquarters in Suwayrah.

Better to look for yourself, because the left media isn't going to show you the good that our soldiers do, or the sucess they have with their individual missions. The sucess stories aren't good enough to make the headlines for papers such as the New York Times or the Washington Post. It would not serve their political purposes to show you the full picture.

Have a good night everyone.
