This is an example...

...of why the folk in the bog are fans of the Celestial Junk Blog. The Junker doess it again...

It never ceases to amaze me how insidious the Mainstream Media’s power is in shaping our view of the world...

The fact that Iraq in the midst of the greatest economic boom in Middle Eastern history, where small business people (that’s ordinary civilians) are the benefactors is ignored. The fact that three cultural groups who’d rather be killing each other are working out mature and difficult compromises is ignored. The fact that poll after poll shows Iraqis to be more optimistic than North Americans, is ignored. The fact that the vast majority of Iraqis live without fear of violence, is ignored. The fact that the Kurdish north is now so secure that tourism is a major industry, is ignored. The fact that Iraqi forces are now in charge of many of Iraq’s major cities, without any coalition support, is ignored. The fact that Sunni’s are now fully part of the democratic process, is ignored. The fact that Iraq is the only Arab country to enjoy fully representative democracy, is ignored. The fact that Iraqis have rejected a theocracy, and opted for a compromise government, is ignored. The fact that American military re-enlistment rates are at an all time high, is ignored. The fact that American military morale in Iraq is very high, is ignored. The fact that terrorist activity in Iraq is steadily declining, is ignored. The fact that local tribal leaders within the Sunni triangle, in cooperation with Iraqi "resistance" fighters have organized to expel Osama’s thugs, is ignored.

Go and read the whole thing. The frog is having one of those days when everything that he wants to say has already been said with much more grace and eloquence the the Green Guy can muster.

Peace an all good,

The United States of America has done a good thing in invading Iraq and toppling Saddam Hussein from power.

That Iraq now suffers from those who oppose democracy for Arabs is never blamed on the enemies of freedom, but on those brave sons and daughters of America and Great Britain and the coalition of the willing, who brought the tyrant down.

Those Americans who supported the war can hold their heads high as free men and women do when they have done good.

Bravo Zulu!
