Subject:? Why aren't we told this?

How Could? We Know? I didn't know! You didn't know! How could we? know?

Did you know? that 47 countries' have reestablished their embassies? in Iraq? ?

Did you? know that the Iraqi government currently employs 1.2 million Iraqi? people ?

Did you? know that 3100 schools have been renovated, 364 schools are under? rehabilitation, 263 new schools are now under construction and 38 new? schools have been completed in Iraq? ?

Did you? know that Iraq 's higher educational? structure consists of 20 Universities, 46 Institutes or colleges and? 4 research centers, all currently? operating?

Did you? know that 25 Iraq? students departed for the United State s in January 2005 for the? re-established Fulbright program ?

Did you know? that the Iraqi Navy is operational ? They have 5 - 100-foot patrol? craft, 34 smaller vessels and a naval infantry? regiment.

Did you? know that Iraq 's Air Force consists of? three operational squadrons, which includes 9 reconnaissance and 3? US C-130 transport aircraft (under Iraqi operational control)? which operate day and night, and will soon add 16 UH-1 helicopters? and 4 Bell Jet Rangers ?

Did you know? that Iraq has a counter-terrorist? unit and a Commando Battalion?

Did you? know that the Iraqi Police Service has over 55,000 fully trained and? equipped police officers?

Did you? know that there are 5 Police Academies in Iraq? that produce over 3500 new officers each 8? weeks?

Did you? know there are more than 1100 building projects going on? in Iraq ? They include 364? schools, 67 public clinics, 15 hospitals, 83 railroad stations, 22? oil facilities, 93 water facilities and 69 electrical facilities.

Did you? know that 96% of Iraqi children under the age of 5 have received the ?first 2 series of polio vaccinations?

Did you? know that 4.3 million Iraqi children were enrolled in primary school by? mid October?

Did you? know that the Baghdad Stock Exchange opened in June of? 2004?

Did you? know that 2 candidates in the Iraqi presidential election had a televised debate recently? OF COURSE WE DIDN'T KNOW! WHY DIDN'T WE? KNOW? YOUR NEWS MEDIA REFUSES TO TELL US! Instead of reflecting our? love for our country, we get photos of flag burning incidents at Abu? Ghraib and people throwing snowballs at the presidential motorcades.? Tragically, the lack of accentuating the positive in Iraq? serves three two major purposes of the liberal news? media:

1.? It is intended to undermine the world's perception of the? United States thus? minimizing consequent? ? support,? and:

2.? It is intended to discourage American citizens and erode their support for the war.

3.? It is intended to help the Democratic Party gain more power in the next elections.

---- All? the above facts are verifiable on the Department of Defense web site." _http://www.defenselink.mil/_ (http://www.defenselink.mil/)

Pass it? on! Give it wide? dissemination.

Probably because nobody can sort them out of that bizarre writing "style".

Because our lazy President (whom I voted for twice) is both incapable of articulating this to the American people through the media headwind (though other Presidents have been able to get their message out he is too incompetent at putting words together), and too complacent to hire someone who can!

This Administration has been the worst in my 64-year old history in using PR to their advantage.

They do not understand the word "proactive," ONLY "reactive."

Small wonder that W's numbers are so low and the majority is turning against the war.

This article is nothing but stink'n facts. All positive developments, but I don't want to hear or read good news.

lalalalalalalalalalala...My eyes are closed and I can't hear you.

The demonRATs are in their usual denial mode.

In Iraq, if it's not blowing up or bleeding, don't show it or talk about it.
