Tragically, the lack of accentuating the positive in Iraq? serves three two major purposes of the liberal news? media:

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.

Pass it? on! Give it wide? dissemination.
This is great! Bookmarked and BUMPED!
In case you ran out. ?????
In case you ran out. ?????
The liberals have vested in our defeat.
OKay!? Thanks for? posting???!?
Probably because nobody can sort them out of that bizarre writing "style".
Thank you for the post.
Pinged Bookmarked and ??????
Just in case u need a few more
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!
Bookmark? For later?
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.
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.
had to get that out the way.
The MSM does not report news that benefits conservatives.
Err...what the heck!?????????

Ah, there you go!
Thanks much. Email around.
“Why aren’t we told this???”
Because Vladimer Putin runs our country. Who did you think ran it - George Bush?
“why aren’t we told this?”
because the fifth column is active in the United States of America and because the fifth column is believed to be the ultimate, intellectual, brilliant, all-knowing, greatest, smartest group of people in the entire world.
Here is a URL that will take you to the US Agency for International Develoment-one of the lead agencies for foreign aid projects (non-military).
Once there, click on the updates on the lower right-you will find detailed summaries of the projects we have done, who got paid what for the work etc.
The media/left does not care about freedom, other than to limit it and to achieve the lowest common denominator in terms human freedom. That is the key reason the US is so hated around the world-even though our personal freedoms are limited, as a nation we are the most free and most self-determined ever. If you doubt that there is a great conspiracy a foot, well, you will always wonder why the light does not penetrate the darkness.
It is called good vs evil. Always has been.
Great read. Thanks for posting. We're just having fun with you. :)
I liked the ?’s.... Besides poster is dead on. We are never told anything good about Iraq because the media are intent on America electing a Liberal.
Hey if all of the bad stuff W's fault why can't the good stuff be Allegra's "fault".
Sounds like a model country for the rest of the middle-east to emulate.
Bingo! Right on target.
Because the Bush White House is the most inept disseminator of such news around?
Thanks so much for sharing this.
Save to share with those who don’t want to know.
Great job! Bookmarked!
Did you know that millions of Americans who are opposed to socialism in America are being heavily taxed to pay for this massive socialist project in a foreign country?
So true. Especially during the second term, their PR has become absolutely pathetic. There are many ways to get around a media committed to oppose you. They did a good job for about three years. 2004 was so-so, and 2005-2008 have been just terrible.
I don't get it, because facts like this are just not that hard to get out given today's internet and alternative media. Reagan did a great job of this w/o the benefit of today's more diverse media.

You killed one.
Thanks for reminding us that there are other viewpoints however erroneous.
All your ? are belong to us?
Because actually it took several reorganizations and changes in military leadership before there were real positives of this kind. Counterinsurgency is much more than killing bad guys. It is creating the circumstances where the local community sees their lives as being substantially better because you are there; it is making sure that you don't create new bad guys faster than you kill off the old ones, and if you are really good, bad guys begin to realize that their lives will be a lot better if they cooperate and they become good guys.
We had to get the neocon politicals out and get genuine professionals in before this could happen. It is embarassing that Republicans were as bad as democrats are. Political loyalty and working on a compaign are no subsitute for knowing what you are doing.
You got that right.
This Administration has been totally incompetent in fighting the PR war against the media. He should have been pounding details like this list from DAY 1.
Naked stupidity... and it comes from the fact that this administration is totally out of touch with the average American. Congress is as well.
It’s Allegra’s fault.
I thought I was going to get positive news from that post... and all I got was Question(marks).
This is what!? Captain James T. Kirk’s writing!? must!? look like!?
Can you explain why our President has not enumerated these gains in talking to the American people? President Reagan would have done so.
