My gut feeling is when her generation grows up, her tale will be of gratitude and respect for the Americans. In time, the actions of George W. Bush will do more for relations between us and the Mideast region than any 'taking' could ever do.

note: the stick of gum in her little hand.

Another great one! I like that one of the shot from over the coalition soldier's shoulder with the two kids on the ground, one looking off to the right, the other smaller one looking up at the soldier with BIG huge eyes filled with awe and surprise.

Iraqi boys in a village near the city of Najaf in Central Iraq appear glad to be back in school April 4, for the first time since the war started. U.S. Army soldiers from the 422nd Civil Affairs Battalion helped clean up the school that was damaged by artillery fire. The soldiers also took money out of their own pockets to pay the teacher several months salary in advance. U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Kevin P. Bell

These kids are probably getting a better education than our kids. They're being taught by the enlightened and understand truth.

Our kids are still held hostage by the minions of the NEA...

The sickening thing is that the New York Times has not shown a single smiling Iraqi celebration photo the past two days.

Part of my job here at the newspaper I work for is to select photos. There have been HUNDREDS of different Iraqi celebration shots on the AP/Reuters Merlin PhotoDesk. And the NYT has made a conscious, deliberate decision to NOT PUBLISH THEM.

What a piece of sh*t Howell Raines is.

You know, I am just beginning to realize something. I have spent the last few weeks praying for the safety of our troops. The expressions on those faces tells me that the Iraqi people have been praying for them too. Our troops are the answer to their prayers!

God, it feels good to be an American today!

Earlier this morning, it was noted that our guys emptied a Children's prison. Imprisoned because they wouldn't join the local 'Saddam fan club, (my definition). Our guys did that!

You means that Raines guy would not allow any of these photos to see the light of day?
