Is it any surprise then that more Iraqis believe they are on the right track than Americans do!… Iraqis: 43% say Iraq is going well while 17% of Americans say USA on right track.

In fact network news devoted to Iraq dropped 92% in the last year.
Finally– There is a strong voice out there that is starting to pound the Left on their abusive tactics and lies.

“Build a new Iraq. There’s an idea for you. One with a degree of personal freedom never known in the region. A nation of laws, not a nation of inherited power-holders, military dictators, and mad mullahs. A Tree of Liberty is planted in The Garden of Eden, by free people. They must still fight to build. Hopefully, the Iraqi people will do better about eliminating their internal enemies than we in America.”
