Half a Glass of Water in Iraq?
A convergence of thoughts today:
On TV, they are showing Hamid Karzai being sworn in as president of Afghanistan. This is quite a feat, considering the state of things in Central Asia just three short years ago. I commented to my family that four years from now, as GWB retires, this triumph will long be forgotten in the shadow of Iraq.
Now, as I am on-line, I'm looking at a poll on Netscape.com:
The poll questions whether GWB is misleading Americans on the Iraq situation.
The choices are:
1 - Bush needs to be more realistic
2 - Optimism is needed
3 - I don't know
Well,...I'm sure that last one is making the MSM jump for joy. More idiots upon which to dump liberal, one-world ideology.
How realistic does Bush have to be? If it weren't for the CNN (UNN), MSNBC, NPR crowd distorting every action in Iraq, we wouldn't be having polls like this.
I guess the optimism needed is optimism that MAYBE we'll hear more stories about the schools being built in Iraq. Or about the empty homes in Fallujah, evacuated before the latest assault, that were stocked with blankets for the American/British soldiers. Or that up in the Kurdish North, people of varying ethnic backgrounds get along just fine.
