From the doomsday messages repeated daily about conditions in Iraq in the MSM; to the caterwauling of Democrats who opportunistically voted for the war but now regret for the same opportunistic reasons--the American public never gets to see pictures like this from Iraq the Model. [Check out his site for more celebratory pictures of Eid in Baghdad.]
It's amazing! People laughing, familes having a good time at an amusement park with rides and entertainment--in the middle of Baghdad!
When coalition forces raid a house used by terrorists it becomes the big news of the day and is consistently used to show Iraq as a hole of hell but when coalition forces help Iraqis build an amusement park that serves a city with population of over 500,000 so that families can spend a good time, no one talks about it...
Thanks, Omar, for sharing this.
