52% of Americans: there is progress in Iraq

Up from 39% last year. Hmm…

    The Iraqis know what it’s like in the rest of the world. They have the resources to get a piece of the good life. It looks as though they’ve been given the opportunity to have that. The democrats have been committed to failure in Iraq. If Iraq becomes successful the only ones that will have a problem with that are the islamofacists, the taliban and the democrats.

  2. Americans have been brainwashed by the Bush hating media. They won’t bother to read from embeds like Michael Totten or Michael Yon, both of whom travel extensively with the troops. They’d rather hear from correspondents stationed within the secured confines of the Green Zone.

    Some media outlets have stated, in no uncertain terms, that good news from Iraq are not profitable, so they don’t report it.

    Acually, recent news from Iraq has reached the point where even the BBC manages to report positive news. There *is* such a thing as facts too difficult to ignore, and now that bad news have become the routine, good news can be viewed as interesting for a change.

    Bad news sells, that much is true. But even bad news can grow tiresome and repetitive to the point where even the dullest knife in the drawer realizes that nothing new is being said.

  4. regardless of any good news, the Dems will continue to complain about the initial decision to invade Iraq, to this day selectively critical of the foreign policy challenges (and opportunities) that were present in 2002.

  5. To me, it’s startling that ONLY 52% agree with the statement “the US is making progress in Iraq”.

    How could the remainder not think that progress is being made? At least recently, at least for the time being; even if things might change in the future.

    It’s a damning indictment of the media. And it makes it so easy for AQ to win this war. At least the PR part of it. And, with an election coming up, the PR part trumps the military.

  6. Well, lesseee..

    The media mostly consists of Dumbocrats and Dumbocrats would like to install a regime similar to Saddam’s (who modeled his regime on Stalin’s) here, using “climate change” as a reason to rob us of our liberties and headed up by Algore.

    I’m a Russian immigrant and come to think of it, the Dumbocrats mostly consist of leftists who think that Stalin wasn’t “so bad”. The Gulags, the torture, the starvation of Ukraine are explained away by just claiming that it’s all “anti-communist propaganda”. So, given that Stalin wasn’t all that bad, Saddam probably wasn’t that bad either. The US, on the other hand, is just the devil incarnate. So, the removal of Saddam and the installment of a more liberal system is not progress. It’s exactly the opposite. Our troops actually winning battles complicates this fine balance, of course. Best to just not talk about that and hope for the worst/best.

    Aren’t the Dimocraps starting to remind you of petulant children in the back seat? “are we there yet, are we there yet?” Whinning and complaining about everything and everyone. Atleast God has a sense of humor, everytime Al Gore starts talking about global warming it snows.

  8. Good to see the public can look past the media’s clear left-wing bias. I read an article a month ago about funeral workers in Iraq being hit hardest by the lack of work. Forget good news that there’s less killing, they simply pushed the negative angle.
