Iraq Achieves Yet Another Milestone, Media Yawns

Not that it is important in any way, but this happened over the weekend:

IRAQ'S Parliament finally approved a new national unity government on Saturday, ending months of deadlock...

Of course, this is another one of those non-milestones that isn't really of interest to the American people except as, perhaps, a back-page story to fill space not bought up by advertisers. Hardly worth mentioning at all really, unless, as this report shows, it just serves as a vehicle to remind us all how none of these milestones matter: bomb attacks that killed 24 people served a grim reminder of the security challenges it will face.

I swear, if peace were to break out all over Iraq tomorrow, the antique media would find some way to paint it as a negative development. Regardless, the formation of a unity government is yet another in an endless string of goals accomplished that the left said would never come to fruition.

Thank goodness the Iraqi's don't pay much attention to the American media. It is the only place left that al Qaeda is winning the war. One need only refer to their own correspondence to determine that to be true.

Al Qaida in Iraq attacks Mosques and other public places to draw media attention...

One can only hope that America's Negative Nancy's will also take the time to read "The Real Iraq," to get a picture of the war that our media simply refuses to show.
