Breaking News! Something Good Actually Happened in Iraq!

Iraqis Help Soldiers Find Bombs; Stolen Child Recovered

The real truth is that this kind of "good stuff" happens every day, hundreds of times.Every time a Navy Corpsman treats a local kid for an infected cut or immunizes a whole village against malaria.

You hear all about the homes that were destroyed during "the war." Ever hear about how many homes we've rebuilt? How many modern apartment buildings are currently under construction, providing not only new homes, but jobs?

It just bugs me how excited people get when they hear a snippet of good news. It shouldn't be so exceptional, but it is. Grrrr.
