Good News from Iraq

Michael Yon, author of "Danger Close," is currently in Iraq, and he blogged, with many pictures about conditions in Dohuk, Northern Iraq

Here are some pictures from the University of Dohuk, whose motto is Where Education is the Transmission of Civilization

SGT_E blogged The war is over in Dohuk. After suffering perhaps a half century of fighting, the people have finally gotten peace they wanted long ago. With the old Iraqi government vanquished, Dohuk is thriving. In fact, this Iraqi city appears to be doing at least as well--perhaps remarkably better--than many comparably-sized towns in Italy. A visit to this place affords more than a break from the rugged routine of war. It also provides a postcard of a possible future for all of Iraq. Coalition military presence in the region is scant, and those who travel here come mainly for shopping, or to relax and drink tea with friendly Iraqis, who often will not allow Americans to pay.

Hat Tip to Chris Greenfeather

Why doesn't the MSM report things like this

The paragraph above that appears on my blog is a direct quote from Michael Yon's dispatch regarding this subject. I don't want anyone to misconstrue the above comment as my own, although I wholeheartedly agree with it.
