Thank Goodness for the Internet. . .

Take a look at Michael Totten’s Middle East Journal.  Things are looking up in Kurdistan.  Hat tip to Dustin at Lost in Leflar (link on blogroll).

I’m not saying that the media should ignore the 2 or 3 super-violent areas still full of battle and blood (as if that would ever happen anyway!), but it would be nice if they attempted–attempted–to present a comprehensive and balanced picture of Iraq to the American public.  Most people don’t have time to dig around on the Internet and do daily research to fill in the holes the mainstream media leaves in every story.  

When I read about the Kurds, who have been so horribly persecuted and are now rapidly achieving prosperity and peace, it pains me to imagine what will happen to them if the U.S. bails out of Iraq.  Just another cut-and-run betrayal.

  1. In fact, the Kurdish success story is in example of what can happen when the West sticks by its guns. Because it was enforcement of the No-fly Zones over the decade between the wars that enabled the Kurds to prosper while central Saddamland was in a state of…well, you choose the word. AS Hitchens notes, if the Kurds seem to have their act together while the Arabs do not, it is because they got a 12-year head start.

  2. People want peace and security, they just want it all for free. What really ticks me off is the fact that a large number of Americans actually hate their own country, while it is engaged in a conflict to protect their security and freedom. Sad, sad, sad…
