Does anybody know why the media insists on showing ALL the negative aspects of the rebuilding of Iraq. How many people have seen the endless acts of kindness by the coalition and the sincere appreciation of the Iraqi people. The Iraqi people are very strong and courageous to be going through these tough times, but they do it because they know that all the tough times are worth the future of their children. How can we deny this? How many times have you watched the news and seen a U.S. soldier playing soccer with Iraqi children, or sitting down chatting and having a cup of tea with an elder??? Or how many times have you seen headlines like: "EXPLOSIONS ROCK BAGHDAD!!" or "SUPPLY CONVOY AMBUSHED!!"??? Why does the media insist on showing only the tradgedies that are occuring. Does this not undermine the effort?? Is this how the Iraqi people should be represented?? How is this affecting morale of the coalition?? You all are supposedly for peace yet all you can do is focus on the bloodshed.
