« Kofi Annan Blathers On | Main | Leaks, and the leaking leakers who leak them ... »
The Dissident Frogman, an excellent bilingual blog, has an outstanding post about what's happening in Iraq, and how little of this gets out via the traditional, "independent" media:
At the risk of repeating myself, I heard almost daily on France-Info's broadcast: "Yet another US casualty in Iraq."
The Coalition is wiping out Saddam's SS and the Al-Qaeda skuzzballs by the hundreds.
I never heard : "Yet another hundred of SS and terrorist skuzzballs eliminated in Iraq."
The Coalition has completed 13,000 reconstruction projects, including 1,500 schools as of October the first -- and I'll assume this number includes the 330 that were rebuilt by the 101st Airborne with Saddam's money -- and "the teachers earn from 12 to 25 times their former salaries."
I never heard: "Yet another school rebuilt and reopened in Iraq."
There are 240 hospitals and more than 1200 clinics open, a pharmaceutical distribution that has gone from nothing to 700 tons in May and a current total of 12,000 tons - even though the supposedly "essential", "humane" and "brave" subsidy-eating NGOs prefered to bravely take off. 22 millions of vaccination doses where nonetheless administered to the children of Iraq.
I never heard: "Yet another hospital opened in Iraq."
