David Warren on what is actually happening in Iraq (as opposed, sad to say, to what the BBC tells us is happening in Iraq): Iraq is blossoming economically and socially as it has not done in many, many decades of totalitarian rule. The infrastructure has been mostly repaired, and sabotage alone is the cause of failures. The signs of free speech and free press are everywhere. And most signally, the American and other troops trying to provide security are not merely tolerated, but popular.
The good news is that the media may not be able to sustain their 'quagmire' misreporting from Iraq much longer. The truth is beginning to get in their way.
