So Where Are The Headlines?

I just wanted to expand on the new release Jim posted below regarding the transfer of security responsibility in Karbala Province to the Iraqis.

The United States and Multi-National Force-Iraq welcome the transfer of security in Karbala Province to Iraqi responsibility as a positive step on the path to Iraq’s self-reliance.

Karbala is the eighth province to be transferred to Iraqi security responsibility as the Government of Iraq and its security forces continue to develop and assume greater responsibility for governing and providing security for the citizens of Iraq. The first province transferred to Government of Iraqi security control was Muthanna in July 2006, followed by Dhi Qar, An Najaf, Maysan, and most recently Irbil, Sulaymaniyah, and Dahuk in May 2007.

In a perfect world where the news media were actually pulling for their own country rather than trying to undermine it, this would be splashed all over the front pages. But...have you seen it anywhere else? This is what they and their Democrat handlers keep saying they want, isn't it? So where are the accolades for our military and our President? Hear those crickets?

They are not going to do it, so President Bush and his staff need to start touting their successes a lot more. Most people don't even know this positive stuff is going on, they still believe the press and the Democrats that we're *losing*. We are NOT, despite the best efforts of the Left.

I still say it is our military and their victories that is going to carry the day for the Republicans in 2008.
