I just love reading BS on certain websites and blogs. Take for instance the BGN (Bad Guy Network) Al Jazeera wweb site. Although one story told about a US F16 crashing today in Iraq the BGN told of course how it was shot down by them using small arms. Um guys, small arms and F16s just never meet. Something about a pointy nosed ass rocked going the sound of speed and a large slow AK round. Oh well we shouldnt be surprised.
For shits and grins though I would love to see the below on the BGN, but then again if they ran this info, every scumbag out there would have to remove it from their “favorite” on their computers.
47 countries’ have reestablished their embassies in Iraq ?
The Iraqi government currently employs 1.2 million Iraqi people?
3100 schools have been renovated, 364 schools are under rehabilitation, 263 schools are now under construction and 38 new schools have been built in Iraq ?
Iraq’s higher educational structure consists of 20 Universities, 46 Institutes or colleges and 4 research centers, all currently operating?

Iraq’s Air Force consists of three operational squadrons, which includes 9 reconnaissance and 3 US C-130 transport aircraft (under Iraqi operational control) which operate day and night,
and will soon add 16 UH-1 helicopters and 4 Bell Jet Rangers?
Iraq has a counter-terrorist unit and a Commando Battalion?
Iraqi Police Service has over 55,000 fully trained and equipped police officers?
Did you know that there are 5 Police Academies in Iraq that produce
over 3500 new officers each 8 weeks?
Did you know there are more than 1100 building projects going on in Iraq? They include 364 schools, 67 public clinics, 15 hospitals, 83 railroad stations, 22 oil facilities, 93 water facilities and 69
96% of Iraqi children under the age of 5 have received the first 2 series of polio vaccinations?
4.3 million Iraqi children were enrolled in primary school by mid October?
Did you know that there are 1,192,000 cell phone subscribers in Iraq and phone use has gone up 158%?
Iraq has an independent media that consists of 75 radio stations, 180 newspapers and 10 television stations?

OF COURSE WE DIDN’T KNOW! WHY DIDN’T WE KNOW? OUR MEDIA WOULDN’T TELL US!
Instead of reflecting our love for our country, we get photos of flag burning incidents at Abu Ghraib and people throwing thingss at the presidential motorcades. Tragically, the lack of accentuating the positive in Iraq serves two purposes:
It is intended to undermine the world’s perception of the United States thus minimizing consequent support, and it is intended to discourage American citizens and it succeeded.
