Thank you Kat!! I've been missing some good news!!
Anytime! We all need some!
And we can make up more fantasies any time. So lets just pretend it's going well and not pay any attention to what is really going on.
Bloody civil war is comming. I don't think much can stop it. I give it one, maybe two more months... and it could well start any day now.
Do you have anything to directly dispute what was stated?
Has healthcare availability not increased?
Were 6 new power stations not brought online?
Is infrastructure not being rebuilt?
Is there not plenty of humanitarian aid going into Iraq?
Is it not true what the soldiers are doing for the parks, schools & hospitals?
Are the police not being trained properly?
Please cite specific and direct proof to refute these claims and show us they are just 'fantasies' and that they are made up.
No, that is not the point. The few positive, and likely temporary "positive" changes in Iraq are overwhelmed by the negatives. The peace in Iraq is not going well. Putting on rose colored glasses is not going to change that.
WTF are you rambling about? The negatives are being reported by the minute. This was a roundup of the 'good things'. WTF is your point?
The point is these few "good things" are irrelevant. Giving them relevance is foolishness. They mean nothing if the peace is not secured, and secured soon, which it does not appear is going to happen.
I guess that should be the same here in America then, huh?
With all the immigration issues, murders, rapes, robberies, assaults, bankruptcy, prison problems.... There would be no need to ever mention the wonderful things that happen in our nation. I guess they're irrelevant since other problems currently exist.
Bottom line, good news from a country that is slowly rebuilding their infrastructure and building a democracy IS relevant. Acting as if they don't exist is what is foolish.
That's right wade. Intelligent people only focus on bad news, right? That way they can remain more balanced. Is this your theory? Actually your attitude skews your outlook and life and your very morality, because you lose your ability to discern between good and evil when you refuse to acknowledge the very notion of polarity.
