    Good News Watch

    Blogger Arthur Chrenkoff has an excellent, and long, roundup of good news from Iraq, along with links. Here's a very brief summary:

    Several parts of the country are already holding local elections.


    Iraqis are wealthier, and their health and education systems are better.


    Iraq's culture is undergoing a revival. The national soccer team beat Saudi Arabia for a place in the Olympics, Kurdish music albums are selling big, and the Marsh Arabs are coming back and restoring the environment that Saddam Hussein wrecked.


    Reconstruction is going well.


    Outside Fallujah and some parts of the south, the security situation is good.


    Nine Iraqis whose hands Saddam's regime amputated are getting prosthetic ones thanks to American volunteers, as our Dan Henninger noted last week.


    Other Middle Eastern countries are beginning to make reformist noises.
    The really pathetic thing is that there are Americans who view all this as bad news because they'd rather see Iraq fail than President Bush succeed.

    That's sort of presumptive. It's nice to here good news coming out of Iraq, but every news program I watched today had pretty ominous reports.
