    On another thread Yurt brought up how the terror attacks are slowing down the rebuilding. I agreed that where there were the attacks, things are moving at a slower pace than would be wished. Yet, as Comrade noted this morning, Iraq's economy is growing at over a 50% rate. Here one can find some of the reasons why:

    There is so much in that article that Americans would be interested in reading--and would read if it were available to them. Too bad the MSM has its own agenda and will only report on things that make the WOT look like a disastrous adventure. If the MSM were really smart, they would start looking around for articles like this to increase their ratings and gain back some of their lost credibility.

    I was reading this on Chrenkoff's site before it was picked up by the WSJ. He still puts it on his own, but the WSJ at least helps get the word out!
