America Should Be Celebrating Iraqi Freedom Victory, Media Silent
It's embarrassing and disgusting how the partisan media and as a result Americans in general are ignoring the huge victory being celebrated across Iraq. We should be celebrating for them.... with them, instead the US government democrat ministry of information (news media) is silent.
Silent at a time when millions are free because of American blood, sweat, time and money... silent when they should be shouting "freedom rings" from every headline. No, Americans are too busy worrying about themselves and how bad things are in America and how America needs to be rebuilt and fixed.
Like I said... disgusting and embarrassing.
CNN has this... "Historic Moment in Iraq Marked by Little Fanfare, Mixed Feelings"
The so-called "little fan-fare" is the reaction by the White House and his government run media machine... (like CNN for one example) and average Americans who don't know about VICTORY IN IRAQ. The "mixed feelings" refer to Iraqi's who DON'T want the Americans to leave although CNN wonders just who the innocent Iraqis could be afraid of if the "evil murdering, torturing" Americans are not there killing innocent Iraqis.
"Baghdad resident Hanaa Abdul Hassan told CNN she feels "fear and horror."
"Without the Americans, we were afraid of each other, and now that the Americans are leaving, we will be more afraid. We knew the Americans were holding them back, so now I don't know what's going to happen," she said, without specifying who "they" were." -CNN
Top US Commander: Iran is Behind most Attacks in Iraq
"Iran is still supporting, funding and training surrogates who operate inside of Iraq. They have not stopped and I don't think they will stop," Odierno told reporters at the U.S. military headquarters outside Baghdad. "I think many of the attacks in Baghdad are from individuals that have been in fact funded or trained by the Iranians."
Odierno said the attacks were mainly indirect fire—a term usually reserved for mortars, rockets and artillery—and EFP's. That last weapon, also known as an explosively formed penetrator, is designed to attack armored vehicles such as Humvees and is among the main killers of U.S. troops in Iraq. U.S. officials have said the main component of the EFP is manufactured in Iran.
Odierno directly implicated groups supported by Iran in recent rocket attacks against the walled-off Green Zone in central Baghdad.
"Those are being done by groups that have been trained in Iran, been funded by Iran. Usually their leaders are still in Iran and they have surrogates doing operations in Iraq," he said.

June 30th is "National Sovereignty Day" in Iraq ! (Victory)
"Iraqi government TV has been playing patriotic music to celebrate the U.S. military withdrawal from cities, towns and villages across the country, officially set to be completed by Tuesday June 30th.
Iraqi military vehicles were also covered with flowers to celebrate the event, and military parades, complete with band music, were organized in Diyala and Diwania provinces.
The government declared a “Day of National Sovereignty” to mark the event, and has invited ordinary citizens to join evening celebrations at Baghdad’s Zawra Park for a festival of music and poetry.
Interior Minister Jawad Boulani told journalists the U.S. withdrawal is almost complete and Iraqi forces are capable of maintaining order across the country.He says he believes Iraq’s security situation is under control. “I do not think we need to declare a curfew,” he said.
Mission Accomplished America, ....congratulations to Iraqis everywhere and thank you to our brave men and women in uniform.... and to George W Bush for having the courage and the faith and the dedication to overcome.
