Some facts about Iraq (in case you wondered)

Of course we didn't know. How could we?

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?

25 Iraq students departed for the United States in January 2005 for the reestablished Fulbright program?

Iraqi Navy is operational? They have 5- 100-foot patrol craft, 34 smaller vessels and a naval infantry regiment.

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?

5 Police Academies in Iraq that produce over 3500 new officers each 8 weeks?

More than 1100 building projects are going on in Iraq? They include 364 schools, 67 public clinics, 15 hospitals, 83 railroad stations, 22 oil facilities, 93 water facilities and 69 electrical facilities.

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?

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?

2 candidates in the Iraqi presidential election had a televised debate recently?


Instead of reflecting our love for our country, we get photos of flag burning incidents at Abu Ghraib and people throwing snowballs at the
presidential motorcades.

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.
