Why al-Qaeda Lost the Hearts and Minds of Iraqis

A young Iraqi girl embraces Capt. Janet Rose assigned to the 431st Civil Affairs Battalion, at the Baqouba Women and Children's Hospital, June 9, 2007.

al-Qaeda only knows how to destroy. Not build hospitals, mosques, schools, improving the lives of ordinary Iraqi citizens.

From Bottomline Upfront (don't expect 32 consecutive frontpage NYTimes stories on pro-victory propaganda like these):




Someone show this to Code Pink and bleeding heart anti-war liberals who claim the mantle of championing humanitarian causes.

UPDATE:

This is commercial being shown on Iraqi television - you know, the kind of television that was banned under Saddam Hussein. For me, this makes what I and my fellow Soldiers did totally worth it.



Translation:
"We are Shias and Sunnis
Who gathers us is God and Mohammed
No Sunni No Shia
We have one goal
Stay together
God bless you all
Who separates us
is not from us"



Check out my cross-post at Flopping Aces for additional information that is worth knowing.

This, btw, is too good not to post here:



I first discovered Buck Sargent and this video 2 years ago, thanks to Hugh Hewitt.

Iraqi children are the future of their country. Let's hope they remember the kindness of U.S. soldiers. The images and the scenes of the children dancing in the video are priceless.

Let's see. Code Pink is Good, because they wear pink and scream a lot about peace. And the American military is Bad, because they kill babies.

Ummmm.... Yeah, that video must be fiction. It contradicts the Left's "reality."

Great post. Excellent video!

Thanks, we cannot see enough pictures like these. Pictures and stories like these leaking out, no thanks to the MSM, along with COde Pink's witches rallies, are the reason the anti-war movement is dying a slow death.

In some of the remote regions of Afghanistan the only medical care many children have ever received is courtesy of the American military.

And they might have medical care in Iraq, but not much and certainly not well supplied.

Thank goodness for the kind donations that make this possible.

Mike, your right. My brother did six months in Afghanistan as a surgeon. He said a lot of the time he treated locals.

Wonderul vids, Word. Thanks for bringing them today.

It's amazing how much our troops can do without causing one single harm. That concoction to treat the burns is truly incredible.
