OH MY GOODNESS, Where's her burka? That is going to piss off a lot of towel heads!

There are literally THOUSANDS of great pics like this pouring out of Iraq and you NEVER see any in the MSM. I wonder why? I guess the surge didn't work huh.

The Iraqi's clearly hate us. AA beat me to it, we have seen thousands of these pics over the years and the media ignores it. Doesn't fit their political agenda.

Mostly, my hat off to the troops that are making this as tolerable as possible for these kids. They have a rough time and these men and women are going above and beyond to help them.

Z makes a huge point when she states that they did not cover this. I rechecked and for sure they do not have it.

It is a wonderful picture with an equally wonderful story behind it.

It amazes me how blind so many are to the wonderful things a military does not only for their own nation, but for others and their nation.

What makes me angry is the lack of understanding and gratitude by so many in America.

Thank you for posting this heart warming and fact filled truth posting. We need to see more of this across the Internet.

Shalom
