Ever since the testimony of General David Petraeus in September 07, people feel that there is a call for some guarded optimism in Iraq. Instapundit provides some information from Michael Yon which appears to be good news. Who knows if this will work or not but a functioning Democracy with respect to the rule of law and good sense would be a good thing.
That said, the MSM is dredging up an oldie but a goodie relative to the allegeded desecration of the Quaran. I think desecration of the Quaran is the only time the MSM is sensitive to someone's religious beliefs. I'm telling you this is definitely a multi front war. Reagan was able to keep the press in check due to his popularity in the 80's as he not only had to confront the Soviets, but all kinds of resistance from the press. Don't know if we have someone with that clout now.
