Funny if it weren't sad

I believe that one, if not the greatest, benefit of our efforts in Iraq is that it has almost completely diverted the attention of the fifth column, er, I mean, fourth estate in this country away from our activities in Afghanistan. I regret that I have to report that I firmly believe that if we were not in Iraq, our efforts in Afghanistan would have been severely hampered by the reflexive negativity of the main stream media. Perhaps, the media would have managed to turn the people against our Afghanistan effort as they have done with Iraq. As it is, however, I can thankfully report that we have done more to improve the lives of Afghanis in five years than has been done for them in the last 150.
