Note to the MSM
Read this and weep for the customers you have lost or alienated.
A 28 year old local understands what the MSM seemingly cannot understand.
That rather than civil war in an uncivilized Arab backwater, we have instead a proxy war being fought for the future of Iraq. That the "insurgents" the MSM seems to cheerlead on with every atrocity are not Iraqis, and they fight for nothing but the future of Iran and the Mullahs and Despots in Syria.
But then, if they told you that, it would be tantamount to an admission that Bush might have been right, that the war involves far more than Iraq, and indeed it is for the very soul of the West. If we lose in Iraq, make no mistake, our enemies will see nothing but victory in their path, and frankly, they would be right.
Sunni vs. Shiite, or rather, Iran vs. Iraq?

Hussein* is back in the bureau this week, looking genial even though he’d just buried his cousin. His young cousin was one of the twenty-odd people killed in a bombing in Hurriya, in northwestern Baghdad, last week.
We learned the news while working late on a Nightly News story the night of the bombing. Hussein rang us to say he was in Kadhimiya Hospital, where he had just seen the remains of his cousin.
