http://www.mnf-iraq.com/ You will find that our news is not reporting any of this, I hope people go read. Many things are going on in Iraq, and it's really good to see more of what is going on. Look at the bottom of the page and see "Press Releases" and click "more", so much going on.I had no clue just how much was going on based on what all our news networks reporting has been. Also to clerify, they post the bad stuff as well, so it's not some propaganda site. And I did not post this for an all out debate, or to argue, thanks. You all can if you like, but some info to whom ever is concerned, and stuff they don't tell about from the regular news networks. _________________ Support the troops ___________________________________________________________________________________ No link for this at the moment, they used a pdf fille.This is from a different site from the post above. Water Sector Capacity Development A TA Soldier’s Reconstruction Story Provincial Reconstruction Teams Preservation Visit to an Ancient City DoD Reconstruction Partnership Gulf Region Division Project Dispatches CERP Project Update…As of Mar. 27, 5,816 Commander’s Emergency Response Program (CERP) projects have been completed out of 7,065 planned. CERP is a program originally unique to Iraq that was established to give U.S. military commanders the ability to respond to urgent humanitarian relief and reconstruction requirements within their areas of responsibilities by carrying out programs that will immediately assist the Iraqi people and support the reconstruction of Iraq. Primary Health Clinic Completed…The Al Nahrawan primary health care clinic project located in Diyala Province has been completed. The clinic will provide quality basic medical care for approximately 100 patients per day. Electrical Generation Update…Completed Gulf Region Division generation projects have provided an additional 1,420MW of potential generation capacity to Iraq’s national grid. At the end of the program, the projects will have added 1,879 MW of potential generation capacity, which can serve an estimated 1.7 million homes. All USG agencies’ projects will add or restore a total of 2,555MW at the end of the program. Underground Distributors Benefit Baghdad Province…The installation of new 11kV underground distributors from the Jadrai to Arasat substations in Karadah, Baghdad Province, has increased reliability of electricity to 65,000 local residents. Water Projects Completed…Six water projects were completed in various towns in Al Anbar Province on this week. Combined, they will supply fresh water for over 36,000 people. School Update…GRD has completed 99% of planned school renovations. Under Iraq Relief & Reconstruction Fund, 808 school renovations have been completed to date and one is under construction. Under the Development Fund for Iraq program, 88 additional school renovations are complete. These projects will provide improved school facilities for over 350,000 students. On Mar. 19, the Zakros Ali School was completed in Kirkuk Province. In 2006, medical care improved in Iraq with the renovation of 15 hospitals. Each completed facility sees approximately 500 patients per day for a total of 11,000 patients nationwide
Almost all news in the US only shows whats critical; deaths from the past days/weeks/months, any meetings, and such. I dont even think they want to tell any good news about whats going on in Iraq unless it has to do with their government or the US government's involvement. I'm very pleased that good things like this are happening, this is a sign that some places are going in the right direction of peace.

"Iraqi Police reach out to communities through security, presence Not only have the Iraqi Police been successful in securing key areas, they’ve also reached out to local communities through public gatherings."
"Giant cache complex, explosive factory found during search for troops The cache complex contained eight 155 mm artillery rounds, three 130 mm artillery rounds, a 120 mm artillery round, 850 mortar fuses, 7 rocket propelled grenade launchers with five sighting assemblies, 34 RPG boosters, 46 RPG warheads, 1000 12.7 mm heavy machine gun rounds, 4000 14.5 mm heavy machine gun rounds, and 200 25 mm anti-tank rounds.
Also found were a 122 mm rocket, 1000 9 mm rounds, six hand grenade fuses, 17 fragmentary hand grenades, 205 30 mm anti-aircraft artillery rounds, 60 57 mm anti-aircraft artillery rounds, two 2.75 mm rockets, 215 blasting caps, 1000 small arms ammunition primers, 500 shotgun rounds, 1000 feet of detonation cord, 7400 7.62 mm machine gun rounds, a 40 mm high explosive grenade, various small arms and sub machine gun magazines, eight pre-cut lengths of wire (presumably used as IED initiators) and five former regime Iraqi army helmets."
"Good Neighbor Plan: Locals stash dangerous cache, rid streets of weapons, munitions Multi-National Division – Baghdad
To their surprise, the cache was not found in an insurgents hiding area, but in a large container left by Coalition Forces to be used as an amnesty box. The container was empty when the unit departed the area, and local residents started stock-piling munitions they found on the streets or within their neighborhood"
"Local citizens turn in extremists “The people are getting tired of the terrorists’ continued violence, realizing the terrorists wish to bring nothing but destruction and harm to their families and their villages,” said Col. David W. Sutherland, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division commander and senior U.S. Army officer in Diyala province. “They will not be swayed by the terrorists’ actions and are beginning to turn to the security forces for help as they recognize the ISF are the true protectors of their country."" _____________________________________________________ And that is an extremely small sample of what is going on, of wich our news has reported NONE !!!.
Seems like CNN is getting a little better, oddly enough.I used to like Chris Mathews "Hardball" but his jibber jabber is very telling these days and has an axe to grind, all of msnbc is a bit to blatently biased left. I would ask all people here, even if you hate bush or disagree with the war, or anyone.Is see if you can post that link around places up there, I feel this is all I can do to counter the mainline media, and the more help to get ALL reports known, is a good thing for all.
A few cool reports out of Iraq, check out that third link. Multi-National Force - Iraq - Farmer now serves Ramadi as policeman Multi-National Force - Iraq - Security in northern Iraq aids economic opportunities Multi-National Force - Iraq - Sadoun Street receives facelift in Baghdad
Go check out todays stuff, Woman? Police? Must be different up north in Iraq. http://www.mnf-iraq.com/ "First women graduate from Kirkuk police academy"
Older one, but had to post this pic. you all should be checkin this Iraq stuff out. ! http://www.mnf-iraq.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=12064&Itemid=1 "Sadoun Street receives facelift in Baghdad."

It's nice to read some good news for a change. I am especially glad to read that citizens are starting to finger terrorists now.
Also don't get me wrong as I don't think and believe that it's a vacation over there.But that website reports all the bad stuff as well. Our news only gives the enemy headlines and is not right. The only way around this as I can see.Is, if there are no car bombs to report our news won't have anything to report. Then mabye people will start to wonder, and think somthing is fishy.They won't even give our troops the benifet of what they have done, very strange, and very wrong. Not even Foxnews , like what the hell is going on with our media.!
Seeing as how I can't edit the first post anymore.(or last) This is the link to all the reports. http://www.mnf-iraq.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=category§ionid=1&id=4&Itemid=128
had double post, edited.
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

lol I know and met servicemen, and I have my own common sense to know that american news is censored(depeding on the channel, and its affiliation/agenda) And to know that not everything comes through anyways. My War Diaries shows ALOT of great stuff btw :)

Gosh you would think that by reading the main stream news here in America that no progress is being made. Although it makes sense when you think that most news these days is bias, seems their agenda is making it seem like we haven't accomplished anything. Oh well the liberal media strikes again.

there's no such thing as the liberal media. The only widely distributed media with a liber bias is NPR. Fox is uber-right, CNN is slightly right of center, and NBC is center. You're bitching about the nature of new. They will always provide the most shocking and troubling news, because it attracts the most viewers. Rarely they will show good stuff, either to draw a different niche or round out the story. Of course there are good things coming out of Iraq. It just happens that the good is vastly outweighed by the bad.
GuineaPigthere's no such thing as the liberal media. The only widely distributed media with a liber bias is NPR
Though National Public Radio gets bias accuses from both sides of the spectrum, I wouldn't say that it's liberal nor conservative. It just tells news that interest the people most and if it happens to be about casualties in the Iraq war, it necessarily doesn't say that the channel is liberal. Nevertheless the media in general should tell stories from both sides of the isle, especially in the case of Iraq war. Multi-National Force - Iraq seems to be good news source in this aspect.
Heaven's gonna burn your eyes
16th April 2005
Another thing I've enjoyed watching is the Hometown Baghdad series, a bunch of short documentary clips on Youtube focussing on three young middle class Baghdad residents, filmed by a crew or themselves.
It gives an insight on daily life, without the media at all. There's about an hour's worth of videos now, at YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
And the MNF-Iraq should be expected to give positive news on Iraq. Use it to strike a balance with other sources.
