Another Iraqi Unit Stands Up

From the official Operation Iraqi Freedom website

Iraqi forces took control of another area of Baghdad on Monday after the latest in a series of transfer of authority ceremonies near the capital.

Army Col. Claude Ebel, commander of the 2nd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division said responsibility for Forward Operating Base Mahmudiyah South, a base of operations for security forces south of the capital, was transferred to the 4th Brigade, 6th Iraqi Army Division, dubbed the Desert Lion Brigade. The Iraqi unit will have full responsibility for the Baghdad areas of Mahmudiyah and Rutifiyah, Ebel said.

The ceremony, which included a demonstration of Iraqi military capability and martial prowess, comes as joint Coalition and Iraqi operations continue to rid the capital of death squads and insurgent violence.

“They’re a superb unit. They’re the most developed unit since we first arrived,” Ebel said of the Iraqi brigade.

So, wait a minute. You mean progress is being made in Iraq? Why in the heck hasn't this made the news? It's like the Big Media only wants Americans to hear bad news from Iraq.

    We have to keep them busy outside the usa. Please wake up America. I hear on the news that we should spend the money here to keep them out. Least we forget the best defense is a good offense. Make no mistake they are coming here with one thought that is to kill americans. 90 % of the Iraqi people are honest hardworking good family people if we leave they will not know the life that you and i have they will only know pain and suffering that plaged them for the last 30 years. You can play coach all you want about the war. The bottom line is they have not attacked here since 9/11.
