Destroyed Iraq's infrastructure? Not bloody likely...

New York City councilman Charles Barron looked like raving lunatic when he went up against me on Fox News Channel's Hannity & Colmes a few weeks ago.

Moonbat Barron tried to claim that the infrastructure of Iraq was destroyed by the US; that the nation of Iraq is far worse off now than it was under Saddam Hussain.

While we're talking about Iraq's infrastructure, let's talk about what the mainstream media, the Democrats on the Hill and the moonbats in the streets do not want you to know:

  • Over 4.5 million people have clean drinking water for the first time ever in Iraq.
  • Over 400,000 kids have up to date immunizations.
  • Over 1500 schools have been renovated and ridded of the weapons that were stored there so education can occur.
  • The port of Uhm Qasar was renovated so grain can be off loaded from ships faster.
  • School attendance is up 80% from levels before the war.
  • The country had its first 2 billion barrel export of oil in August.
  • The country now receives 2 times the electrical power it did before the war
  • 100% of the hospitals are open and fully staffed compared to 35% before the war.
  • Elections are taking place in every major city and city councils are in place.
  • Sewer and water lines are installed in every major city.
  • Over 60,000 police are patrolling the streets.
  • Over 100,000 Iraqi civil defense police are securing the country.
  • Over 80,000 Iraqi soldiers are patrolling the streets side by side with US soldiers.
  • Over 400,000 people have telephones for the first time ever.
  • Students are taught field sanitation and hand washing techniques to prevent the spread of germs.
  • An interim constitution has been signed.
  • Girls are allowed to attend school for the first time ever in Iraq.
  • Text books that don't mention Saddam are in the schools for the first time in 30 years.
  • That was written by a soldier who is there. In Iraq. Today.

    That doesn't sound like a country that is falling apart at the seams. That doesn't sound like a land that is worse off today than they were one, two or ten years ago.

    But the moonbats don't want you to know that.

    Why? Because it would make George W. Bush look good.

    Sure there are some negative things happening. But the media is choosing to use those incidents to overshadow the good.

    Thank you for this post. A person needs to hear the good things from time to time. :)

    The more important question is: how do you do a show with a guy like Barron without just leaping across the desk and throttling him? Or were you not in the same room?
