Eeyore strikes again at the New York Times 
Who else but Eeyore the Editor, on this historic and overwhelmingly successful day, could write something like this?

The mood on the streets of many Iraqi cities, even in Shiite areas, appeared markedly less enthusiastic than on Jan. 30, when millions of Iraqis braved an onslaught of violence to cast ballots and celebrate in a vast outpouring of pro-democratic sentiment.

On Saturday in Baghdad, streets were noticeably bare of pedestrians, polling centers were less busy, and voters exhibited little enthusiasm.

Talk about tunnel vision! Talk about missing the forest for the trees!

Last January, there were 347 attacks on the Iraqi people on election day. Yesterday, there were 13.

And all the Times can do is recycle the "no water, no power complaints." Well gee. Who's fault is it they don't have power in Baghdad today?

If the Iraqis walked on water tomorrow, the New York Times would be criticizing the U.S. for not teaching them to swim.

Splash, out


Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
