Violence continues to go down in Iraq. Now down another 70% from the already lower rates in July. The security over the entire country is remarkably improved. To put things in perspective the civilian deaths amidst a war zone have fallen to 38% BELOW the murder rate in the United States. That’s right, more people are murdered here than are dying in the war in Iraq.
But don’t worry, the media will ignore most such stories as good news = no news.
“One item from Baghdad today. The news is… that there is no news. The police told us that, to their knowledge, there were no major acts of violence. Attacks are down in Baghdad and today no bombings or roadside explosions were reported.” – Charlie Gibson World News Tonight on ABC Oct 17th.
