Below is a link to a Blogger out of Iraq. It's worth a read.

Iraq the Model (http://iraqthemodel.blogspot.com/)

Some good news!
A group of Iraqi citizens in Al Karkh/ Khidr Al Yas arrested 6 Syrian terrorists who placed a land mine at the gate of Bab Al Mu’a dam bridge from Al Karkh side.

According to New Sabah newspaper, after a road side bomb exploded missing an American convoy that was patrolling in the area, a group of citizens who happened to be there noticed a bunch of young men who looked foreigners (turned out to be Syrians) that were gathering near the place and that looked suspicious. The citizens found their atittude very suspicious and they were not from the area, so they jumped on them and kicked them until some of them started to bleed and then turned them on to the American forces. Eyewitnesses said that the citizens were shouting “Terrorists. You are targeting our children and families. You are killing our youths”

This incident that took place near Haifa street comes after many attacks that terrorist Arabs were accused of carrying against American forces and Iraqi police stations

that is good news. Maybe some of that will spill over to Sadr City. How about a bunch of Iraqi Guardian Angels with whistles?

Jim, that blog and others are worth a couple headlines on any newspaper just to get away from the scord card of carnage. On the Family in Bagdad blog Faiza has a very positive story from a few months ago about a municipal water pipe being replaced. Then it was followed by her car-jacking so she's a little down right now.

that Falluja thing. It's interesting that the whole April Faluja siege was a WhiteHouse initiated and WhiteHouse terminated event. Conway, the Marine commander just recently described that sequence.

Speaking of the Faluja thing,,one of the intersting things about the newly trained Iraqi forces that disolved/refused to fight was that it was trained by a private business and not by/with US military the conseuquences being that there wasn't a cohesion between US/Iraqi forces and their hadn't been enough time to develop any.
