Freedom's Fidelity

Apparently Afghans and Iraqis aren't paying much attention to American media sources or defeatist politicians. If they were, they would know that they are knee deep in an unwinnable quagmire under the oppressive thumb of an imperialistic America who is just waiting for the right moment to steal all the oil and pump it out of Iraq via the pipeline that they invaded Afghanistan to build.

Instead, those poor naive fools are optimistic.

In Afghanistan, 70% say their own circumstances are improving, and 57% believe that the country overall is on the way up.

In Iraq, 65% believe their personal life is getting better, and 56% are upbeat about the country's economy.

Or maybe they just know better.
