Gosh, and after all the US has done to 'stabilise' countries in Central/South America, Africa and the Caribbean you would think the Iraqis would be grateful to have been 'chosen' by the US to bring 'democracy' and 'freedom'.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

I would think that anyone could see that the headline itself is rather revisionist. For one thing it takes as fact that lives in Iraq are "safer." Safer than what? Than they were at an earlier point in the invasion? I think there's a lot of information not there. It is, after all, a headline, not an article or any sort of reporting. I have to say if you expect the Iraqi civilians to be grateful to the U.S. at this point is to state that you don't have much information about the situation.
