Pictures You Won't See on the Evening News

I recently read a comment on another blog in which the writer stated that U.S. actions in Iraq have done nothing other than to cause more hatred for Americans around the world and to create more terrorists.

Considering the fact that the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the 1993 guerilla attack in Mogadishu, the 1998 bombing of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, the October 12, 2000 attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, and the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were all before the invasion of Iraq, it's clear that these have people hated us for many years. Did Iraq cause them to hate us more? It's difficult to see how it would be possible to hate more than the level of hate required to kill thousands of innocent people.

My only conclusion is that the writer who made this comment must have meant that our presence in Iraq has caused a greater number of people to hate us. It's understandable that someone might come to that conclusion, given that 95% of the reporting on Iraq that we see in the mainstream media is negative. However, there is another side to what is going on in Iraq, which almost never gets reported.

Perhaps U.S. presence in Iraq has caused some new hatred of Americans. However, it is certain that American efforts in Iraq have cultivated good will and respect in the minds of many others.

The following are just a few of the pictures that you're not likely to see on the evening news.

Does it look like U.S. actions in Iraq have done nothing other than to cause more hatred for Americans?
