Kurdistan Singing U.S. Praises

File this under "News You Won't Hear in the Mainstream Media." reports that a group called Kurdistan Development Corporation is sponsoring an ad campaign thanking America "for helping us win our freedom."

Bayan Sami Abdul Rahman, Chairman of the Kurdistan Development Corporation and Kurdistan’s High Representative to the UK, says the commercials are necessary to counter the American media’s largely negative coverage of Iraq.

"We feel the mainstream media,” she tells Newsmax, "is focusing on the negative stories coming out of Iraq and very rarely highlighting the good news.”

"We’re not saying that the media doesn’t tell the truth. They do tell the truth. There is violence. There is an insurgency. But it’s not the whole truth, or the whole picture.”

Rahman expressed concern, however, about the talk of a U.S. pullout from Iraq:

"If people are saying that America should withdraw their troops now, that would be a catastrophe, not only for the people of Iraq but also for the Middle East and the wider intentional community and the United States,” she says.

If that doesn't make some on the left squirm, this certainly will:

"The people of Kurdistan and the government of Kurdistan,” she (Rahman) gushes, "admire President Bush’s courage in fighting Saddam Hussein despite some of the doubts of America’s international partners.”

On the Kurdistan website Kurdistan - The Other Iraq , H.E. Masoud Barzani, President, Kurdistan Region in Iraq, further praised the United States:

The United States has never wavered in its quest to help Iraqis build a democracy that rewards compromise and consensus. The ever generous American people have paid a tragic price, the lives of their finest men and women, to advance the banner of freedom and democracy, a sacrifice for which we are profoundly grateful.

It just doesn't sound like the image of the United States has been tarnished around the world like liberal Democrats like to claim. Certainly, U.S. image is shining brightly in places where people really know what is going on.
