Good news from Iraq?

Good news from Iraq? Yes, believe it or not. And that’s good news for everyone. However you felt about the invasion (personally, I was torn) it’s in everyone’s interest that we succeed in turning Iraq into a stable democratic country. Those calling for the U.S. to get out (there are demonstrations planned to that effect), to my mind, are letting their knee-jerk “if the U.S. is doing something it must be bad” mindset blind them to the realities of the situation. The U.S. must succeed in Iraq, or things will be worse for everyone–us, the Iraqi people, everyone–than they are now, maybe even than they were with Saddam in power. Seems obvious to me. So why do some people not get it?
