Iraqi civilians fight back against terrorists!

Note the difference between what I see as important in this news (my title above) and the liberal media sees as important (their title below). Attacks have been going on for quite a while. What is new? Iraqi civilians fought back and killed some of the terrorists, and wounded more. What does the media see as important? That the terrorists have not just rolled over and given up.

Iraqi insurgents resume deadly attacks

....... Now the people of this mixed village of Sunni and Shia Muslims, they ignored the threat and they did turn out to vote.

We understand that last night the insurgents came back to punish the people of al-Mudhariya, but instead of metering out that punishment the villagers fought back and they killed five of the insurgents and wounded eight. They then burnt the insurgents' car. So the people of that village have certainly had enough of the insurgents.

Another article with a similar message is the usual insightful reporting of Charles Krauthammer. His article here provides some historical perspective about the willingness of the MSM to believe only in their illusions.
Iraqis turned out to vote in great numbers, with great enthusiasm and determination. Surprise. The media have not been as surprised, noted a friend of mine, since the Nicaraguans turned out in their 1990 election to kick out the Sandinistas.
These two articles provide some great perspective you will not see much coverage of outside the blogs. The tide of victory is turning our way.
