Freedom Nexus Moves Out From Iraq; Failureism; Lebanese Democracy Babes; Dogs Committing Suicide. . .

Media for its desire for -- what I call -- "Failureism" in Iraq (Via : Roger L. Simon/Normblog/Prospect Magazine):

Will the big media outlets demand the same accountability of themselves that they demand of everyone else? They should, for the success of these elections was not so surprising to those who dug below the surface of Iraq.

These Mullah Tyrants must go. No ifs and buts about it. They are a danger to freedom in the Middle East and need to be put out of their misery.
