Iraqis March for Unity, Three Years After the Fall of Saddam

Egyptian Dictator, Hosni Mubarak, has given up hope,
John “Hawk” Murtha and the democrats have given up hope,
The Mainstream Media gave up hope a long time ago,
But… Iraqis continue their struggle for democracy.

Three years after the fall of the Hussein Regime, Iraq focuses on unity and security.

As the media paints a picture of Civil War, the terrorists in Iraq continue to murder innocent civilians. The worst massacre of the year on Friday was blamed on Al Zarqawi and his thugs and NOT on sectarian division.

After the suicide bombings yesterday at the Buratha mosque in Baghdad that killed over 70 people, Shiites protested for unity today in Iraq,
