Pools in Baghdad


From Brian in Auburn, Washington: “Not sure if you had seen this story (‘Simple Pleasures’ by Rod Nordland) about the US military rebuilding swimming pools in Iraq but it looks like some of the more mainstream media is finally noticing that things are actually getting better there.”

It occurs to me that we wouldn’t be engaged in building swimming pools if things were going badly. As you read the story, there are some negative parts to it (some accidental drownings). But filter that out and what you see is a real feel-good article about our mlitary helping the Iraqis return to a life of normalcy.

Thanks, Brian!
