Via Jeff @ Shape of Days, pictures from Iraq like these certainly aren't making it into the papers. (Click & then scroll down to see photos) More signs that things are not as the media would have you believe.
To the untrained eye (me), I would call this "winning the peace". Lots of thumbs up from the children and fascination with new things (balloon animals!). Their smiles and kisses for the troops show that there is an entire generation filled with hope in Iraq.
