Instead of trying to read something that wasn't intended

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to He get it ...

You could maybe attempt to answer the question.

But honestly I did get a good laugh about {...from his bitter, vile hatred of America and its power.} You really do not understand the whole thing do you?

As I said try to answer the question and leave personalities out of the equation.

Who have been there since the end of Hostilities and that is what I'm being told directly by people that I trust not the media who are all doom and gloom. While the main city of Baghdad is somewhat more or less working the Hospitals certainly are not as I'm getting e-mails from friends there right now asking for medical supplies things like Panadol is just not available let alone the more complex things like what would be required for any form of major surgery. Did you know that rubber gloves for surgeons just are not available they are reusing these things as they have no alternative and they can only wash then occasionally in dirty water as there is no running water or electricity to sterilize them with or alcohol either. There are major cross infections occurring just because the basics are missing or not available.

While I no longer do any medical work I still am friends with several people who work for the organization "Doctors without Boarders" and these people do quite a lot of good in the world so along with a few friends in the industry so to speak we are arranging items to be sent over there but unfortunately we will only be scratching the surface as it is impossible to supply everything that is required in just the disposables and as far as drugs of any kind go we are at the mercy of the Australian Government who refuse to allow these items to leave Australian shores. They for some reason seem to think that it will cost them money for these medicines so we are not allowed to ship them. Then there is the problem of shipping these items as well as it is virtually impossible to get a carrier to transport anything into Iraq.

Currently we have 3 containers ready to go with no one willing to ship them in anything like a direct route that will reach there in under several months. These containers will be off loaded at several different ports and then shipped on if and when ships become available so we have no definite time frame for their arrival and there is a Premium Price involved in shipping these as well. SO we are paying top dollar and getting a substandard service with no known delivery time.

For someone who has always prided himself in the accuracy of his findings and the integrity of his sources, I had to have a giggle at your quotes being attributed to Geraldo. What a slice!

Anyhow I'm not going to take this anywhere, other than personally I just see it as about effective as Bush's plastic turkey photo shoot, or landing on the carrier. YAY! Whatever, there's a war going on too.

CARE implements a broad range of projects in the water and sanitation sector in Iraq, including emergency repairs and long-term rehabilitation of infrastructure, supply and installation of generators and technical support programs. Our engineers have rehabilitated major water and sewage treatment plants, installed hundreds of kilometers of water networks, and made emergency repairs to water and sanitation systems in hospitals and health centers. Since the 2003 conflict, CARE's projects in this sector have improved the quantity and quality of water provided to more than 7.3 million residents.

CARE's health programme, led by a group of Iraqi doctors with long-term experience in the health sector in Iraq, includes infrastructure rehabilitation, health education and distribution activities. These projects have assisted more than 4.2 million Iraqis post-conflict and are integrated with activities in the water and sanitation sector to ensure that essential services are maintained at an adequate standard.

Since the 2003 conflict, CARE has rehabilitated more than 150 health centers and 40 hospitals. Hygiene and cleaning materials, blankets, supplementary food, insulin, I.V. sets and oxygen regulators, as well as other emergency medical supplies and equipment have been delivered to health facilities. CARE is working to supply laboratory equipment and supplies to reinstate Iraq's laboratory capacity and sentinel disease surveillance system, which will ultimately benefit the entire population of the country.

I guess Australia has been especially blessed in its involvement in Iraq. I understand that Australian SAS soldiers were the first to exchange fire with Iraqi soldiers and, God willing, we have yet to suffer a military casualty.

" (Warning: Not for Anti-Americans or Anti war supporters)"

Do you seriously believe that those who have seen the bad side of the story have closed minds, and do not want to acknowledge the positive events that are occurring simultaneously?

Bias works two ways. Perhaps you are just as biased in your viewpoint as are those whom you condemn.

Yes - gee most are so closed minded - gee when they think that a man forced to wear womens panties on his face is worse than beheading a young man. Makes me believe they would support pictures showing americans doing good - Gee why didn't you say they were staged.

Gee - when these Anti-American media folks and posters continue to bring up the tourcher that Iraqis sufferred in prison. But don't say anything about burnt bodies hung off bridges while these Islmic (religon of peace) dance for joy.

Gee - and you think we would say you all would understand and support those picture. Gee where was the post "Staged" - that the majority of military are doing an excellent job, and thats over 100,000 men and women!

And to say warning not for Anti-American folks is offensive to you - Get a life - to freeking bad.

Walk a mile in solders shoes then - speak - have someone shot at you - then speak - I've been there - These liberals are tring to turn this into another Vietnam - same vile Bull that they tossed at us coming back from Vietnam - they didn't know how we helped thousands - they read stories of solders killing kids... they didn't print the part where the kid had Granades taped to his hands by the VC - or was as they call them today sucided bomober - Na - why print the truth - when lies and liberal BS - gets you more milage.

Didn't print the horrors the american POW's lived with daily - Na why print the truth. Didn't print or report the horrors that the VC did to our men - cutting off parts of their bodies for payment! Na - Why print the truth. But let an American (5 or 6) in Mi'li and oh my god - or in the prison in Iraqi the liberal press is over it like stink on dog poop.

Yea - what you see in those photos is the truth - what you read in the liberal media are the lies..

You should know that military intervention only works when there are set objectives for the military to achieve and they are given a free hand to use what is available to achieve this end. The trouble with Vietnam was that these people where sent in to fight a war without the full support of the Government so they effectively had at least one hand tied behind their back and where bound to lose.

Now about what is going on in Iraq right now there is a very definite credibility problem that the US and others forces are facing and that is on the one hand they are supposed to be a liberating force who will only bring good but on the other hand they are ignoring the rules of war example the Gevenia Convention. Granted the other side doesn't follow these but aren't we supposed to be better than these savages? If we lower our standards to their level we are no better than what we are attempting to destroy and will do as much damage as those that we are attempting to vanquish.
