"Drear in Pictures"

This week's issue of Time contains their annual "Year in Pictures" review. A lot of it is focused on Iraq, as would be expected. But take a look and tell me if you notice a particular slant to the images chosen.

Except for one picture of Afghani women registering to vote for the first time ever, you will not see one image from Afghanistan or Iraq that does not paint a dreary picture. You will not see images of Iraqis celebrating their freedom. You will not see images of smiling children greeting our soldiers. You will not see the Iraqi soccer team competing for the first time without fear of torture by Uday. In short, you will see nothing positive concerning the accomplishments made in Iraq or (with one exception) Afghanistan.

(Thank God for Arthur Chrenkoff.)
