It always cracks me up when MSM finally has to acknowledge the world isn’t as they’ve been trying to portray it. They’ve been telling themselves, and trying to convince the American public, that Iraq is a quagmire. They buzz around in their little utopia and then one day find they can’t continue the lies. For ABC News, today is one of those days.

Surprising levels of optimism prevail in Iraq with living conditions improved, security more a national worry than a local one, and expectations for the future high.

An ABC News poll in Iraq, conducted with Time magazine and other media partners, includes some remarkable results: Despite the daily violence there, most living conditions are rated positively, seven in 10 Iraqis say their own lives are going well, and nearly two-thirds expect things to improve in the year ahead.

Surprisingly, given the insurgents’ attacks on Iraqi civilians, more than six in 10 Iraqis feel very safe in their own neighborhoods, up sharply from just 40 percent in a poll in June 2004. And 61 percent say local security is good � up from 49 percent in the first ABC News poll in Iraq in February 2004.

“Surprising”… “remarkable”… “surprisingly”… words that express the utter disbelief by MSM that the war in Iraq may actually be seeing positive results. Of course, ABC has to sprinkle the negative in throughout the story just to keep hope alive. But it’s pretty hard to ignore the positive news coming from their own poll. The article continues:

Average household incomes have soared by 60 percent in the last 20 months (to $263 a month), 70 percent of Iraqis rate their own economic situation positively, and consumer goods are sweeping the country.

So let’s review that. In Iraq,
  1. Most living conditions are rated positively,
  2. 70% of Iraqis say their own lives are going well,
  3. Nearly 2/3 of Iraqis expect things to improve in the year ahead,
  4. Over 60% of Iraqis feel very safe in their own neighborhoods,
  5. 61% of Iraqis say local security is good,
  6. Average household incomes have soared by 60% in the last 20 months,
  7. 70% of Iraqis rate their own economic situation positively.
Yet ABC News is “surprised”. That is not surprising.
