Iraq Makes It to the Asian Cup Final

It's been several hours since Iraq qualified after defeating South Korea during a penalty shootout. The celebrations of Iraqis all over the country, and in the foreign countries where they congregate, have been truly remarkable. But it seems that most foreign news agencies, which cover every nitty gritty about Iraq, are not interested in the jubilant spectacle.

The images are amazing, Al-Iraqiya TV has been doing a good job reporting on the happy, spontaneous carnival, and from around Iraq, including Mosul.

Everyone who grabs the microphone is shouting out a positive message, and the recurring theme is that all Iraqis are united on this day.

Civil war? Despair? "Iraq is lost"?

It is really amazing what our Iraqi team did today. They qualified to the Asian Cup final and will play against Saudi Arabia on the 29/7/2007. On the other hand, there was nothing mentioned about the celebrations on the streets of all Iraqi cities in any news agency. I am really surprised. Why?
