Yay Iraq! Part II
Senior clerics in the restive city of Mosul have pledged to oust elements seeking violence from their mosques.
They also denounced killing of innocent Iraqis whether Muslims and non-Muslims and all attacks targeting local security forces.
"We call on all the citizens of Mosul to remain steadfast in the face of terrorist and criminal elements and cooperate with the authorities and security services to put an end to violence," the clerics said in a statement following the meeting.
In addition, I am sure that I did not read about this in the SAEN:
The security situation has slightly improved in the city in the past two weeks, with security forces mounting patrols in districts which until recently were viewed as no-go areas.
There is no doubt that we have a long way to go in Iraq, and as the SAEN shows us there is plenty of bad news to be reported. All the Commando is asking for is that the SAEN balance their reporting with some good news.
