Chrenkoff Has More Good Iraq News

Arthur has yet a thrid installment of Good News From Iraq (if you missed them, check out the first and the second additions). Yet another example of the blogosphere picking up and running with the ball the mainstream Media continues to drop. Here's a bit:

And let us not forget the humanitarian problem that doesn't exist anymore: in the first quarter of 2004, 92,679 applications for asylum in the West were lodged; this represents a 16% decrease on the previous quarter and a 25% on the same quarter in 2003. The reason? "Iraqis and Afghans comprised the two biggest asylum groups in 2001 and 2002, but their numbers have dropped dramatically since then. The number of Iraqi asylum-seekers in the first quarter of 2004, for example, was 2,143 – 81 per cent below the figure from the corresponding period last year." That's what's called solving the refugee problem at the source - the only method that really works. Meanwhile, more than 11,000 Iraqi refugees looked after by the United Nations have returned home since July last year.

Read the whole thing. It's worth your time.
