The Washington Post reports a changed mood in Iraq:

With a hero who gave his life for the elections, a revived national anthem blaring from car stereos and a greater willingness to help police, the public mood appears to be moving more clearly against the insurgency in Iraq, political and security officials said.

In the week since national elections, police officers and Iraqi National Guardsmen said they have received more tips from the public, resulting in more arrests and greater effectiveness in their efforts to weaken the violent insurgency rocking the country.

Insurgent violence isn’t nearly at an end, as the Post also reports; yet insurgent-slamming seems to be growing ever stronger:

Iraqi security forces arrested a former general in Saddam Hussein’s military whom they accuse of financing insurgents, including the makers of roadside bombs used against U.S. troops, the country’s interim government said Sunday.

Keep your hopes (and Nazi salute) up, Janeane Garofolo! There’s still time for your explodey insurgent pals to fight back! (By the way, check Garofalo’s eyes in that image. Anybody who’s ever been in an argument with a deranged leftoid will know That Look; equal parts hostility, ignorance, and fear.)

Hey, remember Afghanistan? Arthur Chrenkoff does, and he’s got a bunch of good news to report. Here’s to globalisation; a Pole, in Brisbane, writing about Afghanistan, appearing in the Wall Street Journal. Sweet.
