Im going to link to your photos later today if ok with u as it marries in nicely with this article above. The BBC and other media agencies ran a survey and concluded that actually the Iraqis are feeling pretty buoyed up by their government - the 'surprise' they speak of is only a surprise to the BBC (et ilk ) as they try to perpetuate this doom and gloom image of a chaotic Iraq
