Iraq update July 29, 2007

First off, Iraq wins the Asia Cup! Gotta be a good day to be Iraqi. This celebration went well, with all injuries due to bullets falling from the sky. For the life of me, I'll never understand how firing your AK47 into the air in celebration ever seemed to them like a good idea. What can you say though, it's there country.

Prime minister makes first trip to Diyala since taking office. Maliki visits Diyala from MNF-I. The Diyala Awakening gets immediate support from the central government so this one should work even better than the Anbar Awakening as getting the political wheels turning was the slow part in Anbar.

During the meeting, Maliki addressed the peoples’ ability to rise above terrorism, assuring those present that the central government will continue to work closely with the provincial government and is committed to the people of Diyala.
