Better News Not via MSM
Theft without permission of DrD*s comment:
One must stoop to low grade theft to bring wider focus on the fact that educated minorities in countries like Iran and Afghanistan want to be free of fundamentalist oppression.
In this case the Ayatollah Khomeini*s own grandson!
How unpopular is the United States in the Middle East--especially Iran?
Maybe not as unpopular as the MSM might lead us to believe.

the Ayatollah Khomeini's grandson
is calling upon the United States to invade Iran and free the country from the theocracy created by his grandfather. Google his name and follow the Daily Telegraph and BBC links among others.

On my own recent visit to Baghdad, Karbala, and Najaf, as well as to Basra and then Kurdistan, I would say that I saw persuasive evidence of the unleashing of real politics in Iraq and of the highly positive effect of same. Conversation with Khomeini suggests to me that in at least one other highly important neighboring country, the United States has also managed to get on the right side of history, as we used to say.
