List of accomplishments in Iraq 1 year later

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,114684,00.html

On the anniversary of the start of the Iraq War, the United State Central Command in Tampa, Fla., listed these accomplishments of Operation Iraqi Freedom (search):



Operation Iraqi Freedom Coalition Forces have successfully liberated 25 million Iraqis from the brutal dictatorship of Saddam Hussein.

These highlights provide information regarding the accomplishments of the Coalition throughout the past year.

The OIF Coalition is comprised of 34 countries, including 11 NATO countries, and they have provided over 22,000 troops to support the efforts in Iraq. There are two multi-national divisions in Iraq: one led by the United Kingdom in central-south Iraq, and one led by Poland in south Iraq.

The international community has pledged at least $32 billion to improve schools, health care, roads, water and electricity supplies, agriculture and other essential services.

The World Bank, International Monetary Fund, the European Union, and 38 countries have pledged to extend loans and grants to Iraq. Other nations are contributing humanitarian assistance, extending export credits and reducing Iraqi debt.

The UN Security Council on Oct. 16, 2003, unanimously approved Resolution 1511 that calls on member states to support the work of the multinational force in Iraq.

Security:

America's armed forces are taking the offensive against remnants of Saddam Hussein's regime and foreign terrorists, leading more than 1,600 patrols a day and conducting an average of 180 raids a week.

45 of the 55 most wanted Hussein regime members have been captured or killed, including the brutal dictator himself, whose capture sent a powerful message to the Iraqi people that the tyranny of the past will never return. The capture of Saddam Hussein provided a boost to intelligence throughout western Iraq.

The quality of intelligence is cascading as a result of the Saddam capture: the intelligence is of higher quality and allows a higher level of captures. Saddam's capture is allowing the Coalition to apprehend more mid-level financiers and organizers.

More than 230,000 Iraqis now provide security for their fellow citizens, and Iraqi security forces now account for the majority of all forces in Iraq. These forces include Iraqi Police, Iraqi Civil Defense Corps, Iraqi Border Police, Iraqi Facility Protection Service and the New Iraqi Army.

Law/Governance:

Since July, the 25-person Iraqi Governing Council has had the authority to: name interim Ministers; exercise government oversight; prepare policy initiatives on Iraq’s national security, including reform of the armed forces, police and courts; lead development of a constitution; and approve Iraq's national budget. 24 Iraqi Cabinet Members also contribute to the business of the government.

First time in 13 years, an ambassador to the US was appointed to restore diplomatic relations.

90 percent of Iraq’s districts have municipal/government councils with more than 19 million Iraqis engaging in local political discourse.

Ministry of Justice has established a Council of Judges to oversee the judiciary and prosecutors. Also, defendants are now provided lawyers.

Public Health:

240 hospitals and most of Iraq’s 1200 clinics have reopened. 70 private hospitals are operating.

800 tons of high protein biscuits have been delivered to 15 Governorates for malnourished children and pregnant/nursing mothers.

1.09 million humanitarian daily rations have been distributed to date.

22 million children and 700,000 women have been inoculated against diseases since the war; 90 percent of all Iraqi children now receive routine vaccinations.

Pharmaceuticals distribution improved from 0 to 12,000 tons today, more than $210 million approved for the Iraqi Ministry of Heath for pharmaceutical supplies and equipment, basic health care services, medical equipment and power generators for hospitals.

Schools:

Nearly all schools are open and 5.1 million students are attending class.

25 Fulbright Scholarships awarded for the first time in 14 years; Fulbright Office added 2 new programs for Iraqis.

Over 13,500 school buildings in Iraq; $4.4 million spent to complete 2,299 school renovations; UNICEF and other NGOs are rehabilitating 105 schools; 183K desks, 57K chairs, 61K chalkboards and 25K metal cabinets have been distributed.

33,000 teachers and 3,000 supervisors trained in instructional practices and classroom management strategies.

Commerce and Trade:

Iraqis use a single, unified currency for the first time in 15 years; 4.6 trillion new Iraqi dinars in circulation.

Iraq Stock Exchange will open in April; Iraq Central Bank is fully independent and has been opened since Sept 03.

83 percent of all pre-war bank branches are open.

Umm Qasr Port turned over to Iraqi control in Jan 04.

393,950 jobs have been generated.

Estimated crude oil export revenues exceed $3.3 billion for Iraqi reconstruction.

Telephone service continues to expand with 95% of service outside Baghdad.

More than 170 newspaper are published in Iraq

Power:

4400 megawatts per day is the current seven-day average, this is up from 300 megawatts per day in 2003.

USAID will spend more than $250 million infrastructure repair funds on power rehabilitation and an additional $75 million allocated to power reconstruction.

Water:

Coalition programs have cleared over 16,500 km of irrigation canals, helping over 10,000 farms.

Water storage in most Iraqi reservoirs is approaching historic averages.

Rehabilitated water treatment plants will treat nearly 800 million liters/day, benefiting 3.5 million people.

90 percent of Iraqis will have potable water by Apr 05.

Quality of Life:

Religious rites are being re-established for all sects.

New Ministry of Housing and Construction has started 1,008 new homes and is working with the UN to start 7 housing projects with 3,528 units.

Military Supplies Used:

Item Quantity Dollar Value
MREs 42.1 mil meals $285.0 mil
Bottled water 120 mil bottles $31.0 mil
Cots 342,000 $18.2 mil
Lumber 17.25 mil board-feet $6.9 mil
Plywood 750,000 sheets $10.9 mil
Combat Boots 673,000 pair $48.7 mil
Body Armor 191,000 vests $105.0 mil
Body Armor 361,000 plates $180.5 mil

Seems to me Iraq is making a lot more progress than the liberal press wants us to believe !!!!!

Anytime we have a Republican Administration the News media is gunning for them, it seems like its always been that way. Clinton could do no wrong for them when he was in office. LOL.

I dont know if guys my age catch on to this but MTV news is about as far left as you can get imo.

They always go on about how teens should vote which they should but they always show more of the liberal running mate and what he plans to do then the republican canidate. Its really annoying. Kerry gets 10 min and bush gets 2-3 minutes.

I am afraid Kerry is going to pick John Edwards for his VP candidate, double barf, the only thing Edwards ever right did as our Senator was decide not to run for re-election, he needs to get his law practice going again, cause that ole boy needs a job, LOL. President and VP is already taken, hehe. As far as I am concerned he is a disgrace to the state of North Carolina, damned liberal jackass. :p

Bottom line on the WMD. If I was a tyrant and could get away with anything in my country and I had 12 + years to hide or move the WMD so no one could find it. I could do it !!!!

Interesting thing last week I watched a few news shows with Hans Blix ( head of the U.N Weapons Inspectors) said that "With all the intel everybody believed Saddam still had weapons if he did not why did he constantly over the 12 years keep throwing out the UN Inspectors if he had nothing to hide"!!!

He could very easily have put those weapons in Syria, Iran, or several other neighboring countries who would have probably all have been glad to get them, I have heard this theory more than once, and it is probably right!

i think we ought to find the worst way he put somebody in Iraq to death, and do him the same way.

Same for the snipers and other killers too, put em out in a big *** park, and turn some of the victims families loose with some sniper rifles.
[^side note...^]


I hate mtv. i hate most everything they own, which unfortunately now includes vh1. Music Telvision, and VH1, Where the Music Comes First. bull****. They shouldnt even show candidates. I could see the showing ads for them on commercial breaks, and ads for their rock the vote campaign, but not on scheduled programming.

What people need to do is stop attacking Bush and realize how damn good of a job hes done. People walk around taking everything for granted. By everything I mean the fact that we dont walk around in flak jackets or wearing gas masks. Unfortunatly in a time like this that a day when nothing happens is a good day. When was the last time we had a serious act of terrorism since 9/11? we havn't. The terrorists definatly didn't give up, especially since we are leading the world the war in taking them down.
