Topic: Something that WON'T make the headlines

I found this on CNN today. This of course will probably not get ANY play, but here it is.

Iraqi leaders at a military camp east of Baghdad have given the U.S. military a $1,000 check to aid victims of California's wildfires, a U.S. military official said Monday."In the months I've been here, I have never been so moved," Army Col. Darel Maxfield, the senior U.S. military official at Camp Besmaya, said in an e-mail. Many of the Marines at that camp are from Camp Pendleton, the U.S. Marine Corps facility north of San Diego that has been the scene of some of the fires.

And a $1000 is a heck of a lot of money in Iraq.

It's too bad that the major news networks don't show this kind of thing on TV. It's always the bad news that gets the most viewers.

Is this a great one-off, or is there any significance, i wonder?

That's just awesome. Too bad no one will ever know about it. Stupid media.
