Iraqi families that have been in exile, having escaped the worst of the violence are returning, many of which returned for Christmas, saying they feel more secure and safer now.
Hundreds of Christians gathered to celebrate Christmas in Baghdad, most acknowledging that improved security conditions have allowed them to move more freely throughout the city after returning from years-long exiles in Syria, Egypt, Jordan or Iraq's northern Kurdistan region.
Our military has done a wonderful job turning things around in Iraq... kudos to them for all their hard work and sacrifice.
Speaking of our military, Barack Obama also made an appearance to a Marine Corps base in Hawaii Kaneche Bay, where they were eating their Christmas dinner of salad, candied sweet potato with marshmallow topping, cream of mushroom soup, mashed potatoes, beef, ham, turkey, broccoli and corn.
"Just wanted to say hi, hey guys," Obama said as he walked into the Anderson dining hall which was decked out in Christmas decorations.

Short and sweet folks but couldn't resist bringing this little tidbit to my readers.
Viagra is the way to the Afghanistan man's ...um.... heart?
The Afghan chieftain looked older than his 60-odd years, and his bearded face bore the creases of a man burdened with duties as tribal patriarch and husband to four younger women. His visitor, a CIA officer, saw an opportunity, and reached into his bag for a small gift.
Funniest. Thing. Ever!!!!!
